Come on in
In this time of adversity, the STBJ family continues to make your care our number one priority. Our goal is to remain fully staffed during this trying time and take the orthopaedic burden off the local Hospitals and ERs. If you have an orthopaedic injury, consider coming to our walk-in Priority Care clinic, instead of flooding the emergency rooms. We are fully equipped with our in-house digital x-ray, casting, labs, and medical equipment to help you through almost any orthopaedic trauma.
Our mission continues to be that of striving for practice excellence in health care and outstanding patient care. This is considered a hallmark of South Texas Bone & Joint.
We continue to make the well-being and health of our team members and patients our priority. On an ongoing basis to address the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have implemented the following actions:
All clinic, lab and physical therapy areas are being disinfected multiple times daily with EPA approved products including door handles, exam rooms, equipment, restrooms, seating areas and all high touch surfaces throughout the office.
We require on a continuous basis and have further emphasized a policy requiring every team member who is ill not report to work, but keep us apprised of their condition.
Our offices continue to emphasize personal hygiene measures with all team members, including frequent and thorough hand-washing, as well as recurrent use of hand sanitizers provided throughout the office.
We kindly ask a limit of one (1) visitor accompany each patient to the clinic area and will restrict anyone under 18, excluding patients, from entering the clinic. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding. We also request all patients/visitors wear a mask, scarf, or bandana, etc. as a precaution during visits.
We are limiting the number of patients within our lobbies and have rearranged seating to distance patients until called into the clinic.
We are asking screening questions to better assess a patient’s medical status. If any patient is not feeling well or has symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc., we reschedule the appointment.
As a secondary screening measure, we provide fever and questionnaire screening as patients enter all lobbies. A temperature of greater than 99 degrees Fahrenheit will be considered elevated and a patient will be kindly asked to reschedule the appointment.
We remain in communication with federal, local and state officials, as well as the CDC, and are closely monitoring developments related to COVID–19
IMPORTANT: If you have COVID-19 or think you may have been exposed, please contact us in advance before coming in and please contact the Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District at 361-826-7200 and a representative will give you instructions.
