A Message from Silicon Valley Orthopaedics Regarding the Coronavirus
Greetings from all of us at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. As we are sure you’re aware, the safety and wellbeing of our patients, their family members and our staff is always our paramount concern, especially in this time of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This is a brief statement to explain how our medical professionals are observing the strictest practices and most up to date guidelines to ensure you get the best care in a timely manner with as little risk as possible. We are implementing a number of changes to ensure for your health and safety, as follows:
While cleanliness and sterility is always a top priority, we are increasing sanitation procedures and adding precautions to all areas of the clinic as follows:
- All communal surfaces including door knobs, chairs, counters, screens, keyboards will be wiped down between patients and other times throughout the day.
- All patients will be screened for symptoms and relevant travel history. Anyone who could be affected will not be allowed to enter our clinic.
- We have multiple air filters running 24/7 that are hyper HEPA filters to filter bacteria and viruses
Silicon Valley Orthopaedicsis re-structuring our daily schedule to limit the number of people in the office at any one time.
We will also be limiting visitors to those under 65 years of age. Those 65 years of age or older should stay home and follow the guidelines set out by the health authorities.
We will be moving some consultations online, using a common program such as FaceTime, for the safety and convenience of our patients. Additional details in this regard will be forthcoming.
Urgent cases will go forward as scheduled at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, whereas elective cases will be rescheduled taking into consideration all relevant safety precautions, and on a case by case basis.
As the situation with coronavirus evolves, we will continue to keep you updated and take any necessary precautions to ensure the safety of everyone in our community. As always, we are grateful for the trust you place in us and hope these changes we’ve made give you peace of mind. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or for any reason.
