At Little Spurs, we are working hard to ensure the safety of our patients and staff everyday. Our number one priority is the safety of our patients and staff, so we have implemented the following protocols to address COVID-19:
- Little Spurs will offer COVID-19 testing beginning Thursday, June 25, 2020.
- We now offer telemedicine visits from 7am-10 pm Monday-Saturday (8am-10pm on Sunday).
- $0 copay or $60 private pay fee
- If a patient comes into the clinic for a visit, they and all members of their family are REQUIRED to wear a face mask (unless the patient is under 2 years old). The face mask must cover both the nose and mouth. All Little Spurs employees are also required to wear a mask during all patient interactions.
- Every morning, each staff member is screened for fever and respiratory symptoms. If they or a member of their family have either, they are sent home to self-quarantine until they are deemed safe to return to work by our Chief Medical Officer.
- We encourage patients to wait in their car and we will contact them when it is their turn to be seen to reduce time spent in the waiting room. Our online check-in system is also available to reduce time spent in clinic.
- We have rearranged chairs in the waiting room are spread in clusters of 2 or 3 at least 6 feet apart to minimize patient to patient contact.
- We have removed books and magazines from the waiting room and patient rooms.
- Patients at risk of COVID-19 will be asked to wait outside of the clinic and our providers will screen them by phone.
- We have always been diligent with our decontamination and cleaning procedures. We will continue to ensure that high touch surfaces (door handles, door knobs, countertops, tablets, clipboards, patient rooms, etc.) are regularly cleaned and decontaminated throughout each shift.
If you develop a fever, cough and/or shortness of breath it’s important to seek immediate medical attention by calling your medical provider. Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care has 12 locations in San Antonio and one in Dallas. We are open 9am-9pm Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm Saturday, 10am-6pm Sunday. Walk-in or check-in online now!
