We understand that you may have questions and concerns about the current coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis.
Rest assured that Florida Perinatal Center is preparing to the fullest extent possible while providing you with Top-of-the-line care.
Our highest priority is the health and safety of our patients and staff. We are exercising increased precautions to reduce the risk of patients’ exposure to COVID-19, including frequent sanitizing of exam rooms, waiting rooms and reception areas.
We are also communicating with patients prior to their appointments to review our current policies and procedures to ensure the safety of ALL our patients and staff.
Our current screening criteria are below:
- If you are experiencing flulike symptoms eg: fever, cough, shortness of breath or sore throat – please call us for information about rescheduling your appointment.
- If you have been in contact with someone who is a PUI (person under investigation) for having COVID-19, or who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, please call for information about rescheduling your appointment.
- If you have travelled out of the area within the last 2 weeks – please contact us to reschedule your appointment.
In order to keep patients and staff safe, we have instituted the following procedures:
- We check all patient’s temperatures prior to entering the inner office.
- All patients must come alone to their appointment unless the person accompanying them is critical to their care eg: an aide if disabled.
- Check-in will take place over the phone when you arrive for your appointment. Please give us a call once in the parking lot and we will check you in. Once it is your turn, we will call you to enter the office.
- We offer Telemedicine for consultations, office visits, diabetic teaching and preconception consults.
- Clinical staff wear protective equipment in our office.
- Protective plexiglass barriers have been installed at out check-in and check-out areas to provide an additional level of protection.
- We ask that ALL patients wear a mask-as recommended by the CDC.
- We have weekly staff meetings to update the staff and get feedback/input on an ongoing basis.
For more information, please do not hesitate to contact our office. We are proactively monitoring the WHO, CDC and local authorities’ recommendations with relation to Maternal-Fetal Medicine so we can better serve you during this difficult time.
