NEA Baptist turns Urgent Care into "Corona Clinic"
NEA Baptist has dedicated one of their urgent care clinics to screening individuals for covid-19.
The clinic is open to people e who have symptoms of the virus.
“We have opened a COVID-19 Clinic and that is on Windover Drive at our Windover Clinic. It is open Monday through Friday from 8 A.M. to five p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 8 A.M. to noon."
While the Windover clinic is normally open to all NEA Baptist patients, with doctors and nurses treating a number of various ailments that has changed.
The clinic is now temporarily only serving people who currently do not have a primary care physician and who are showing signs of having COVID-19.
The clinic is also welcoming people with or without health insurance.
Jones says that they request anyone who symptoms of covid-19 that plan on going to the clinic to call a head, so staff is aware and prepared before the patient arrives.
“You would get screened there. It is a possibility they could get tested if the provider deems it necessary. So obviously we are wanting to test the most crucial cases and the ones we feel are most likely to have that. A lot of our patients if they’re not showing symptoms even if you do get a test, we’re asking you to self-quarantine.”
