Information on COVID-19
A message to our patients about coronavirus (COVID-19)
At Rocky Mountain Foot and Ankle, we are focused on providing the best care for our patients by providing high-quality healthcare services when you need them. We do remain open and will continue to see patients for health care needs. If you have any questions about upcoming appointments, surgeries, services, or questions, please feel free to call our clinic office at (801) 261-1391 or visit our website
The safety of our patients and visitors remains our top priority, so we are:
Putting CDC recommended protocols in place to ensure the highest level of prepared coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention.
Ensuring we have necessary supplies and equipment, and appropriate staffing.
Conducting appropriate screening questions.
Limiting the amount of patients and visitors in our waiting room and exam rooms.
Should I still come to my appointment? Yes, we are open and seeing all previously scheduled patients, as well as accepting new patients. Our patients' on-going healthcare needs remain our top priority. If changes in your appointment or upcoming surgery need to occur, we will contact you. What about visitors at my appointments? During this time, we ask that you limit accompanying visitors and attend your appointment alone, if possible. We understand that many of our patients require a visitor to assist them, as many of our patients are currently using crutches or other assistive devices. In that case we ask that only a single visitor be allowed with you at your appointment, if necessary. Another exception would be a single caregiver for a minor patient, or for a patient with a disability or impairment warranting assistance.
Draper Office Considerations
In the Draper office, you will be screened on the first floor of the hospital by the hospital staff. The hospital is currently not allowing any visitors under the age of 18 into the building. Unless, the child is a patient being seen in our clinic, they will not allow anybody under 18 in the building. Again, we encourage you, if possible to come alone to your appointment.
Murray Office Considerations
In our Murray office, we are asking staff, as well as our patients, to be mindful to number of people in the waiting room. If you would like to wait in your car or in the building lobby rather than the waiting room, please call our staff and we can make those arrangements.
Many affiliated hospitals have instituted strict limitations; please verify these policies prior to your appointment. What are the symptoms? Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:
Shortness of breath
If I have symptoms from this list; should I attend my upcoming appointment? If you have a fever, new cough (within the last two weeks), shortness of breath, or flu-like symptoms, please contact your primary care provider immediately. After you have consulted with your primary care physician, please call our office for guidance on your upcoming appointment. What can I do to protect myself and others? Public health officials recommend the following steps to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including influenza and COVID-19:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Stay home when you are sick
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands often, using either soap and water or alcohol-based hand gel for at least 20 seconds
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
