medical, therapeutic, and rehabilitation services
During these unprecedented times, we are here for you.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the capacity of health systems around the world to continue the delivery of essential health services. The Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County is among the health systems being challenged to maintain preventive and curative services, especially for our most vulnerable populations – people living with disabilities and especially those with chronic conditions.
Since the beginning of this pandemic, the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County coordinated efforts to maintain access to essential health services through the use of telemedicine.
The following services continue via telemedicine:
- Primary Care
- Psychiatry and Mental Health Support
- Therapeutic Services of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy
If you are a Primary Care Patient or Clinic Outpatient interested in signing up to receive the COVID-19 Vaccination, please notify the front desk staff or contact the Medical Office at 516-377-2111. *
Please note, all patients that do not receive Primary Care from CP Nassau will require clearance to receive the vaccine by their PCP. Documentation must be submitted to the Medical Department prior to vaccination.
*You will be contacted with further details once the vaccine supply has been received.
For some of our patients, there was a need to be seen in-person for a procedure or assessment as quickly as possible. Guided by the Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County has taken a number of steps, in addition to our standard rigorous infection control measures, as we cautiously reopen our Clinic to ensure our facility remains a safe place for you to receive care. We currently offer the following on-site services:
For on-site appointments…
- All patients and visitors are screened for COVID-19 symptoms. You will be contacted by your clinic scheduler prior to an appointment to ask whether you are experiencing any symptoms. When you arrive for your appointment, you and anyone with you will complete a Health Assessment, including a temperature check. Our staff are also screened for COVID-19 symptoms each day.
- We are pleased to report that the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County was one of the first agencies to install a new I-Wave system to cleanse the air, E-Spray electrostatic sprayers and Sterilizer UV floor units. Areas such as waiting rooms, lobbies and restrooms are cleaned frequently with special attention to frequently touched surfaces including doorknobs, armrests and handrail. Exam rooms are fully cleaned and disinfected between each patient. We have made special arrangements to support social distancing. You may see markers on the floors to remind you to social distance and have rearranged furniture in some waiting areas to create more space between patients, and are scheduling appointments to ensure that fewer people are in our clinics at any given time.
All services are by appointments only.
