Hoping to get advice on whether or not my outpatient PT practice warrant some “whistleblowing”: each therapist sees 10-20 patients a day making any distancing impossible. These numbers are not being limited. Our work stations are close together. Patients are screened for symptoms/fever... most of the time. Some PTs are allowing patients who are “breathing hard” on machines to take off their masks (!!!). We work under the name of a major medical center and are not taking this seriously

I tried to make a report to our compliance office, but struggled to articulate my concerns and worry about anonymity. We are following inpatient hospital protocols, but are in a totally different environment. Our doctors are working remotely, but we are in the office every day, endangering our patients and ourselves with our lax interpretation of distancing. I want to do more than wring my hands, but feel powerless 😩

I am in the same situation. I was told that we don’t have to worry about numbers of patients in the gym because we are wearing masks and we are also deemed essential. I found this statement very hard to believe. We have patients ranging from 15-87yo coming into our clinic. We screen for temperature each time, but doesn’t seem like it’s being taken seriously anymore. It’s very frustrating. I’d love to hear if anyone has insight on this.

I would say that this is unfortunately not the exception. I see social distancing etc broken all the time

I’m in outpatient ortho PT. my clinic had a patient call in and refuse to wear a mask stating he has a medical condition that warrants him to not wear a mask. He was screaming on the phone at front desk that he wouldn’t follow our stupid policy and refused the option to do Telehealth. Our clinic policy is everyone entering the building has to wear a mask, temp checks, etc. The manager asks the evaluating PT if she feels comfortable treating him not wearing a mask. Rightfully so, the PT said no she doesn’t feel comfortable. End result, the patient is being seen by the department manager and allowed to disregard our policy of mask wear. Anyone else sensing that your safety and the safety of your patients are being compromised just to make money. I’m beginning to feel unsafe in my work environment because of others decisions. How do we bring this up without looking like the person who doesn’t want to work.
