The Midwestern University Clinics are working toward resuming patient care in accordance with Federal and state executive orders and health service agency recommendations. Midwestern University has committed to providing its faculty and student practitioners with the personal protective equipment (PPE) needed to provide safe care to patients, as well as preparing all patient spaces for maximum protection.
As we gradually expand our clinical services to include more in-person care, please be assured that University staff are working within strict guidelines to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission in all clinical contexts. Telehealth options are available for a variety of consulting and caregiving conditions, and our caring staff will work with you to determine if in-person care is required and what steps should be taken to maximize your safety in that event.
We have added new precautions to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission, including:
- Limits to the number of people on campus
- Carefully monitored entrance points
- Waiting areas arranged for social distancing
- Sterilization and deep cleaning procedures for all Clinic spaces
- Screening of all patients for symptoms and possible COVID-19 exposure before entering our buildings
- Mask requirements for caregivers, patients, and staff
