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.
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.
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.
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.
Anyone entering our buildings will be asked to sanitize their hands. Hand sanitizer stations are also available throughout our buildings.
We are cleaning in between patients and also “high touch” areas throughout the center repeatedly during the day.
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.
COVID-19 Rehabilitation Program
We're here to help.
For many affected with COVID-19, returning home and resuming life may be harder than anticipated. Many patients who are recovering from COVID-19 will continue to face physical, cognitive, or mental health problems. To address these recovery needs, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network is dedicated to providing specialized care for patients who are recovering or were hospitalized for COVID-19.
