Hello BPI Families,
We care deeply about the health and safety of our learners and staff. We also understand the importance of consistency for the learners and families that we serve.

We put our heads together to come up with a set of procedures that we believe will allow us to continue to deliver sessions during the coming weeks while our nation rides out this virus.

At this point we anticipate clinics being open and home sessions continuing. 

We are taking this day by day and will be in close communication with each of you if anything changes.

We know the stores have been crazy. We also know that not everyone can afford a month's worth of groceries, more less get out of the house easily if they are caring for others. We would like to support all of you during these times. If you need anything, wipes, paper products, picky eater snacks, anything, please reach out to me at dbergh@bpiaba.com or call our front desk staff at (888)308-3728.

Sincerely,
Everyone at BPI
COVID-19 Health & Safety Precautions


For Clinic Clients:

We are minimizing all traffic into our clinics. Here is the plan for temporary drop off and pick up procedures:

  • Please remain in your car as staff will come to you. 
  • Staff will:
  • Ask a series of questions regarding the health of the learner and anyone else in your home.
  • Take the learner's temperature

  • If the learner or anyone in the learner's home has displayed any of these symptoms in the past 24 hours, session is cancelled and learner is not eligible to enter the clinic:
  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath

  • If the learner and family appear healthy, staff will:
  • Bring learner into the clinic
  • Wash their own hands
  • Wash the learner’s hands

During Session:

  • If a learner begins to exhibit symptoms during therapy:
  • Learner will be segregated from rest of learner's and staff.
  • Parent/caregiver will be called for immediate pick up.
  • If parent refused to pick up, we will call appropriate alternative transport to ensure safety of all other learner's and staff.
Pick up:

  • At the end of day, staff will ensure that the learner’s hands are washed.

  • Parents/caregivers should attempt to park as close as possible to clinic entrance. Staff will be looking for their car and walk the learner out to the vehicle. The staff member should assist the learner into the car, give parent/caregiver brief summary of the learner’s day.  

How parents/ guardians can help:

  • Please keep us informed of status of anyone in home, if anyone exhibits fever, or cough or shortness of breath.
