How we are trying our best for a safe environment
+ mandatory mask use for all staff and patient while in the office space.
+ strict hand hygiene protocols and spacing in waiting room to ensure physical distance.
+ one-use gowns worn during procedures.
+ closed in treatment rooms for aerosol control.
+ room air clearance systems with HEPA & UV-C air filtration so room air is 99% disinfected in under 10 minutes.
+ Full cover respirators (max-air CAPR) worn during aerosol procedure, the same as seen on the TV show Grey’s Anatomy, which exceeds the N95 protection level. On top of their regular PPE, our clinic hygienists also wear full cover respirators.
+ room misting during room turnover with HOCl, a powerful oxidant that is 100x more effective than bleach but is safe enough for our staff and patients. For more information about Hypochlorous Systems, please visit Echolox Tech.
