COVID-19 Update

At Great Basin Orthopaedics, the health and safety of our patients and our staff members is our highest priority. We are continuing to see patients, and we are taking strict precautionary measures under actions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to protect all those who enter and leave our office. We are up-to-date with all appropriate sources to ensure the highest level of health and safety. We will continue to monitor the situation as things evolve and communicate all changes and updates to make certain you have peace of mind.

As part of our precautions, we ask that you please give us a call to reschedule your upcoming appointment if you or a member of your household are experiencing any of the following:

  • A cough or respiratory illness, as well as a fever of 100.5˚F or higher
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Recently travelled by aircraft, or travelled from an at-risk area
  • Exposed to a person diagnosed with COVID-19

Patients will be subject to Pre-Screening Protocols:

  • You will be asked at time of scheduling if you or a member of your household are experiencing any of the above symptoms/circumstances.
  • When arriving for your scheduled appointment, you will be asked to complete and sign a screening intake form confirming that you are NOT experiencing any of the above symptoms/circumstances.
  • At Check-In: you will have the option to wait in your vehicle upon arrival for your scheduled appointment. You may provide the Front Desk staff the best phone number to contact you at the time of your arrival. A staff member will call to notify you when your exam room is ready.
  • Patients are asked to come to their appointment alone, unless assistance from a caregiver is necessary. If a caregiver is needed, we require that only one individual accompany the patient.

We're using the following measures to ensure a safe and clean environment for our patients and staff members:

  • Universal Glove Precautions: Physicians and staff members are required to wear medical-grade gloves during each patient exam. They will also be required to thoroughly wash their hands before and after putting on gloves. Gloves will be disposed of at the immediate completion of each patient exam.
  • Surfaces Subjected to Rigorous Cleaning: Sanitizing wipes and other deep cleaning products will be used to clean ALL surfaces within the practice including, but not limited to, entrances, the waiting room, check in/check out areas, exam rooms, Medical Assistant/Physician stations, Physical Therapy tables and equipment, and office spaces.
  • Strict Hygiene Practices: Patients and staff members are asked to utilize hand sanitizer provided in each room of the practice. Frequent hand washing techniques (soap and water for a total of 20 seconds) are also enforced.

We send our sincere thanks to you for following these precautions, and we are proud to continue caring for our patients in need during this challenging time. We wish you health and safety.
