Updates on COVID-19 from OrthoSport Victoria

New and Existing Patients

As COVID-19 continues to spread in our community, we would like to advise our existing and new patients of the following guidelines when making and attending for an appointment;

  • If you are unwell with symptoms of fever, cough, sneezing, headache or lethargy we suggest you cancel your appointment and reschedule when symptom free
  • If you have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 or you have recently returned from overseas travel you must isolate for 14 days and reschedule if symptom free

If you are well we ask that you;

  1. Fill in your patient registration form electronically before your initial or first appointment (this will have been emailed to you)
  2. Do not come to your appointment any earlier than 15 minutes prior and call upon arrival at the hospital to check that your surgeon is running on time
  3. Maintain a social distance of 2 metres from staff and other patients
  4. Wash your hands with the sanitizer provided before proceeding to the check- in desk
  5. Pay for your consultation using a credit card rather than cash

Currently we are endeavoring to structure many of our appointments via a teleconference facility such as Skype or Facetime. Please advise our reception staff if this option is possible for you.

Elective Surgery

Effective midnight 1/4/20 all elective surgery around Australia has been cancelled by the Federal Government unless your condition is classified as a Category 1 or urgent Category 2 procedure.

Category 1 procedures are for conditions that require treatment within 30 days and category 2, 90 days.

Many Orthopaedic procedures do not qualify as category 1 or 2 but please check with your surgeon directly as to whether your surgery is to proceed as planned.

 

Check here for future updates.

 

Please call on 9038 5200 if you have any queries.

Kind Regards,
The OrthoSport Victoria Team
