Westmed Family Healthcare Patients

Update ON CORONAVIRUS

Dear Patient:

Westmed Family Healthcare is actively adapting to daily changes concerning COVID-19 from the CDC and The Colorado Dept. of Health.  We are open and here for your needs.

We have protocols in place for your safety as well as the safety of our staff.  Therefore, to alleviate the spread of COVID 19 we are supporting self-quarantine for patients at risk.  All routine and preventive visits for patients 60+ will be rescheduled to after June 1st

We are also converting all appropriate scheduled appointments to Televisits.  This means you will connect with your healthcare provider via your Healow app from the comfort of your home or office.

If you do not have Healow downloaded then please call the office for instructions.

Portal appointment scheduling is temporarily disabled at this time.  Please call us to schedule your appointment until further notice.

We are still here for you 24/7.  Our Saturday office hours are suspended until further notice.  Please call the office to connect with the on-call provider for after-hours care.

Public health recommendations to protect our communities

We understand these recommendations affect people’s lives. Colorado makes these recommendations in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our partner agencies based on the best and most recent information we have to protect the public.

For all Coloradans

Take everyday actions to protect yourself and those you love

There are effective ways to reduce the risk to yourself and the people you care about.

Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or use your inner elbow or sleeve.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay home if you’re sick, and keep your children home if they are sick.

Clean surfaces in your home, and personal items such as cell phones, using regular household products.

Be calm and prepared.

Schools

Please contact your school or district for information about current or potential school closures.

Travelers

Please follow CDC traveler guidelines when making travel decisions.

Things to remember

It is normal to be scared, distressed or angry when you hear about a disease outbreak, even when you are at a low risk of getting sick. Be careful not to turn fear and anger towards people who have become sick. Ask yourself: Would you think or do the same thing if this was a different infectious disease, like the flu? Does what I’m doing make people safer or does it create more fear or harm?

The risk of COVID-19 is not at all connected with race, ethnicity, or nationality. Blaming others will

Not help fight the illness. Seeking and sharing accurate information will.

How COVID-19 spreads

The disease most likely spreads the same way as similar respiratory illnesses.

Person-to-person contact:

To become sick, you have to be exposed to the virus. CDC defines exposure as being within 6 feet (2 meters) of someone with a confirmed infection for a prolonged period of time.

Exposure can occur through respiratory droplets -- when an infected person

Coughs or sneezes, similar to how flu and other respiratory viruses spread.

Infected surfaces or objects:

It may be possible to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or possibly your eyes.

For these reasons, people at increased risk of infection are:

People who have been to areas where widespread community transmission is occurring.

People who had direct close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Symptoms and severity

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Illness can be severe and require hospitalization, but most individuals recover by

Resting, drinking plenty of liquids, and taking pain and fever-reducing medications.

If you are sick, it is important to call ahead before going to see a doctor or emergency room to prevent the spread of the illness. Tell them your symptoms and that you suspect you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 or had recent travel to a place that is experiencing community spread.

Same Day appointments are not published online.

What to Expect From an EKG

To the untrained eye, an EKG is just a series of lines. But each line refers to important information corresponding to electrical signals from the heart. Doctors analyze these tiny signals to diagnose heart problems.
