How Wildwood Pediatrics is Adapting to COVID-19

3.16.2020

WWP is adapting daily and taking all necessary precautions for continued care and assurance of our patients, their families and staff.


It is important to note that there is no COVID-19 testing in our office as of this time.


Our nurses and providers are triaging all sick calls.


We are asking that once you arrive to the office for your appointment, that you remain in your car and call into the office for further instruction (Essex 860-767-0168; Old Saybrook 860-388-4545).  You will be asked by phone to verify and update your health insurance information, and pay for your copay with a credit card.

 

For office visits, we ask that you make every effort to bring just the patient for the visit so to decrease the volume of people in the offices.  We understand that without schools and daycares open this may prove difficult.


We continually check, throughout the day, for updates from the CDC, state medical authorities, the Amercian Academy of Pediatrics and Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital


Doctors and Managers are now meeting daily to review any changes/updates.


The Doctors have suspended their morning rounds to the hospital, until further notice.


Staff will disinfect the entire offices three times a day,


Sick respiratory appointments and weekday Ped*I*Care appointments will be seen in the Old Saybrook Office in the afternoon and evening, respectively, and these rooms are disinfected between each visit.  As of now, our weekend hours on Saturday and Sunday will remain in Essex along with the same cleaning procedure.


Well visits, Newborn and Lactation Nurse appointments, consults and non-respiratory sick appointments will be seen in the Essex Office throughout the day, and in Old Saybrook during the morning hours.


Please refer to our "COVID-19" news article for further information and important links.

Again, we are making every effort to ensure the health of our patients, their families and our staff while still being available to the community.  We are confidant that being prudent in our approach is the correct path for continued healthiness.  (Please remember that we are open every day of the year except Thanksgivng and Christmas.)

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
