Safety at the Clinic
At Pleasant Wellness, we do our best to keep you and our staff safe and healthy. When you arrive for treatment, you will be led directly into the treatment room. The bed, handles, and other contact-areas are sanitized between every patient visit. Sheets and pillows are replaced. Our staff wear masks at all times. Practitioners sanitize their hands between every treatment, and immediately before contact with the patient. Acupuncture needles are single-use and are disposed of in a biohazard container after treatment. Overall, we have taken every step to minimize the risk of infection at our clinic.
In order to protect the health of everyone at the clinic, there are some rules you must follow:
1) Please DO NOT come to your appointment if you have displayed any cold or flu symptoms in the past 14 days, have traveled recently, or have other symptoms that are associated with COVID-19. This applies if you have a symptomatic household member. Call us to reschedule or discuss other treatment options.
2) Each patient must sign a COVID-19 waiver and acknowledgement form before treatment regarding the risks of being exposed to COVID-19 and the repercussions of the virus on one’s health.
3) You will be taken to the treatment room directly. Waiting in the lobby is not permitted.
4) Please come in WEARING A MASK. If you do not have one, we will provide one for free. Care providers will wear masks at all times while in this office.
5) Feel free to use alcohol hand sanitizer provide throughout the office.
6) After using the bathroom, wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap under running water. Use paper towels to open the doorknobs after hand washing.
7) Please DO NOT bring unnecessary items into the office with you, i.e., purses, bags, water bottles, iPads, etc. Fewer items means a lower risk of contamination for both you and our staff.
Acupuncture and COVID-19
Acupuncture does not kill viruses. We do NOT treat COVID-19 or any COVID-19 symptoms. If you are experiencing an illness that you believe may be COVID-19, quarantine yourself and warn people whom you have been in close contact with. If you have trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest, an inability to stay awake, or other symptoms of oxygen deprivation, call 911 or your local emergency facility.
