APA Notice to Families 3/15/2020
Greetings to our wonderful Asheville Pediatrics Families. Safety is the number one priority for us and we are implementing the following changes during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to see sick patients more efficiently and to minimize exposure to patients during routine well child visits or non-sick urgent visits, we will use separate entrances, staff, exam rooms and exits.
- Infants, children, and adolescents who are sick (fever, cough, congestion, GI complaints, etc) will continue to enter through our main entrance and check-in at the front desk.
- Patients being seen for well
For the purposes of everyone’s safety, if your child has FEVER AND COUGH AND TRAVEL outside of WNC, PLEASE CALL OUR NURSE LINE (828) 254-5326 for further assessment and instructions. Patients using our Drop-In service fitting these criteria will be asked to return to their car and to call our nurse line for immediate instructions. … Read full article
We continue to monitor the coronavirus situation. We monitor the CDC, and the NC and Buncombe Co DHHS communications, and we encourage you to stay up to date using similarly reliable sources. Fortunately for children, the severity of symptoms and risk of complications seems to be less than other age groups. Ways to prevent infection include:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water
Due to the worsening weather we’ve adjusted our hours. No morning drop-in hours tomorrow 2/21/20, will open at 9am. Please drive safely!
While we are still seeing a lot of winter illness, including flu, there is light at the end of the tunnel. While you should always contact our office if you are concerned about your child’s breathing, there are many things you can do at home to decrease the severity of cough (and maybe get a little more sleep!).
