Terms and conditions
COVID - 19
The commencement of 2022 has bought a new set of challenges to our practice and we continue to navigate the impact this has on our service provision. As a result the following policies/processes have been updated. It is important that clients of Ready OT are familiar with the following to keep clinicians, our colleagues, and our clients safe.
The below is as directed by the Department of Health and Human Services, Coronavirus Vic Health and OT Australia.
Allied health professionals are fully vaccinated and will continue to receive booster shots which are mandatory
Should clients choose not to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, which is against government health advise, Ready OT is only able to provide services via telehealth.
If a COVID restriction prevents a face-to-face appointment it will automatically become a telehealth appointment (phone or video).
If COVID 19 prevents you from attending your appointment within 24 hours of your appointment time, (either telehealth or face to face) our cancellation policy (as per service agreement) will apply.
FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS
For all in person (either in clients home or in clinic) we request that you adhere to the following:
Please wear a clean face mask
Please check in using QR code
Maintain 1.5m distance from others
Maintain hand hygiene (utilise wash basins, hand sanitiser and no shaking hands)
Please do not attend the clinic or conduct your face-to-face session at home if:
You are you experiencing any cold/flu symptoms (i.e.: sore throat, runny nose, cough, fever, headaches)
