Onsite Safety Protocols
For patients coming into our clinic, we know there may be a sense of uncertainty regarding safety and operations amid the coronavirus crisis. We assure you that we will be putting additional safety measures in place. Please be advised of the following updates to our operations:
1) Patients will be required to wear masks while on site.
In compliance with state and local ordinances, all individuals are required to wear face masks while on the premises. All masks and facial protection covers must cover both mouth and nose in order to enter the facility.
Our offices will not provide a face mask – each patient is responsible for obtaining his or her own face mask. If a patient cannot secure a medical-grade face mask, the following are acceptable face protection options: any bandana, scarf, or handmade mask that fully covers the mouth and nose.
2) We are limiting the number of guests in the clinic
To maintain proper social distancing while simultaneously minimizing the number of people onsite within the clinic, we are only allowing scheduled patients(s) to be permitted within the facility. All patient(s) visiting the facility for bloodwork, imaging scans, or monitoring must attend without any guests present. Children are not permitted on site. We apologize for any inconvenience; however, we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients and staff by limiting the number of individuals in our space.
3) All patients will be screened for temperature and health at entry.
To protect our patients, staff, and families, every individual entering the facility will be required to pass a temperature screening, and will be screened for COVID-19 related symptoms.
4) Cycle Disruption Policy
If an individual demonstrates symptoms of illness during a treatment cycle, or if the individual is mid-cycle and tests positive for COVID-19, the cycle will be canceled or suspended.
If this cancellation or suspension occurs prior to retrieval, we will issue a credit balance in accordance with services rendered during the cycle. Credit balances will be established on a case-by-case basis. We are not able to extend credit toward products or services provided by third parties (products or services provided by third parties include but not limited to medications, phlebotomy, anesthesia, genetic testing, tissue storage fees, etc).
