Champions Pediatric Associates would like to remind all our

families of the new policies set in place to better protect the

health and safety of our patients.

 

  • We will see ONLY Well Children in the mornings.  This will include any weight 
           checks, medication checks, and well child exams.
  • Sick Visit appointments will be scheduled ONLY in the afternoons.
  • NO WALK IN appointments will be allowed.
  • Please bring ONLY the child(ren) being seen to the appointment
           to limit exposure.
  • No toys will be in the lobby or patient rooms
           to prevent the spreading of germs.

 

As always, the health of our patients is the upmost concern. 
 

We want to THANK YOU for your understanding and cooperation during this time.

*** Important Announcement ***

 

Out of concern for our patients/staff well-being, we are adjusting our schedules to
reduce risks associated with COVID19. While these changes may cause an 
inconvenience to some, it is in effort to prioritize safety for all families, both staff
and patient alike.

 

We announced recently that we will not be accepting ANY walk-in patients. 
This will continue to remain in effect until further notice.
 
All phone calls for appointments are being screened by our staff. Understand this
is an attempt to comply with health organization recommendations and does
prolong our average phone call time. We ask that all patients do their best to have patience during their phone call as well as work with the operator in answering all questions to the best of your ability.
 
To assist with the screening as well as the hygienic aspect of COVID19 we are
only scheduling Well Child appointments in the first half of the day. This will be
any type of exam that is intended to be for a healthy child including, medication
checks, weight checks, sports physicals, etc. If your child is having any sick
symptoms and you are on the schedule for one of these appointments,  PLEASE
call us prior to your appointment so we may screen as well as adjust your visit type
and time if needed. Just bringing your child in around healthy children is counterproductive in reducing the spread of any illness.
 
This is an ever-changing scenario and we do expect more adjustments in the
near future.
 
Our gratitude for your compliance and understanding is immeasurable.

 

As you are aware the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 has spread to the United States and as close as surrounding counties.  While we expect the virus to    spread further and new cases to be identified, the CDC strongly believe there       is no reason to panic. 

Below is some guidance and resources for you to learn more and aid you.

 

 

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is in the family of coronaviruses that is often the cause of the "common cold." However, in 2019 a Novel version of this virus was detected in Wuhan, China, now called COVID-19. COVID-19 spreads from person to person or via surfaces. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, tiny droplets containing the virus are released into the air and immediate surroundings. It is possible for an uninfected person to get COVID-19 infection by directly coming into contact with these droplets or by touching surfaces or objects affected by these droplets and then touching his or her mouth, nose or eyes. 

Does CDC have resources on how to treat and care for patients with COVID-19?

Yes, the CDC has several resources. Factors that may help guide the assessment of a patient with COVID-19 includes assessing their travel history, current symptoms, as well being aware of the epidemiology of COVID-19 in your local community.

What is the treatment available for COVID-19? Is there a vaccine?

Treatment is mainly supportive care. There is currently no vaccine available to prevent COVID-19 but vaccines are being tested and there has been recruitment for an experimental vaccine in the state of Washington. The NIH also currently has a clinical trial investigating the use of certain medication to treat COVID-19.

How can I protect my family?

Prevention is Key!

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

·  Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 

·  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

·  Stay home when you are sick.

·  Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 

·  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 

·  Follow CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.

o    CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

o    Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.

·  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

o    If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
