Covid-19 Safety Protocol Frequently Asked Questions

We have adopted current CMS, CDC and Department of Health guidelines for New Jersey. Some questions you might have before visiting us here at Montvale Health Sport + Spine:

What precautions is MHS+S taking to protect patients?

    1. Patients are prescreened prior to scheduling for symptoms/risks of COVID-19. Patients are scheduled in a very limited time schedule- 1 patient at a time. They are informed of what we will do on arrival, including valet type approach in which you call from your car and we will bring you in.
    2. Staff is trained by our Infection Prevention Professional. They are prescreened before each shift as well and will be working a limited schedule. Hand sanitizing, hand washing, use of PPE, disinfecting and cleaning, and social distancing will be practiced regularly.
    3. When entering the clinic, patients will be asked to do a temperature check, be given gloves, a mask, shoe coverings, and a gown, and will be asked to put personal belongings such as purses in a plastic bag. Staff will do the same from a different entrance.
    4. Policies and signage are posted throughout the clinic as reminders.

Why is PPE important?

PPE is worn to protect wearer from exposure of droplets and contaminants. PPE reduces exposure risks to wearer as well as others when used correctly.

Is social distancing being performed at the clinic?

Yes. Chairs are kept 6 feet apart in our entrance area. Staff also follows social distancing.

What extra precautions are providers taking?

Providers follow all in #1 B). Individual guidance and input on all protocols with our Infection Control Professional. Providers have reviewed ALL infection control measures in place and team meetings to evaluate our compliance with all aspects.

Do most clinics have an Infection Prevention and Control nurse on staff?

No, but in this COVID-19 era, available Infection Prevention and Control nurses are consulting as requested. MHS+S has hired one to maximize the highest level of care here at our clinic.
