COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is an important subject matter to all, notably those of us in the health delivery system. To update as many as possible we are providing our patients with more information.
We want to assure patients that we continue to follow all standard CDC guidelines for health care facilities which you can find in the following link:https://www.cdc.gov/infectioncontrol/pdf/guidelines/environmental-guidelines-P.pdf
With an even greater attention to detail, continued monitoring of sterilization techniques for equipment, and proper disposal of waste and disposable products, we continue to abide by long standing professional standards. The team is taking extra care to disinfect touched surfaces, counters, doorknobs, chairs, other common surfaces and utilize personal protection equipment in the form of masks and gloves. The sterilization procedures of the common areas are done three times a day.
As a team of health care provides, committed to our patient’s health, we have discussed the need to be prudent of symptoms of persistent cough and flu and to stay home if necessary. Likewise, we ask our patients to be cognizant of the same and we will work diligently to reschedule your appointments if necessary. We know several companies are allowing staff to work from home over the course of the next few weeks. Unlike an absolute quarantine we trust this should not preclude you from keeping scheduled appointments. We will continue to use a common sense approach and trust you will as well.
Preventing the spread of COVID-19 and any other virus such as the cold or flu can be easily done through common hygiene practices. The CDC provides a simple list of things you can do to protect yourself and others. With all of that, common sense, extra care in hygiene habits, washing of hands etc should be standard parts of everyone’s routine.
If you have questions regarding our practices protocols, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.
