YOUR SAFETY IS OUR MAIN CONCERN
We are taking precautions to keep everyone safe and protected from possible exposure to COVID-19 during appointments, surgeries, and procedures at our hospitals and clinics. We are confident we can provide safe, essential care. The well-being of our patients, visitors, and staff remains our top priority.
WEAR A FACE MASK
It is mandatory to wear a face mask over your nose and mouth to maximize everybody’s safety.
The CDC recommends that you wear a cloth face mask when you're around people who don't live with you and in public settings when social distancing is difficult.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
USE HAND SANITIZER
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Hand sanitizer destroys the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) for a prolonged period
DO NOT DELAY YOUR NEEDED CARE
It is important to not delay care like well checks and other preventive appointments, and you should continue to take your medicine as prescribed by your doctor. Delaying care can lead to complications and advanced stages of the disease.
EVERYONE IS SCREENED
Every person is screened for symptoms before entering our facilities. These screenings may take place at the time of scheduling, on pre-visit calls, and when you arrive at our clinics. Onsite screenings require all patients, visitors, and team members to sanitize their hands, answer questions about potential symptoms, do temperature checks, and wearing a mask. This process will help protect everyone from the spread of infection.
We perform enhanced cleaning between every patient. We clean exam rooms and equipment with CDC-approved equipments. We are also performing additional cleanings daily.
Our visitor restrictions remain in place to limit the number of people in our facilities. Due to COVID-19, only minor patients, patients with limited mobility, or those with extenuating circumstances may have guests at clinic appointments. Guests are limited to one per patient. You may be expected to wait in your vehicle as there is more limited seating in the waiting area in order to maintain safe social distancing.
We have installed additional hand sanitizing stations and signage to encourage hand hygiene for all staff, patients, and visitors.
FACE MASKS ARE MANDATORY
All providers, staff, patients, and visitors must wear face masks at all times when in our clinics. This requirement protects everyone by helping to stop the spread of the virus. Please note that refusing to wear a mask is considered disruptive behavior. If you do not have a face mask, one will be provided for you. Please learn more about how wearing face masks helps to protect our community.
TELEMEDICINE IS AVAILABLE
Telemedicine is available for your comfort and safety.
Your appointment may be rescheduled as a phone or a video visit. These virtual appointments have proven to be an effective way for our providers to address many patients’ health needs.
There is a HIPAA-compliant link that we can examine you through a secure video conference.
You can arrange this through our appointment desk.
