What it's like inside OHSU's ICU, overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients

Today the FDA gave full approval for the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine. Watch this story about the current condition of our neighborhood OHSU ICU Unit. Enough is enough!

For the first time, cameras were allowed into OHSU's medical ICU. What we saw was sobering.

Due to the newest CDC guidelines, we are modifying our Covid-19 Protocol at our Portland and Salem offices. Our staff has been fully vaccinated. We will continue to require facemasks in our facility as we see fragile populations who are, as yet unable to get vaccinated. We are continuing to disinfect between patients and have new air purification systems in both offices. We have created an outside space in our Portland office if you prefer to be seen outside. We are so excited that the pandemic is coming to an end. Thank you for all your support!

Last year Steve reached out to Portland Art Alliance to chat about our building's north facing wall. We wanted it brighter! Yay! Steve was able to secure a partial grant to have a beautiful, custom designed, full size mural celebrating the themes: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Here is the artist, Dominatah starting on the wall this morning. So excited!!

November Covid-19 Announcement

On Friday November 13, Oregon governor Kate Brown announced a 4 week freeze of services due to surges in Covid-19 infections. A Step Forward will remain open during this time but we are, more than ever, taking steps to keep our patients and staff safe. We have our "patio room" outside with a heater. Our one fitting room has new air purification and exhaust fans. We will also see patients at their cars for extra safety. When you call to check in our staff will direct you as to the safest way to be seen. Thanks to all our patients for their patience during this time ;)

Let's Stay Safe,
Megan

Just Keep Swimming

Covid-19 Update March 30, 2020

I want to thank everybody for their understanding and support during our temporary shut down for the Covid-19 pandemic. Last week we were able to ship out over 25 devices to people and interact with them via Facetime or Skype to check fits virtually. It was surprisingly easy. I have also been able to adjust a few devices, from our parking lot, when absolutely necessary, taking extreme Social Distancing Precautions. So thank you.
Lets be patient and good to each other. We will get through this together.
Please enjoy a few calming seconds of our office fish tank. Those little guys have no idea....
