Ormond’s Family Chiropractic Essential Healthcare COVID-19 Safety Statement
As we continue to learn and adapt to the ever-changing environment around COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our patients, staff and doctors is our highest priority.
Ormond’s Family Chiropractic is closely following the guidance from national and local chiropractic associations and healthcare organizations to direct our actions. Many, including the International Chiropractors Association, view chiropractic care as an essential healthcare service that often treats patients with a wide array of health conditions.
We are happy to confirm that all Ormond’s Family Chiropractic clinics are now open, and we remain committed to providing convenient and affordable chiropractic care in our local communities. We understand that many of our patients will continue to have healthcare needs that can be helped through chiropractic care, and we feel a responsibility and commitment to our patients.
We are closely monitoring recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health departments. We pledge to communicate if our position needs to be modified as the COVID-19 circumstances develop.
Thank you on behalf of everyone here at Ormond’s Family Chiropractic for your loyalty, support and patience through these troubling times. We understand the gravity of this virus and the toll that it is taking on everyone. We ensure you that Ormond’s Family Chiropractic is taking proper precautions at this time to mitigate the spread of this virus and ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Once you arrive at Ormond’s Family Chiropractic, if anyone is currently waiting to be seen, we will ensure that you will have at least a 6 foot distance from the patient waiting to be seen. If needed, we will ask you to kindly wait outside or in your car and we will text you when the Doctor is ready to see you. From there, our front desk will walk back your clip board to the Doctor ensuring that you do not have to touch anything. We thoroughly clean and sanitize the adjusting tables between every single patient. Our goal is to limit the amount of contact that you (the patient) has with anything in the office.
During these days of quarantine and self-isolation Ormond’s Family Chiropractic is doing its part to let patients know that it’s taking every precaution to ensure a clean place of business with focused interest in our facilities health and hygiene. Everyone has to be adaptable and Ormond’s Family Chiropractic, it’s staff of chiropractors and wellness coordinators are no different. Personal healthcare is our business, and we’re always cognizant of that. We understand amidst a national emergency that we are all presented with unique challenges, which is why Ormond’s Family Chiropractic wants to remind our patients they can continue to take advantage of our care while we continue our efforts to help flatten the curve.
