COVID-19 Update 3/13/2020

At IHS, we’re working hard to protect our patients and staff from COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). You can be confident that we’ve taken all the necessary steps to reduce the chances of disease transmission at our centers through patient interaction with our staff and imaging equipment.

We have an infection control team that is actively monitoring the situation and helping us to update our processes as needed. Our scheduling team and front desk staff are screening patients by asking questions that could identify risk both when they call for appointment and again when they check in at the front desk.

We are also using guidelines recommended by the CDC:

  • We have increased the number of times that our centers are cleaned and thoroughly disinfected.
  • We have implemented strict guidelines on the use of personal hygiene measures, such as hand washing after every patient interaction, and the use of alcohol based hand sanitizers.
  • We are offering barrier protection masks to high-risk patients.
  • We educate our staff on a regular basis about ways to protect our patients and themselves from contracting this virus.
  • We are working with our cleaning staff to ensure the proper use of medical grade cleaning materials, as well as providing all equipment and supplies necessary to ensure proper disinfection.

We understand that this is a time of anxiety, and IHS will continue to stay updated through the CDC and other local health department agencies and do our utmost to help you stay safe and healthy.
