Dr. Martin addresses the challenges of providing safe healthcare while the community is facing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19.
Dear VVC Patient,
I want to provide you with an update on how we at Vascular Vein Centers (VVC) are addressing the challenges of providing safe healthcare while the community is facing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As always, the health and safety of our patients and caregivers is our top priority. Though we have always had a rigorous disinfecting protocol in all our locations, we have enhanced our cleaning measures. This means more frequent cleaning of waiting areas, common areas, restrooms and high touch areas of our clinics. We have reduced the number of patients in the waiting rooms at any given time.
We are diligently following the precautions as outlined by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and the Florida Department of Health. These include:
- Encouraging our patients and caregivers to stay home when sick
- Avoidance of touching face, eyes, nose, and mouth
- Rigorous and frequent handwashing with soap and water for 20 seconds or longer
- Proper respiratory etiquette
All our locations are open to provide excellent leg health. If there should be any changes to our operations based on the current conditions, we will stay in touch to inform you of on-going changes.
