Dear patients and visitors,
We are staying on top of updates and recommendations directed from the CDC and State Department of Health to limit the spread of COVID-19.
WE ARE OPEN and seeing patients in clinic. We are also beginning to perform surgery, as Governor Holcomb of Indiana issued an executive order to resume elective surgeries as of 11:59 pm on Sunday, April 26, given that facilities have enough personal protective equipment.
Below are the current MCJR guidelines to maintain a safe and healthy office environment. Please do your individual part to keep yourself and others safe.
Patient appointment procedures
- Daily patient/visitor screening table in force to take temperature, issue PPE, and ask COVID-19 screening questions prior to entrance
- Only patients are allowed in the office to maintain a restricted hourly volume in the office, compliant with social distancing. Exceptions are made for minors and/or impaired mental cognition.
- Patients are required to wear a mask, subject to change due to ongoing supply
- Check-in/Check-out protective shield in place
- Common areas will be closed (coffee bar)
- Schedule has been limited to one doctor, and minimal support staff in the office per day
- Staff will monitor common areas/seating and adjust to meet social distancing requirements as needed
- Beginning May 4: Low-risk elective outpatient surgeries resume
- Inpatient procedures are still to be determined by our hospital partners
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your surgery, please call our office at 317-455-1064.
For your peace of mind, know that our employees will be wearing face masks, disinfecting high touch areas frequently, and maintaining a six-foot distance when possible. Should any employee test positive for COVID-19, he or she will remain quarantined at home for a minimum of 10 asymptomatic days.
If you are showing any symptoms for flu, respiratory illness, or symptoms of COVID-19 including a cough, fever, or shortness of breath, please reschedule your appointment.
We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may bring to you, but we are working hard to ensure the safety and health of our patients and community. In the midst of uncertainty, we pray that you feel peace.
The MCJR team
