Dr. Kevin Rod, our medical director of TPC, said, “Building on more than 18 years of experience in providing care for complex health conditions, our multi-disciplinary team of health care providers have launched the Post COVID-19 Community Care Program. Our health systems nationally have bravely fought the acute phase of this pandemic and now we need to be ready for the chronic complications of it. Our goal is to assist provincial health systems and specially hospitals by providing care for these patients in our network of community clinics. Preparedness and wellness education for health maintenance of affected and non affected members of our society are embedded in our program.”
Toronto Poly Clinic COVID-19 Policy
At Toronto Poly Clinic, the health and safety of our partners, patients and staff is our top priority. Our clinic remains operational, on reduced hours, but we continue to provide a clean, safe and sanitized environment for patients.
As a result of the recent spread of the Novel Coronavirus in Canada, we ask that patients who are experiencing flu-like symptoms, including fever and acute respiratory illness, to please alert our staff of your condition.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and recently travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days since the onset of your illness, or have had contact with a person who has the above travel history and is experiencing illness we ask that you refrain from visiting the clinic and instead contact your primary health physician or public health official.
Your safety is our priority.
Common signs of infection include fever, extreme tiredness, respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, kidney failure, and even death.
If you or any individual who is exhibiting these symptoms, it is recommended by Public Health Agency of Canada to self isolate and/or contact public health officials for testing.
Our clinic is providing an online Telemedicine option to assist with all interactions (not just COVID-19).
Recommendations to prevent infection spread include performing hand hygiene (either use of alcohol-based hand rub or hand washing with soap and water), respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette (e.g,. covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, using tissues to contact respiratory secretions). We also strongly encourage physical distancing at this time to protect your health and those around you.
During this stressful time, TPC extends our sincere thanks to our valued patients for their cooperation and understanding. We strongly encourage everyone to be careful and take all precautions for you and your family and to stay safe.
