Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus

Covid 19 or Coronavirus is spread by respiratory droplets from an infected person coughing or sneezing.  Since our waiting room can bring together well and sick children in close proximity, we are attempting to reduce your risk of exposure in our office by limiting your exposure to other patients.  Starting immediately, we are asking all patients to wait in their cars until their exam room is available.  The following will be our protocol.  Please be patient as we navigate this new workflow.  We do this in the best interest of everyone's health.

Upon arrival to the office parking lot

1.  Please call our office to check in.  

2.  We will ask to verify your insurance and collect your copay.  Please have your credit card ready for us to process.  

3.  Will we next ask for your cell phone number to call you when your exam room is ready.

4.  When we call you to come upstairs, proceed to the front desk where our nurse or medical assistant will be waiting to do your child's vital signs and bring your family directly to your room.

What is coronavirus?

  COVID 19 is the novel coronavirus that has spread to virtually every part of the world. Although there are other coronaviruses,COVID 19 is new and has never been a strain that humans were exposed to. It is infectious to everyone. 

What are the symptoms of COVID 19?

  It causes fever, cough, shortness of breath. Many people exhibit mild symptoms. Much of this is based on the person’s age. Thankfully in children, COVID 19 causes none to mild symptoms with very few needing hospitalization. Young adults also have mild illness with very low mortality rates. On the other hand, person older than 60 have more serious symptoms and experience higher mortality. 

What can I do to prevent getting COVID 19?

  Coronavirus is spread by respiratory droplet. You can reduce spread by good (20 second) handwashing or using alcohol based hand sanitizers. You should also avoid large gathering and practice social distancing. Social distancing is restricting or limiting large groups of people from coming close together to stop or slow the spread of infectious disease. Please stay home if you are sick! You especially want to limit exposure to anyone who is high risk, including older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions.

How do I get tested for coronavirus?

WE DO NOT TEST FOR CORONAVIRUS IN THE OFFICE. Testing is currently still very limited.  Our best hope is the setup of mobile testing centers in the near future. If you suspect you may have coronavirus, do not come into the office. Please call the department of health and they will direct your care.

What is the treatment for coronavirus?

  There is currently no vaccines or treatment for coronavirus. As with all viruses, it needs to run its course. Antibiotics do not help. 

How is the office responding to the pandemic?

  In efforts to keep coronavirus out of our office, you be asked screening questions prior to your appointment regarding your child's exposures and symptoms.  As noted above, our check in process will take place in your car to eliminate exposures in our waiting room.  Our staff will be wearing protective equipment with all visits.  We will be seeing only physicals in the morning and offer sick visits in the afternoon.  Lastly, we are offering telemedicine appointments to further eliminate potential sick exposures.  These visits will be suitable for some problems like ADD/ADHD follow ups, concussion evaluations, and rashes.  Please contact your insurance for coverage.

Physicals

image27

Prenatal Visits

Come for a visit before the baby arrives and our office manager will introduce you to the office and the providers.  These visits are scheduled Monday through Thursday and are available on certain evenings.

Newborn Visits

Newborns are initially seen within 2 days of discharge to check their weight.  They are seen at one week for their first physical.  Once your infant has regained their birth weight, we will see them at 1 month for their second physical. If your infant has not regained their birth weight, we will continue to see them until they reach that goal. This second weight check visit is especially important for first time breast feeding infants in whom quantifying adequate intake is difficult. 


Please remember to add your newborn to your insurance policy as soon as possible.

Infants and Toddlers Visits

Infants and toddler are seen every 2-3 months to assess their growth and development.  These visits are a chance to ask questions regarding your child's health and discuss what to expect to come. In addition to getting vaccines, children will have photoscreening of eyes for amblyopia and fluoride application of teeth to prevent cavities.

School Age Children and Adolescent Visits

All children 2 and older are seen EVERY YEAR. Yearly physicals are important to detect any abnormalities and ensure your child is growing well. In addition, hearing and vision screens are done at the 5 year physical to assess for issues prior to kindergarten. Adolescents will be screened for depression starting at 11 years old. 

Sports Physicals

PIAA forms must be dated after June 1 of the participation year. Please schedule your child’s appointment early to ensure that they do not miss practice. If your child has sustained a recent injury or concussion, please bring a letter from their specialist clearing them of the injury. If a specialist clearance letter is not available, your child may have limited clearance. Sports physicals are subjected to a $50 fee if not done with the annual physical.

Driver's License Exams

Driver’s license physicals are needed if your child had their last physical greater than 6 months from their 16th birthday. It is subjected to a $50 fee.  If your child is being seen for their physical, the form is completed free of charge. Forms must be signed in front of the provider and a vision screen is required. Please bring the form AND your child (with their glasses).  Since form completion requires face time with a provider, a $20 charge will be assessed.

Policies

Vaccine Policy

Red Lion Pediatrics follows the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC.  We have some patients who prefer to receive 2 shots at a time, but all patients are required to vaccinate on schedule.  Please understand that we have patients who may be immunocompromised who cannot be immunized. To ensure their health and the health of newborns, we will not accept patients who refuse mandatory immunizations. Vaccines are safe and effective at keeping children healthy.  If there is a difference of opinion, our practice is not a good fit for your family.  Patients behind on shots who transfer to our practice are expected to catch up according the AAP and CDC guidelines.

For more information on vaccines and safety, please check out AAP or CDC websites.  Also CHOP Vaccine Education Center has excellent information on this topic.
