The way our practice has worked to stop the spread of any infections are by having patients call before walking in the building, checking temperatures when they walkin and making sure each person has on a mask. There are also stop signs on all doors for people to read stating if they are sick they can not enter the building but can call to set up an appointment for a telemed with any of the providers which is a video appointment. Some ways I think that can help support the delivery of health safety is by having a hand wash area or sink somewhere near checkin, this will reassure everyone that each person walking into that door isn’t spreading germs, if it would be mandatory for them to wash once they enter the building. Another idea could be to provide an education center/ infection control that can give patients some knowledge while they sit and wait for their appointments. Honeslty we can only do but so much to help stop the spread of things and pray we are doing our best.
