Helping to Stop the Spread of COVID-19
The safety of our patients and staff is our priority. That’s why we’ve implemented the following precautions to help stop the spread of COVID-19:
- All patients and staff will be required to wear a face mask while in our offices. If a patient does not have a mask, one will be provided.
- Patients arriving at our offices will be screened for symptoms at the entrance of each facility and directed to the appropriate area to receive services.
- Sick patients will be separated and isolated from others in designated rooms. These rooms will be closed and disinfected after each use.
- Patients will be required to maintain a minimum of 6 feet from others. The number of patients in waiting rooms will be reduced to allow for adequate social distancing. If a waiting room reaches capacity, patients may be asked to wait in their vehicle until their appointment.
- Our staff will continue to thoroughly clean and disinfect all areas and surfaces throughout our facilities.
- Patients are encouraged to perform hand hygiene by washing their hands and using hand sanitizer which will be available throughout our offices.
- Telemedicine visits are also available for patients who prefer to receive care virtually. To make an appointment, patients should call their NHFHS medical office.
We’ve also implemented the following enhancements to sanitization and infection control in our offices:
