Patient and Family Notice
Your health is important, and our patients’ safety is our top priority. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed care without fear or concern. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all CDC guidelines very closely. Our team has had additional training to ensure our processes meet or exceed sanitation and sterilization standards of care, and we have elevated our infection control procedures in response to this time of global concern. You can visit our facility with confidence, knowing we are taking additional measures to pro- vide for the safety of our patients and our team:
- Elevated infection control standards include the thorough sterilization and disinfection of treatment rooms and instruments between each patient.
- Preemptive patient screening: appointment rescheduling for any patient experiencing symp- toms of an illness; in-office patient screening for symptoms such as prior to receiving treat- ment.
- Continued adherence to standard sterile healthcare environment protocols including hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment (e.g. gloves, masks), respiratory hygiene / cough etiquette, sterile instruments and devices, and clean and disinfected environmental surfaces and common areas.
- Installation of hand sanitization stations in waiting areas and frequent cleaning of high- touch common areas.
