CORPUS CHRISTI – Driscoll Health System continues to maintain the same quality and quantity of care it provided since before the heightened awareness of COVID-19, while also taking measures to protect patients and family from the disease.
- Operating hours for all Driscoll locations remain the same.
- Appointments are being evaluated to see which ones must be conducted in person, and which ones could be conducted using telemedicine methods.
Telemedicine can include a telephone call between provider and patient, or the inclusion of video, to accomplish things like patient follow-up appointments or determining whether to continue with a prescribed medication.
In-person appointments will follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Rehabilitation Services, including Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy visits, may be appropriate for the telemedicine model.
