COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) Safety Measures

What is Barangaroo Clinic doing in response to Covid-19?

We know and understand that many people are feeling worried about the current world situation. It’s hard not to when you open social media, turn the news on, or tune into someone’s conversation. We’ve never experienced something like this before, so it’s okay to feel a bit anxious about it. 

At the present time, the Team at Barangaroo Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic will continue running as normal although we will  be taking some extra precautions. 

The health and safety of our team, our client community and their families is paramount in the midst of the current COVID-19 outbreak. BOSIC is keeping up to date with the latest information in regard to this matter.

In order to minimise the spread, BOSIC has and will continue to:

  • Disinfect equipment/surfaces regularly throughout (before and after), and in between clients

  • Increase daily cleaning procedures in all areas of the clinic

  • Treating therapists and clients are to wash or sanitise hands before and after treatment

  • Minimising contact – no high fives, hand shakes etc.

  • To ensure further safety we will try to minimise back to back consultations to maximise social distancing as your health is priority 

  • TELEHEALTH! It is a 1:1 online video consultation to continue to conquer your goals where we continue communicating from wherever you are (internationally, working from home etc.) Simultaneously we can review, implement or progress your rehabilitation program and management plan.

  • Have some of our administrative team work from home / remotely 

  • We are a low volume clinic, we have adjusted our practitioner timetables to reduce the volume of client’s in the clinic at any one time

How can you help?

  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth as this is how the virus can enter your body

  • Stay at home if you are sick or feeling unwell

  • Speaking to friends and family about hygiene, hand washing and minimising unnecessary contact

  • Cough or sneeze into a flexed elbow or tissue, dispose of the tissue and wash your hands

If you have further questions or concerns, please view the previous email about our updates in regards to COVID 19. 

Enough about the sad news, let’s finish with how you can stay active and healthy. As we have learnt previously your immune system is the body’s mechanism to fight invasions and stop you getting sick, So we suggest: 

  • Continue to eat healthy foods via a nutritious and balanced diet (vegetables)

  • Reduce the consumption of junk/fast foods

  • Stop smoking and reduce your alcohol consumption 

  • Regular EXERCISE (with social distancing), as we all know this helps boost your immune system 

The above we consider daily common sense, but the media fails to tell us how to try to live healthier.

Unfortunately things are going to get worse before they get better, but here at BOSIC we believe “The comeback is always better than the setback.” As long as we continue to practice active, healthy living and good hygiene it will not only boost your immune system but minimise the spreading of this virus.

We appreciate your cooperation on this matter and will keep you informed if we receive any further information from the Government and Department of Health as this is a fluid situation. If you have further questions, please feel free to call us at 8599 9811.
