As the impact of COVID-19 continues to escalate, we feel it’s important to provide an update on the services provided here by HDC.
As of now, we are still open for business. We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our patients and staff by following the guidelines set forth by the CDC.
These are a few of the steps we have taken thus far:
✔️ Screening all patients over the phone prior to their appointments to assess for any high-risk indicators such as coughs, shortness of breath, fever, any recent travel over the last two weeks or any exposure to a known individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.
✔️ Reducing facility hours and staffing to accommodate only those studies deemed to be an emergency or medically necessary.
✔️ Asking all patients to bring their own pens to decrease the handling of objects by a large number of people.
✔️ Advising patients to wear their own masks to their appointments if they have them.
✔️ Advising patients to come to appts alone when possible to decrease the amount of people in our waiting areas.
✔️ Requesting that patients download all necessary paperwork from this website and complete prior to arriving for their appointments to decrease the amount of time spent in our waiting areas.
✔️ Limiting the amount of people waiting in each of our waiting areas to no more than 10 to ensure safe social distancing.
✔️ Our front door is being kept open during business hours to avoid unnecessary handling of the door handles.
✔️ Conducting more frequent cleaning of patient care and waiting room areas.
✔️ Our staff are being diligent about handwashing and using hand sanitizers. They are using gloves for all patient care and wearing masks and gowns as appropriate.
We will continue to actively monitor this challenging situation and will make necessary changes as new developments arise. We thank you for being a valued patient at HDC. Likewise, we want to thank each and every one of our staff members for continuing to provide healthcare to those in need.
