We are prepared to quickly identify and separate patients with symptoms of COVID-19. All patients will be screened upon entry to the facility and instructed to continue wearing their cloth face covering.
We are monitoring all staff for symptoms of COVID-19.
We are instructing staff who have symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches, tiredness) to stay home and not come to work.
We are providing extra training for staff and education for patients about the importance of hand hygiene, face masks, respiratory hygiene, and cough etiquette.
Tissues, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and trash cans will be provided in the waiting area and treatment area. Soap and water will continue to be available at all hand washing sinks and in the restrooms.
We are training staff about proper use of personal protective equipment for COVID-19.
You may see a change in the personal protective equipment (i.e. gowns, masks, gloves) that staff are asked to wear.
Temperature checks will be required upon arrival
We are continuing our routine cleaning and disinfection procedures as these procedures are recommended for protecting patients from COVID-19 in dialysis settings.
Any surface, supplies, or equipment located within the patient station will continue to be disinfected or discarded. We will ensure any surface, supplies or equipment located within 6 feet of an ill patient is disinfected or discarded.
