We have instituted new protocols in our practice to insure the health and safety of our staff and our patients.
Toward this end, we have also added glass barriers on each of the treatment rooms and we enclosed the business office in glass. We have invested in cold fogging equipment to enable us to clear the rooms of all airborne contaminates, and we use this to fog each area following every patient visit. We completely disinfect and sterilize all surface areas also. We have changed our scheduling to make certain that patients do not have to cross paths with other patients during their appointments. We protect our entire team with personal protective equipment (P.P.E.). This includes face masks, face shields, eye protection, head covers, shoe covers, gloves, and full-length isolation gowns. We screen all staff members and patients every day to check for symptoms and to take their temperatures. We reschedule anyone who is not in good health and recommend a consultation with a physician. Our patients understand the reason for these improved precautions and have expressed appreciation for our strict procedures.
