DETROIT (PRWEB) March 30, 2020
In response to recent health events with the COVID-19 outbreak, Women’s Excellence in Obstetrics and Gynecology has modified and enhanced office protocols to help avoid the spread of disease to patients and the community. These protocols include new cleaning and maintenance procedures, limiting guests within the offices, staff and patient education resources, and virtual care visits.
In addition to standard daily and weekly cleaning functions within the offices, Women’s Excellence has initiated extensive daily cleaning protocols to help avoid the spread of germs. Women’s Excellence has also designated a specialty cleaning and maintenance crew for deep-cleaning tasks. This means more detailed and frequent cleaning of heavy trafficked areas, entrances, customer service areas, bathrooms, waiting rooms, and employee break rooms.
In conjunction with recommendations from the CDC, Women’s Excellence has implemented restrictions on visitors within the offices for the next 30 days. To avoid the spread of COVID-19, visitors will not be allowed into our offices.
“We understand the importance of support from loved ones during women’s health and obstetrics visits,” said Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, President of Women’s Excellence. “This temporary adjustment to our visitor protocol will help keep our patients and staff safe from the spread of infection.
Virtual Care Visits
As part of their dedication to healthcare, Woman’s Excellence now offers Specialty Virtual Care visits for women’s health which will keep patients safe and give them the care they need all at the same time.
In order to schedule a Specialty Virtual Care (telemedicine) appointment, patients will need access to a computer or mobile device with video and microphone capabilities. Although many visits can be done solely through Specialty Virtual Care, some visits will require in office visits for blood draws and imaging with options for patient convenience.
As this situation unfolds, Women’s Excellence will continue to update staff and the community on new health and safety protocols and any updates with patient visits.
“Our goal is to come together as a team and a community, and support each other,” said Zaidan. “There are many resources to keep the public informed on new details and we will make it a priority to share this information with our community. As the new coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to evolve, Beaumont Health of Michigan has launched a local Coronavirus Hotline (248-551-7000) on ways to avoid spreading the disease and the current standing of coronavirus in our community.”
