We hope you and your family are staying healthy during these stressful and uncertain times. Spectrum Healthcare Partners will continue to ensure those who need care can safely obtain it and will work with patients to adjust care plans as needed. We will keep this page updated with clinic hours, safety updates, and other important information.
For everyone’s safety, we are limiting the number of people who enter the building. At this time, only patients with scheduled appointments will be allowed in our offices unless alternate arrangements are made in advance.
While we understand that the Maine CDC guidance has been updated, we still ask that all patients and visitors are required to wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth, even if you’ve been fully vaccinated. (You can do this with a cloth mask, or your own surgical mask. We have a limited supply of masks that we can provide while they last, but patients are strongly encouraged to bring their own covering. We do not allow scarfs, gators or bandanas to be used as a mask.)
What We’re Doing to Keep Patients & Staff Safe
- Providers and staff members are screened daily.
- Patients should self-screen themselves before entry into any Spectrum run facility. Screening questions and instructions are posted on all entry doors to the buildings.
- Pre-Operative COVID testing will be performed for all surgical patients, even if you are fully vaccinated. Your COVID test will be booked at the time that your surgery is scheduled. For more information, click here.
- In patient care settings, all staff wear masks and protective equipment as appropriate for the visit.
- Exam rooms, furniture, and commonly used items are frequently sanitized.
What You Can Do in the Meantime
- Check in with your provider to reschedule your appointment if you aren’t feeling well.
- Talk to your provider about whether a telemedicine visit might be right for you.
- Remember that our OrthoAccess clinics are open for orthopaedic injuries such as strains, sprains, and fractures.
- Continue to practice social distancing and frequent hand washing.
We ask that prior to a scheduled visit, you review the symptom checklist below:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste of smell
- Congestion or runny nose
