COVID-19 Protection

COVID-19 Protection at The Woods Women’s Group

The Woods Women’s Group Patients,
 
The health and well being of our patients, staff, and community is our first priority. Amidst growing concern around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking all the CDC and IDPH recommendations and precautions to prevent viral transmission to ensure your safety in our facilities. 

What The Woods Women’s Group is Doing

Prevention Screening
– The Woods Women’s Group will be contacting all Patients prior to their scheduled office visits in order to reiterate and confirm a health status check as recommended by the CDC.

– Patients presenting with COVID-19 symptoms – fever, cough and/or shortness of breath – will be rescheduled per CDC guidelines and their referring MD will be notified.

– Those Patients who fall into a “high risk” category, including Patients who have traveled to known COVID-19 “hotspots”, even if they are asymptomatic, will be asked to reschedule their appointment 14 days from the date of their current appointment.

– Out of an abundance of caution, The Woods Women’s Group will be recommending that Patients over the age of 65, as well as Patients with known immuno-compromised conditions such as Cancer and Diabetes, consider rescheduling their appointments as well.

Cleaning  
The Woods Women’s Group always follows the highest level of OSHA sanitization guidelines. We have enhanced these preventative measures in order to protect our staff, Patients and the community at large against any additional risk factors associated with the spread of COVID-19.

Health Status Monitoring  
The Woods Women’s Group has initiated an “Active Monitoring Schedule” for all staff Members to ensure that our responsibility towards your scheduled visit starts long before you walk through our doors. Through active and consistent self monitoring, The Woods Women’s Group will contribute to maintaining the highest possible levels of risk mitigation while providing essential musculoskeletal health services for you during this national emergency.

Scheduled Surgeries
In accordance with changes in hospital policy, your surgeon may be contacting you to reschedule or postpone current elective procedures.
