What Wollongong Speech Pathology is doing
You might also like to know about the measures Wollongong Speech Pathology has taken to manage the risks of exposure to COVID-19 when we visit clients’ homes.
- COVID screening with everyone we plan to see face-to-face
- physical distancing
- adapting clinical tasks to be “no touch”
- increased hygiene measures such as hand sanitising before and after visits, and cleaning equipment between visits
- use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), when it is indicated
Please help us to manage the risks to the health and safety of our staff by cooperating with the measures we have outlined above. Do the same things for us that you are doing to keep your own family and friends healthy and well.
What if you are a “vulnerable” person?
Many of our clients fall in to a high risk category for COVID-19. We know that older Australians are at higher risk of dying from COVID-19. We also know that people with complex medical needs, in particular people with respiratory compromise, are at increased risk.
If you are high-risk we will work with you to find a solution. We are spending a lot of time risk assessing individual situations, and changing these risk assessments as new information is available. So let us work together, to keep you safe.
It is very likely that telepractice would be our preference for you. If telepractice is not an option, we could consider a face-to-face service with additional PPE.
