Is the patient likely to have coronavirus? Situation analysis
Prepare the necessary equipment, at a minimum:
On greeting the patient, ask them if they have recently experienced any of the following symptoms:
If they have recently been in contact with anyone who may have coronavirus.
If the answer is yes, assess the situation and consider postponing the session for 2 weeks.
If the patient is already wearing a mask, ask them not to touch the mask for the remainder of the physiotherapy session.
If you do not want to change socks, you can use overshoes.
Entering the patient’s home barefoot is not recommended.
