The safety of our patients, families, caregivers and visitors is our top priority. This includes ensuring that we maintain a COVID-19 safe environment for everyone who enters our facility. We have implemented many processes to provide a safe environment for our patients, physicians, nurses and associates in response to COVID-19.
Every patient undergoing a procedure in the Center, must be tested for COVID-19 forty-eight to seventy-two hours (48-72) prior to their procedure. Please contact your physician for more information or a testing location. Upon arrival, all visitors are screened for COVID-19 before entering the facility through daily temperature, signs and symptoms checks.
Masks for all visitors
Everyone who enters our facility will be required to wear a mask. If you have a mask at home, please wear it to your visit. Otherwise, we will provide one for you and your visitor to wear.
Hand hygiene is always a priority for us. Hand sanitizer and handwashing stations are available throughout our facility.
We have removed frequently touched items such as magazines,
We have increased the cleaning frequency of patient rooms, public and common areas, restrooms, waiting areas and any commonly touched surfaces.
Strict infection control practices remain in place including cleaning and sterilization of the equipment, cleaning and disinfecting patient care areas and terminal cleaning at the end of each day.
Our disinfectants are effective in killing the virus that causes COVID-19 and other pathogens.
Personal protective equipment for associates
We have an adequate supply of PPE for all of our associates and physicians. This helps protect you and our team from COVID-19 transmission.
Enhanced patient safety policy
We are adhering to social distancing, and our lobby is marked, so you will know where to stand and sit. This will also be factored in throughout all phases of care during your stay. We prefer Visitors, Caregivers and Companions wait in their cars.
To reduce overall exposure, we are currently requesting your caregiver/escort arrive 2 hours after the start of your procedure.
Following safety protocols
We are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and appropriate state guidelines for performing COVID-19 safe surgeries.
We are committed to providing the highest level of healthcare for each of our patients and ensuring that you remain safe at all times.
Please feel free to reach out to us should you have any questions about your procedure.
Thank you for entrusting us with your care. We are privileged to serve you.
