SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY
Children’s Physicians, Creighton continues to adhere to strict quality, safety and infection prevention protocols to ensure your family’s safety. To help prevent the spread of illness and keep our families safe, our waiting rooms will be closed during the flu clinics.
Children’s Physicians will continue to screen individuals before entering our offices. For well-visits, children with cough, shortness of breath, fever (over 100.4 degrees F), sore throat or loss of smell/taste will not be able to continue with the appointment. Please call your office ahead of time for guidance and to reschedule. For scheduled sick visits, we will provide additional directions when you check in.
In addition, Children’s Physicians requires every patient and their parent/guardian to wear a face mask while inside any of our offices. Families are welcome to bring their own cloth masks or non-health care grade masks from home. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to follow recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
