The “new normal” is still a long way from happening, but AFC Urgent Care Tampa can help ensure you are safe, healthy, and protected as you get back to your job.
Pre-Employment COVID-19 Testing
Patients must book all forms of COVID-19 Testing by calling our urgent care center for an appointment.
The volume of current calls for COVID-19 testing requires our team to schedule your appointment to maintain a safe testing environment.
Employees that need to return to work ASAP can get tested for COVID-19 at AFC Tampa. Just call us for an appointment and we’ll help you get the test you need to return back to work.
COVID-19 Testing available for patients:
1.Reverse Transcriptase-PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) testing—this involves taking a swab from a SYMPTOMATIC patient’s nose or throat to determine if they have an ACTIVE coronavirus-19 infection. The exact sensitivity (ability to correctly identify those with the illness — true positive rate) and specificity (ability to correctly identify those who don’t have the illness—true negative rate) is not known.
2.Serology testing (Antibody Testing)-this involves taking a small sample of blood and testing it for antibodies against the COVID-19 virus. A positive test would indicate that a patient had been infected and has formed antibodies against the COVID-19. The current test offered at AFC will detect the IgG antibody against COVID-19. A positive IgG test may allow you to return to your normal activities without the worry of re-contracting COVID-19. The sensitivity and specificity of the antibody test is not yet known.
Depending on your field and position, a company you are applying to work at may require you to undergo a pre-employment physical as part of your hiring process to make sure you are physically fit enough to perform the duties required. In addition to making sure they are hiring someone who can do the job, pre-employment physicals allow the company to know beforehand that they will be able to maintain the same standards of productivity while keeping the rest of their employees safe, which will keep occupational healthcare costs low.
What happens during a pre-employment physical?
Pre-employment physicals can be customized to meet the needs of your business. One size fits all does not apply to healthcare, and we will work with your team to make sure each new hire meets your specific needs. With a laboratory onsite, we can process any blood or drug tests within a few days, rather than the weeks it could take from a company using offsite facilities. Between our staff of highly trained medical professionals and our top-of-the-line equipment, you will know that a physical done at AFC Urgent Care Tampa will be done correctly, quickly and within start and local health and fitness requirements. A pre-employment physical includes the following:
- Physical examination
- Vision and hearing tests
- Blood pressure screening
- Respiratory and pulmonary function testing
- Drug and alcohol screening
