As COVID-19 continues to shape our lives, we at Cats Only are taking precautions to help ensure the safety of our staff and our clients we are privileged to serve. Below is a list of added health and safety protocols our hospital has implemented, especially as we enter the flu season during this global pandemic:
Curbside services are available
Simply call from your cell phone in our parking lot and someone will be out shortly to carry your feline family member into our hospital. We will take a history, discuss the doctor’s examination findings, and give our recommendations over the phone. Picking up medications, preventatives or diets? Simple call us in the parking lot, make a payment over the phone or though our website, and someone will carry your products to you in your car.
For those clients that wish to enter the hospital, face masks are required at all times while you are in the hospital. Proper face mask usage is required which means the mask must cover the mouth and nose.
Anyone who wishes to enter the hospital will have their temperature taken with our thermal infrared scanner at the front desk upon entering the hospital. The scannner is used to screen individuals for a temperature above 100.4 degrees fareinheit as recommended by the CDC. All of our employees are also scanned at the beginning of their shift as well.
Once you enter the hospital, clients should expect to enter an examination room to promote social distancing. We use examination rooms for you to fill out surgery or dental authorizations forms, sign medical plans, and go over discharge instructions. Plastic screens are at the front desk to promote this concept.
Disinfecting & Sanitizing
Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk. Each room is thoroughly disinfected after each appointment.
Common Sense If you are feeling unwell, please let us know and we’ll be happy to reschedule your appointment. If you answer “Yes” to any othe the following questions, please postpone your appointment:
