We take the Corona Virus Pandemic very seriously. We have taken the following measures and precautions to ensure your health and safety as well as the health and safety of our staff. Employees are required to check their temperatures upon entering the building and report any elevated temperature to management. Employees are strongly encouraged to wear masks and gloves when providing direct patient care/services. Patients are offered masks to wear as long as supplies allow. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk, hallways, exam rooms and waiting areas. We have adjusted our schedule to limit the number of people in the building at one time and allow for social distancing (at least 6 feet apart) of patients in all areas. Strict handwashing is expected by all employees after patient care or contact, after removal or manipulation of face masks and at least every hour. All hard surfaces in exam rooms are wiped down with AF3 disinfecting wipes after each patient and Lysol disinfectant spray will be used on all soft surfaces between patients and at the end of the day. AF3 wipes are also available at the front desk for patients to use at their discretion. All chairs and surfaces in the waiting areas will be wiped down with AF3 disinfecting wipes at the end of the day or when they become soiled.
Prescreening of patients for COVID-19 will be done via telephone the day before their appointment.
All patients will be screened upon entry to the building for fever and symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with a temperature at or above 99.6 will be rescheduled to a future date. Patients will be asked to monitor their temperature and if 100.4 or above contact the Augusta University COVID-19 Hotline for screening and possibly testing.
