Important Information for Volunteers
We appreciate all you do to help us provide quality care for our patients. For your safety, all volunteers should touch base with staff prior to coming to the clinic, particularly if you have traveled within the past 14 days.
CVIM continues to work diligently to establish policies and procedures for handling patients during this time. First and foremost, we want to gauge the comfort level of our physicians and dentists to continue seeing patients. Please continue to look for information from CVIM, and contact Ray Nungesser or Kristi Mattzela with questions or concerns.
Schedules are being evaluated to prioritize when patients will be seen. Nurses are reviewing patient treatment plans and rescheduling those patients who can be postponed for 1-2 months. Patients who need to be seen now will continue on their current schedule. We are communicating with patients to request that those with fever, respiratory symptoms and travel to affected areas (either domestic or international) reschedule their appointments and not come into the clinic.
We will be asking you to order refills for patients who need routine medications. A 3-month supply of medications will be given to all patients with the exception of a few behavioral health patients that our team recommends getting a shorter supply.
