We follow established infection control procedures, such as hand cleanliness, providing tissues and no-touch receptacles to throw away old tissues, and offering facemasks to coughing patients, to assist in preventing the spread of all respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. We follow standard cleaning and disinfection procedures, such as pre-washing surfaces with cleansers and water before applying an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, and sterilizing all tools and equipment. According to FDA and CDC recommendations. We also use new facemasks and gloves for each patient.
While our office already follows these standard precautions, there are several commonsense recommendations we have added to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
