Covington Women’s Health Specialists’ In-Office Visits Safety Procedures
Protecting your safety is our top priority and we want to keep you updated on our processes for your visit to our offices. In regards to COVID-19, we are actively monitoring its overall status in the community and following CDC and DPH guidelines. As needed, we will adjust our in-office visit policies to protect the overall health and safety of our patients and employees.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We appreciate your cooperation as we strive to accommodate your needs and keep everyone healthy.
Masks or Face Coverings are Recommended for Patients
Additional Guests are Permitted
As of March 2023, masks are no longer required but strongly encouraged for patients to wear. While our mandates have relaxed, please keep in mind that some physicians will require masks for their patients. This is for everyone’s health and safety. Thank you for your understanding.
In order to limit the amount of people in our waiting rooms, we would prefer for patients to not have guests at their appointment. However, if you are pregnant or just recently gave birth, please familiarize with our updated policy that allows a support person or baby at your next appointment.
We understand the variety of needs for a support person at your visit. Please reach out to our office if you want to request for a support companion at your upcoming visit for needs such as translating or physical support due to a disability.
We encourage patients to utilize videoconferencing on their personal devices or have their support person on speakerphone for the duration of the appointment.
- We are taking the temperature as part of appointment screening. Anyone with a fever will be asked to leave and reschedule for when they are not sick.
- Wash your hands after touching surfaces that may be frequently touched by other people, such as door handles, tables, etc. You also need to wash your hands before touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- We will continue to implement televisits as a scheduling option for certain healthcare needs that can be provided over the phone without an in-person visit.
These processes protect the health of our patients, employees, and the community. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We appreciate your cooperation as we strive to accommodate your needs and keep everyone healthy.
Our priority is always to provide the highest quality care while ensuring the safety and well-being of all our patients.
We have taken into consideration various factors, including equipment limitations and safety protocols within our practice. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to accommodate patients who weigh over 500 pounds due to the constraints of our current equipment.
We understand that this news may be disappointing, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It is essential to us that every patient receives the care they need in an environment that can fully support their specific requirements.
We genuinely care about your health and well-being. Our intention is to ensure you receive the appropriate care in a safe and comfortable setting. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to assisting you further and helping you navigate this situation.
