Safety Precautions for Patients and Staff

At Advanced Specialty Care we have both been monitoring recommendations and proactively implementing protective measures for our patients and our staff. Below is an outline of measures we have deployed for your safety:

  1. Masks / face coverings are required to be worn at all times by patients, visitors and staff. Face masks with an external valve are not permitted unless they are covered with a second non-valved face covering or mask.
  2. On arrival all patients and related visitors are screened for symptoms and contacts. Those who do not meet criteria will be attended to through our telehealth physician service.
  3. All visitors over the age of 2 who pass criteria are required to wear a mask upon entry to our office.
  4. Universal precautions are firmly mandated in our office so all clinical staff and physicians when in the exam room with a patient will be wearing masks and have cleaned their hands prior to encountering the patients.
  5. All exam rooms are cleaned thoroughly between patient visits with appropriate disinfectants as well as all the hard surfaces in our waiting room regularly.
  6. All equipment used in patient care is carefully discarded or properly sterilized between uses.
  7. Any employees who show any signs of respiratory illness and/or fever have been sent home with their return predicated on negative Coronavirus 19 testing confirmed.
  8. We are deploying ‘social distancing’ in the office wherever we can for our staff and our patients.
  9. We are refraining from shaking hands in order to prevent the spread of germs.

We continue to do all that we can to care for our patients and, perhaps more importantly, do our part in serving the needs of our local healthcare community. Anything we can do to relieve some of the burden on primary care offices as well as the hospital and emergency room helps everyone.

We appreciate your cooperation.
