Essential Healthcare Service Statement
As we continue to respond to the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, the safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. We understand that new information surrounding the changing landscape of our everyday routines has many feeling concerned. We also understand that no clear guidance seems to be coming from any level of government.
As we navigate this situation, Morgan Smith Chiropractic PC is relying on guidance from our state government, the city of San Francisco, national and local chiropractic associations, and healthcare organizations to direct our actions. We are checking updates from the appropriate authorities on a daily basis. Our current stance around patient care is based on the following documents and statements:
- International Chiropractors Association – views chiropractic care as an essential healthcare service that can be used by patients with a wide array of health conditions.
- CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) – considers chiropractors to be part of the essential Healthcare infrastructure.
- New Mexico Department of Health – We are closely following current business guideline.
We are closely monitoring recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health departments. We pledge to communicate if our position needs to be modified as the COVID-19 circumstances develop.
- Between appointments Dr. Smith wipes down all equipment that was and surfaces that were touched with alcohol and disinfecting wipes. He also wipes down the door knobs and washes his hands before and after each visit.
- Dr. Smith will be masked for all appointments and asks that all clients, vaccinated and un-vaccinated alike, also wear a mask.
- To maximize air flow a window is kept open at all times in the treatment room, a fan is kept running to help circulate air, and a HEPA filter is kept running at full capacity.
We will abide by any recommendations from the city, state, and federal gov. in regards to recommended closures.
We recommend patients follow guidelines issued by the CDC, and if you are feeling unwell, please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.
