COVID-19 Policy

Dear Patient,

The Coronavirus pandemic has been very challenging for everyone.Our staff would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and concern for all of our patients and hoping all are well and staying safe. At Excellent Physical Therapy/RWJ Somerset Physical Therapy, we are very concerned about our patients’ safety, and the safety of our staff.

We are pleased to let you know that we will be expanding our hours to allow more patients to resume their Physical Therapy treatment. However, we will be expanding our hours and services in a very deliberate and measured way to assure everyone’s safety. Please call us if you need to come in for Physical Therapy.

We are following CDC and RWJ Barnabas screening guidelines including:

  • Verbal screening of all persons entering the building
  • Thermometer temperature check of all persons entering the building
  • Masks are mandatory!
  • Hand sanitizer for all persons entering the building

Additional safety policies implemented:

  • We have reduced staff to decrease the total number of people in the building at any given time
  • We are practicing “social distancing” with our staff and with the patients as recommended by the CDC
  • We are using only hospital-grade cleaners, Sani-Wipes, on all surfaces and equipment (see cleaning policy below)
  • We are screening all patients when they arrive for any recent travel, Covid-19 contact and/or illnesses
  • We are excluding visitors/vendors, and we ask that patient escorts either drop off the patient or wait in the car if possible

We ask that you join in our safety measures by taking part in the following activities:

  • Please let our staff know if you have any symptoms of illness
  • Practice your own social distancing and comply with our policies
  • We ask that you please wash your hands before and after your treatment session in our handicap rest room
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering the facility
  • Please don’t hesitate to ask any of our staff to clean something for you if you have any concerns
  • Please exit the building promptly after your treatments

Your health and safety are important to us.
