We are OPEN!
We would like to update you on our service provision during this unprecedented time. We want you to know that we are still open for community OT and Case Management services and we are doing everything we can to support and reassure our vulnerable clients during this uncertain time.
We are well set up to work from home and have been operating as a remote team since the beginning of Wise OT Solutions in 2011 and will continue to do so.
I’m acutely aware that our role as health professionals in the community is imperative to our clients receiving adequate care and services and we have adapted our practices to ensure the safety of our clients and staff members.
We are closely monitoring all updates from NSW health and have implemented the following changes:
We are checking in with all our clients to ensure they have adequate continence and medicinal supplies.
We have informed them of more accessible shopping hours for Woolworths and Coles.
Home Visits will continue to be completed but modified where possible to include social distancing guidelines.
We are asking clients with any flu like symptoms to postpone their appointments.
No visits will be completed for clients who are in self isolation.
We have always been stringent on our infection control procedures and continue to frequently sanitise and wash our hands in the community as per NSW Health hand hygiene guidelines.
We have implemented a pre-visit risk assessment checklist that’s completed over the phone to identify any at-risk clients.
Case conferences are being completed via teleconference where feasible.
We will continue to host our weekly online team meetings and re-assess news from NSW Health on a daily basis.
All our team members have completed the "Covid-19 infection control training".
