Great Lakes Physiotherapy is comprised of Brooklin Rehabilitation, Brock Physiotherapy and Baywood Physiotherapy and has a mission to provide quality rehabilitative care while respecting the health of our patients, staff and the general public.
We take this responsibility very seriously and have been closely monitoring the COVID 19 situation while acting in accordance with recommendations from our government and the various College that govern our respective practitioners. At this time, in order to maintain the highest level of safety, Great Lakes Physiotherapy is only providing treatment to clients who qualify as essential or emergency treatment. Having been placed on the recently published “essential services” list, our physiotherapists are allowed to conduct new patients assessments provided they successfully complete the COVID 19 Screening Tool as seen below.
- Has the patient received public health or medical advice to self-monitor or self-isolate?
- Is the patient presenting with fever and/or new onset of cough or difficulty breathing?
- Has the person returned from travel outside of Canada in the 14 days before the onset of illness?
Did the person have close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)?
Did the person have close contact with a person with acute respiratory illness who returned from travel outside of Canada within 14 days prior to their illness onset?
- If YES to Question 1 – patient screened POSITIVE
- If YES to Question 2 and YES to any part of Question 3 – patient screened POSITIVE
- If YES to
Question 2 and NO to all of Question 3 –
patient screened NEGATIVE
(stop screening and document response)
- If NO to Question 1 and 2, and YES to any part of Question 3 – patient screened NEGATIVE (stop screening and document response
If you qualify for an assessment your physiotherapist will determine your suitability for ongoing treatment as laid out by our College. In the event that you do not qualify for ongoing treatment, you will be placed on an appropriate exercise program, all questions regarding your injury answered and future appointments will be arranged when we return to normal service. In the meantime you are welcome to contact the assessing therapist with any questions or exercise upgrades as your injury progresses.
To our current clients we apologize for the disruption in your care and encourage you to contact our office with any questions pertaining to your injury or exercise upgraded is required. We promise to have your therapist contact you upon request, and ask you follow this site for current changes to our status.
Your safe care is our priority and we are taking all necessary steps to ensure safe practice at this time. We are continuing to assist within the community at this time and ask that if you know of anyone requiring “doorstep drop off” of groceries on pharmaceuticals please provide them with our number, we would be happy to help.
