At this time, for the sake of health and safety, Blue Lotus Therapy Services LLC is offering sessions ONLY via a HIPAA-compliant Telehealth service (provided by therapist) to minimize exposure to the virus for all parties involved in treatment.
For clients who are only willing to engage in face-to-face meetings at this time, Blue Lotus Therapy Services LLC will offer names of other therapists or practices that may be meeting with clients face-to-face.
When Blue Lotus Therapy Services LLC does once again begin to meet with clients in a face-to-face setting, both therapist and anyone involved in therapy treatment are expected to follow healthy and safety recommendations set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
These recommendations include, but are not limited to:
Maintaining social distancing in the lobby by asking clients to stay in their vehicle, or 6+ feet apart from others while waiting outside the office building, then calling to inform the therapist of the client's arrival.
Clients must wash their hands upon entering the building. Therapist will also provide hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol for client's use.
Therapist will conduct a health screening questionnaire and take the client's temperature using a touchless thermometer upon entering the office space. Both the answers to the questions as well as the temperature will be documented. If the client has a fever or does not meet health and safety recommendations with their answers on the questionnaire, therapist reserves the right to ask the client to leave the premises and reschedule their therapy appointment for another day.
Both therapist and client will wear a mask while in the office space. If a client does not have a mask, therapist will provide one for the client's use.
Physical contact (i.e. hand shakes) is not permitted.
Additionally, therapist will conduct a thorough cleaning before and after the arrival of each client to the office space. The office will be professionally cleaned on a weekly basis.
If you have any questions about how Blue Lotus Therapy Services LLC is addressing in-office health and safety related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please reach out to Sarah Harrier, MS LMFT, to address these concerns.
