We are excited to invite you to Fix for in-person treatments. We have been hard at work anticipating needs, following guidelines as they’ve become available, and have been implementing new policies to make sure that everyone’s experience at Fix is a safe one.
These are some of the changes we’ve implemented:
- Installed glass partitions at our reception desks to allow for safe interactions and physical distancing.
- Placed floor stickers at reception to make it easy to see where to stand to respect physical distancing.
- Built in buffers between all appointments and reduced appointments to allow for thorough cleaning between patients as well as decreased flow in clinic.
- Rearranged our reception areas to accommodate 2 meters of physical spacing.
- Reupholstered all clinic chairs with medical grade vinyl to allow for thorough cleaning.
- We’ve streamlined the clinics to allow for thorough cleaning – no clutter here!
- Set up hand sanitizer stations at both reception areas for our guests.
- Common areas will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.
- We’ve reviewed our policies and cleaning procedures together so we are a unified team.
- All staff will self-check their own health before coming to work and will stay home if unwell.
- Our therapists will continue to offer Telehealth (virtual) appointments for those who would prefer to stay home. It’s easy to use, we promise!
- We’re keeping up-to-date with recommendations and guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer, WSBC, BCCDC and your practitioner’s respective colleges and making appropriate changes in response.
- We’re using contactless payment and email for receipts rather than paper to limit contact.
We are asking for your support with our following clinic COVID policy:
- You must call us to cancel your appointment (at no charge) if: you are experiencing fever, cough or any flu/cold-like symptoms or are feeling unwell; you have been in close contact with someone experiencing these symptoms in the last 14 days; or if you have travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days.
- Please come on time for your appointment – no more than 5 minutes early.
- Please come to your appointment on your own. Anyone accompanying you will be asked to wait outside until your appointment has finished. Please make arrangements for childcare, as no additional people will be permitted to accompany patients into the clinic.
- Please sanitize your hands upon arrival at the clinic. Please refrain from touching your face. If you need to cough or sneeze, please do so in a tissue or in your sleeve at the elbow, and sanitize your hands immediately after.
- Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the clinic and come prepared with or wearing the clothing necessary for treatment.
- We have a mandatory surgical mask policy for both patients and practitioners. We will be asking all patients to wear surgical masks while in clinic, both in the reception area as well as in treatment rooms. If you have a surgical mask, you can bring it with you or one will be provided to you. If you are unable to wear a mask, please call our reception team prior to your appointment.
To allow maximum safe social distancing for our team and our patients:
- Please respect physical distancing of 2 meters.
- For contactless payment, please add a credit card to your account. We are still pleased to offer direct insurance billing, but will use your card to cover any uncovered amounts.
- We are no longer accepting cash or cheques.
- Book your appointments online or give us a call to help you out if our reception team is helping other patients.
We appreciate your patience and understanding in these challenging times. Thank you! We’re in this together!
