Our 6 Safety Protocols To Keep You Safe At Your In-Person Appointment

Our 6 Safety Protocols To Keep You Safe At Your In-Person Appointment

by | Jan 27, 2022 | Hearing Test, Patient Resources

COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and with the development of the Omicron variant, we must continue to protect you, other patients, and staff.

Strict protocols remain in place to ensure you visit a safe and clean environment, so we can continue to care for the hearing of Tri-Cities and Walla Walla.

To stay up to date with the latest CDC government guidelines in your county, please use the CDC tool below.

These include:

#1 – Curb-Side Appointments Available

For patients that would prefer to stay in their vehicles during these challenging times, curb-side appointments are available.

This allows you to park, call our office, and a member of the team will be able to collect your hearing devices to carry out cleanings and any amendments before sanitizing and returning them to you.

It allows you to continue to receive 5-star care without leaving the comfort of your car.

#2 – Heightened Sanitization Protocols

Between appointments, additional time has been scheduled to thoroughly clean all surfaces and ensure each patient enters a sanitized environment.

#3 – Hand Sanitizer on Arrival

All patients must use the provided hand sanitizer upon arrival – this will be found as you walk into the office door.

#4 – Pre-Appointment Screening

In the same way our team’s health is being monitored daily through temperature checks and routine hand cleaning, you are kindly asked to reschedule your appointment if you have had a fever or cough.

#5- Disposable Gloves & Face Masks

To protect you, our team is using disposable gloves and face masks for appointments to give you peace of mind and ensure your health is the overall priority.

#6 – Minimum Company for Appointments

You’re kindly asked to bring a maximum of one person with you for your appointment, and ideally visit alone if possible.

Although it’s been classed as safe for patients to visit our offices, your health is our key priority.

Please do not turn up without a scheduled appointment, and if you need any help, supplies, or support, then please call your local office.

Thank you for trusting us with your hearing healthcare; we hope to see you soon.
