Outpatient Safety Information

Following the guidance of the CDC Guidelines and the state of Rhode Island, the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network has started a phased re-opening of services, beginning with the most time sensitive cases. We want to offer you the care you need and assure you that today – as always – your safety is our top priority.


EXCEPTIONAL SAFETY

Patient safety has always been at the heart of our mission – and now more than ever we continue to engage in vigilant prevention measures to reduce the risk of any infection.

SCREENING

Anyone who enters a Spaulding Rehabilitation Network facility will be asked some simple symptom screening questions upon entry. We will be asking patients these specific screening questions while making appointments as well as when you arrive at our center.

MASKS

Everyone in our facilities, both staff and patients, will be wearing hospital grade masks to help  protect against the spread of COVID-19. Everyone is provided a mask upon entry and asked to wear it throughout their visit. Be prepared to store your own mask.

HAND HYGIENE

Anyone entering our buildings will be asked to sanitize their hands. Hand sanitizer stations are also available throughout our buildings.

CLEANING

We are cleaning in between patients and also “high touch” areas throughout the center repeatedly during the day.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Everyone should practice good physical distancing – keeping at least 6 feet apart from others. We have made changes to patient flow, waiting rooms and common areas to encourage this separation.

PATIENT VISITOR POLICY

Our waiting rooms will be minimized—either you will wait in your car and be called when to come in or sent directly to a private treatment room. Do not come early for your appointment unless told to do so. Do not bring any extra items into our center for your appointment. We are not allowing any visitors in the center at this time — anyone accompanying you will need to wait outside our center. For more information please contact your center directly, or email spauldinginfo@Kentri.org.
