Hinsdale Pediatrics – Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information

Hinsdale Pediatric Associates is committed to the health and safety of our patients and their families.  The best way for us to all stay safe is to take precautions and follow CDC recommendations.  Maintain strict social isolation.  Monitor for signs of illness and quarantine if you have cold or fever symptoms. 

Remember:

  1. Don’t Panic.

  2. Stay informed

  3. Take precautions – wash hands, disinfect, social isolation

Do you or your child have any of the following clinical symptoms: Fever >100.4, Cough, Difficulty Breathing, Congestion or Cold symptoms?

  1. Note that you are STILL more likely to be infected with Influenza or another virus, NOT CORONAVIRUS.

  2. Maintain supportive care at home in strict quarantine.

  3. Rest, hydrate, and use Tylenol or ibuprofen for fevers.

  4. Call Hinsdale Pediatrics for advice on medical support.

  5. If your child needs to be evaluated by a physician, please call Hinsdale Pediatrics right away.

If you answer YES to any of the following questions AND have fever or cold symptoms, please contact us and we will help coordinate when you should get evaluated. 

  1. Have you have travelled internationally, specifically to China, Hong Kong, Iran, Europe, Japan, or South Korea?

  2. Did you have close contact with any person with diagnosed or suspected case of Coronavirus (COVID 19)?

  3. Are you concerned that you or your child have Coronavirus?

TELEMEDICINEWe are now offering telemedicine sick and ADHD visits for all our patients when appropriate.  This will allow families to remain at home while obtaining medical evaluation and treatment for their child’s medical illness.  Not all illnesses are appropriate for telemedicine. 

DRIVE-UP VISITS:  We are now offering sick visits in the parking lot from your car.  These will be scheduled depending on the child’s age and symptoms if appropriate.  This allows families to limit social contact and for patients who are not comfortable coming into the office.  We will do strep and flu swabs when necessary in your car.

Call our office and our triage nurse will help you schedule the most appropriate visit for your child’s illness.

SHELTER-IN-PLACE ORDER:  With the stay-at-home order in effect, families should still seek appropriate medical treatment including sick visits and well visits requiring timely vaccines.

WELL EXAMSFollowing American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations, we will perform well exams ONLY for children age newborn to 5 years at this time.  It is essential to perform childhood vaccines on schedule.    

SICK VISITSAll sick visit requests will be triaged by our phone nurse.  She will help schedule the appropriate visit:

  1. Sick visit in office

  2. Drive-up visit in the parking lot

  3. Virtual telemedicine visit scheduled from home.

PATIENT SAFETY:  In order to ensure the safety of our patients, we have implemented some changes in our in-office appointments:

  1. Separate sick visit and well exam timings:

        9:00 – 11:30 – well visits

        12:30 – 5:00pm – sick visits and follow up visits

  1. Limit family members – When possible one parent and no siblings should attend the visits.

  2. We are cleaning the rooms after every patient and having thorough cleaning overnight before our well exams.

  3. All staff is wearing masks and goggles to protect our patients and ourselves.

Hinsdale Pediatric Associates doctors and staff are here to support your family’s needs.  Please call us with any questions.
