What we’re doing to keep you safe
We want to assure you we’re going beyond industry cleanliness and safety standards to introduce the most rigorous COVID-SAFE Care protocols currently available. To protect the health of all our patients, we’ve introduced a variety of appropriate measures tailored to each setting.
Rigorous Cleaning Measures
We’ve implemented rigorous COVID-SAFE cleaning measures, including frequent deep cleaning, disinfection of high-touch areas and sterilization of all exam rooms and equipment following each patient visit.
Masks and Sanitization Dispensers
All patients, visitors and staff are required to wear masks. Patients who don’t have their own will be provided one. Hand sanitizing dispensers are available to ensure good hand hygiene.
Designated Patient Treatment Areas
For everyone’s safety, non-COVID-19 patients and COVID-19 patients will each have their own designated treatment areas.
Patients, visitors and staff are asked to maintain a distance of at least six feet from one another, unless giving or receiving direct patient care. This policy may also include adjusted seating layouts, spacing signs and elevator use capacity limits.
As patients, visitors and employees enter the building, they will be required to undergo a no-contact temperature check and screening for other symptoms and possible COVID-19 exposure.
