COVID-19 Information

March 12, 2020

Roswell Pediatric Center is closely monitoring the rapidly changing status of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  We continue to follow the CDC’s most up-to-date recommendations for protecting and managing your family in our office.  Your safety and health are our primary concern. 

We have taken a number of steps to decrease your risk of COVID-19 exposure in our offices:

  • Use of separate well and sick exam rooms in the office.  Next week, we will also start changing our office schedules to provide separate office hours for well and sick appointments. We will plan for well visits, well consults, and non-respiratory/nonfebrile sick visits in each office in the mornings and will schedule febrile and other respiratory patients who need to be seen in the afternoons.  You may be called to adjust a scheduled appointment to reduce your risk.
     
  • Addition of telemedicine services.  By using telemedicine, providers can keep many patients out of the office and determine whether children need further assessment in the office or at the hospital.  We are hoping to make this available next week.
     
  • Frequent sanitizing of our offices.  As always, we also perform handwashing before and after each patient.
     
  • Screening for patients at risk for novel Coronavirus on the phone, on our website for self-scheduled sick appointments, and at check-in. Please visit our Symptom Checker on our website here that contains information on COVID-19 If your sick child has a mask, we ask that he or she wear it when entering the office.  Otherwise, we will provide a mask to the patient at the front desk if appropriate. We suggest limiting the number of family members that accompany your sick child to the office.

Screening for novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) risk:

  • If your child develops fever and respiratory symptoms (cough or shortness of breath), has been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19 within 14 days of symptom onset, or has traveled to an area of sustained community spread within 14 days, please CALL our office.   We will determine whether your child can be managed at home or will require evaluation in our office.  NOTE:  We do not perform COVID-19 testing in our office. 
     
  • If your sick child is scheduled to come into our office, we ask that you call the office when you arrive.  We may ask that you stay in your car until your appointment.

How can you reduce COVID-19 exposure?

  • Follow universal precautions: frequent handwashing, keep hands off face, regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces, cover coughs and sneezes, stay home if sick.
     
  • Avoid crowded areas
     
  • Avoid other sick people
     
  • Stay informed.
