COVID Progress – Vaccine Time

COVID Progress – Vaccine Time

We continue to make progress in keeping Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute a safe place to get pain relief for those concerned about Covid-19 risks. Our in-office safety protocols continue to be some of the best in Palm Beach County. In addition to using surgical-grade masks, screening and temperature checking everyone who enters the building, and scrubbing down every room between patients, we recently took additional steps to ensure your safety:

We installed UV light systems into all of air handlers, and keep them running continuously during office hours. The air movement and UV light make it difficult for any viruses to survive recirculation and keep the rooms full of fresh clean air.

Additionally, most of our staff have now received their first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine. We are grateful for the people at Moderna for developing the vaccine, the staff at Palms West Hospital administering the shots to area healthcare workers, and all of the officials who helped distribute the vaccine. No one experienced any serious side effects and all are looking forward to getting a second shot in 4 weeks. The event was very well organized and no one waited more than an hour. In addition to helping protect the staff at Palm Beach Spine and Diagnostic Institute, it also helps us ensure that even patients most concerned about Covid-19 can get safe pain relief.

General Reopening – Aseptic Safety Policies Strictly Followed

General Reopening – Aseptic Safety Policies Strictly Followed

After a few weeks reserved for the patients most urgently needing treatment (with limited openings), we are now offering services to all patients requiring care. The safety of our patients and staff are our primary concern. As such, we will continue to monitor and follow CDC and government standards and recommendations. We are still running the strict protocols established in our limited reopening:

  • All patients and staff are pre-screened.
  • Thorough disinfection of surfaces prior to each patient arrival.
  • Touchless thermometers used on all building entrants.
  • All patients and staff will wear masks at all times in the building.
  • Strictly limited number of patients in the building at a time.

If you are in need of care to treat pain or an injury, please please contact us and we will slot you in as soon as possible. Please understand that it may take longer than usual as our restrictive safety protocols limit our capacity.

Here is the procedure for appointments:

  1. Don’t walk in. Wait in your car in our parking lot.
  2. Call us to let us know you’re here and a member of our staff will come out to greet you.

To not be able to move or get out of bed for about 3 years... it took everything I love. The staff at Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute gave me a lot of hope. It took a few weeks and I started to feel better. It was miraculous. I danced... hiked ... doing kung-fu again ... it's definitely worth it. You can't put a price on feeling good. You cannot put a price on your health.
