Patient Information Related to Coronavirus
We continue to monitor the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As a healthcare provider, we have an obligation to our patients, providers, staff, and community. The CDC and KDHE recommendations are updated regularly and therefore our practices will change as needed to remain in compliance with these agencies recommendations to monitor and manage the spread of the virus. The following processes will be implemented:
Screening/Questionnaire will need to be completed during the scheduling and check-in process for your appointment.
All visitors of MAO will also need to complete the same questionnaire before being allowed to stay in the building as a guest.
Have you recently been experiencing any of the following:
- Dry cough
- Chest congestion
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Loss of taste and/or smell
If the patient answers YES to any of the questions above, the patient will not receive any services and they will be instructed to return to their vehicles, call our office to reschedule their appointment and call their primary healthcare provider. A minimum of 10 days is required before rescheduling the appointment.
We require you wear a MASK when in the clinic
Due to the rapid increase in COVID numbers in the community, MAO will require ALL patients to wear a mask while in the building. If the patient refuses to wear a mask, they will be asked to leave and reschedule for a later date.
All visitors will be screened in the same manner as the patients.
Visitors will be limited to one person, preferably necessary to make medical decisions.
Visitors answering yes to exposure or respiratory symptoms will not be allowed in clinic.
Please call 316-630-9300 if you have questions or concerns.
