Preparation and Prevention

UPDATED 05/11/2020

Dear Pediatric Possibilities Families,

Currently, we are planning to resume limited occupational therapy sessions in the clinic over the next several weeks. Similar to how our state is moving in gradual phases, Pediatric Possibilities will gradually move toward clinic-based therapy in stages. 

We will take clinic-based sessions requests into account, but we may not be able to immediately accommodate all of these requests to maintain the health and safety of our clients and staff.  As we move through these stages of reopening the clinic, we ask for your patience in order to accommodate as many schedules and needs as possible.

Outlined below are Pediatric Possibilities’s procedures/policies for preventative measures.  These procedures/policies are guided by the State of N.C. and CDC recommendations.

Preparation and Prevention

  • Pediatric Possibilities will take each employee's temperature daily and screen each employee for symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, exposure, etc.
  • We will take each child's temperature using a no-touch thermometer at the beginning of each session and screen each child for symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, exposure, etc.
  • The therapist will take each child to wash their hands prior to each session.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in all clinic areas.
  • We will encourage each child not to touch their face and will encourage good hygiene during each session.
  • To assist with social distancing, there will be only 1-2 clients in each clinic at a time.  
  • We will have curbside drop off for your child; all family members will wait in the car until your therapist comes to the car to get your child.
  • Waiting room area will remain closed.
  • All therapy areas will be cleaned in between each OT session and at the end of each day.
  • Therapy supplies that cannot be thoroughly cleaned in between each use (rice bins, play-doh, clouds, pillows, etc) will be removed. You may be asked to bring in an individual supply for your child if needed.
  • Feeding sessions will continue to be completed through telehealth at this time.
  • All staff will wear masks.  
  • Children are encouraged to wear a mask but it is not required. 
  • During a session if we notice any symptoms of cough, fever, or other signs of not feeling well, we will end the session at that time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
