PSV's COVID-19 Action Plan

March 20, 2020 | By Justin Jones

Patients and Families,

We would like to share a few extremely important PSV updates as part of our ongoing COVID-19 action plan:

  • COVID-19 Patient Screenings: We are testing patients in the lobby (Hamaker/CCBD) and at the clinic level (Ashburn) for COVID-19 markers (cough, fever, etc.) prior to the visit.  Please allow a few additional minutes for this added safety measure.  If the patient or visitor has or had within the last three days a fever and cough, please contact us to reschedule the appointment. Reminder, please only have two adults (parents/guardians) present at the time of visit whenever possible.
  • Telemedicine: Telemedicine visits are now being offered PSV-wide to patients with non-urgent appointments/follow-ups. Patients are being called and asked to switch their non-urgent in-person visit to a telemedicine visit or reschedule to a later date out of an abundance of caution and safety for our staff and patients/families. Patients will be emailed a link to download our telemedicine platform, Zoom (secure and HIPAA compliant) on their computer/laptop, tablet, or smartphone device. From there patients must complete the consent form (Note:  Patients are required to reside in or be physically present in the state of Virginia at the time of the virtual visit) and then they will be placed into a virtual waiting room until the doctor joins the visit.
  • Satellite Clinic Closures: Effective today, Friday, March 20th, PSV’s Fair Oaks, Manassas, and Woodbridge clinics will be temporarily closed. We will reassess the possibility of reopening in two weeks.    

Thank you in advance for your understanding, cooperation, and flexibility during this time of crisis. We must remember to take all precautions to keep ourselves, our families, coworkers, and communities safe.
