Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Notice to our patients:

At Inland Orthopaedic Surgery, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our number one priority. We want you to know we are taking every precaution to keep all of you and our community safe. As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread, we will continue to monitor the situation and update this page. 

Our clinics are open and are operating our normal hours.  For those patients requiring x-rays both our offices now have radiology within our suite so our Pullman office patients will no longer need to go to the hospital for their x-rays.  If you have an appointment and have been experiencing any cold/flu symptoms, please call us to reschedule your appointment. It is important that we work together to avoid the spread of contagious germs.

Some of our providers are now offering virtual (telemedicine) visits for those patients that it is deemed appropriate to do so.  Please contact our office by calling one of the offices, 509-332-2828 Pullman Office, 208-883-2828 Moscow Office or through our web page link if you would like to inquire about this possibility.

To ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff, Inland Orthopaedic Surgery is limiting the number of support people that accompany a patient to only necessary caregivers.  We are limiting the number of patients we have in the waiting room so after you check-in you may be asked to wait in your vehicle and we will give you a call.  Priority for those in waiting room will be for those with ambulatory issues.

We understand it is a challenging time for all of us and we thank you so much for your understanding and support. We look forward to continuing to meet your orthopedic care needs.

Thank you for your continued understanding and trusting us for your orthopedic care.

Information about COVID-19

COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person and between people in close contact with one another. The virus is thought to spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Your primary care provider can give you instructions for seeking care, including options for testing, while minimizing the risk of exposing others.

How to protect yourself

You can protect yourself from COVID-19 infection the same ways you protect against the common cold or seasonal flu.

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
  • Before eating
  • When your hands are visibly soiled
  • After you have used the bathroom, been in public or blown your nose, coughed or sneezed
  • Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, and throw your used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wear a face mask, only if you are sick or are caring for someone who is sick.
  • Put some distance between yourself and others, especially if:
    • Someone near you is sick
    • You are at a higher risk of serious illness
    • COVID-19 is spreading in your communities
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you feel sick

There are several things you should do if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, and have a fever or respiratory illness (cough or shortness of breath):

  • Stay home if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you aren’t showing any symptoms.
  • Avoid public areas and transportation.
  • Call your health care provider first and before coming into the doctor’s office or emergency department.
  • Avoid coming to the emergency department, unless you have a health emergency and/or you have been advised by your health care provider to do so. This helps prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19 infection.
  • Separate yourself from other people and animals as much as possible, while you are sick.
  • Wear a face mask, if you are sick.
  • Monitor yourself for fever, coughing and shortness of breath.
  • Take the same precautions you would if you had the common cold or flu (e.g., wash your hands frequently).

For more guidance, please visit the CDC website.
