Information from Dr. Sam Ghazawy, MB.ChB. MRCP. MRCSEd (Ophth). MRCG about EdenMed’s Covid-19 precautions.
Here at EdenMed, I take the safety and health of our patients and customers extremely seriously. As a fully qualified medical practitioner, I’m fully aware of the devastating effects of Covid-19 and know how indiscriminately the virus can be spread through personal contact. As you can understand, my surgical knowledge supports my approach to cleanliness. In other words – spotlessness is vital.
Nothing could have prepared us for the impact of the Coronavirus, but we’re working hard to keep everyone as protected as possible. Here are the processes we have place:
It goes without saying that were I to develop Covid-19 symptoms, I will need to cancel your appointment. I’ll offer as much notice as I can, with a view to re-scheduling.
The same goes for you: please do not attend if you feel unwell – for example if you start to have a dry cough or develop a temperature of 37.8 degrees or more, of if you lose your sense of taste or smell. Further, if someone in your household experiences Covid-19 symptoms please re-arrange your appointment with EdenMed to self-isolate for the required length of time.
All visitors to the salon in which I work are temperature-checked as they come in.
Please come alone. There are no waiting facilities as we want to reduce public contact and the risk of spreading the virus.
Please use the hand sanitisers in reception when you come in, and again when you leave.
I take high-level infection prevention measures and clinical protocols as standard. My rooms are cleaned and treated with medical disinfectant between each patient visit.
Please wear a mask to enter my clinic. However, you may remove it during your consultation – of course.
I will wear PPE (including a mask) throughout your consultation and treatment. Also, masks are obligatory for all practitioners in the building in which I work.
There’s fantastic news: a vaccine is on its way, and everything looks good. In the meantime, let’s keep as safe and as far away from this virus for as we can – until we no longer need to.
