Arrangements for Covid-19 consultations

 

FACE to FACE

Preferable for children under 12 months and > 6 years

Please email Dr Liz on info@flourishpaediatrics.com.au if you would like to arrange a face to face

One parent and the child only unless discussed

Other ages to be discussed and will need to ensure child can be managed during consultation

 

Masks to be worn by children (if possible) and parents and Dr Liz

Pease note Mask to mask consults are not optimal with older children as non verbal cues are missed

Consultation uses social distancing in waiting area

Dr Liz sits behind the desk and child and preferably one parent in corner of waiting area

Sadly no Toys or books available

Older children do well with a device

 

If examination is required then it is limited and performed in consulting room

Dr Liz will use gloves and mask

 

All areas are sprayed down and cleaned after each patient

 

TELEHEALTH

 

Any age group, and allows the child to participate as needed and both parents as well

This can be done by phone or ZOOM

Patients will need to download the ZOOM app before the meeting

Dr Liz will send the link before the meeting

It has the advantage that we can use screen share for information etc and masks will not be needed

 

ALL PATIENTS

Scripts need to be emailed or faxed and then posted. S8 medication such as ADHD medication, Dr Liz needs to phone through details to pharmacy as well
