The hygiene and disinfecting protocols at The Skin & Vein Institute
I'm Dr. Amanda Lloyd, a board-certified dermatologist at the Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas, California. I'm going to talk today about our practice hygiene and disinfecting protocols.
We have always followed the CDC, WHO, and OSHA guidelines for practice cleanliness, and we are certified by the San Diego Department of Environmental Health, which verifies that we are a clean and hygienic establishment.
We clean the exam rooms with medical-grade disinfecting wipes. This includes the patient exam chairs, the pillows, exam lights, the visitor chairs, the countertops, the sinks, doorknobs, the floor, and the faucet.
Basically, anything that anyone would touch in the exam room is wiped down between every patient. So every patient enters a completely clean exam room.
At the end of the day, after all the clinic patients are seen, the surfaces are cleaned again with the medical-grade disinfecting wipes. The bathroom is cleaned, the office is vacuumed, and the trash is removed. This includes medical trash and regular trash.
All of the medical instruments are autoclaved and sterilized before every use.
Since the COVID 19 outbreak, we are screening patients before they visit the office.
When the patient arrives at check-in, they stay six feet away and asked the standard screening questions from the CDC and WHO. They are then brought immediately to the patient room to avoid any waiting in the waiting room. The staff is all wearing personal protective equipment, which includes masks over their mouth, protective eyewear, and gloves.
In addition to all the cleaning that we're doing, there are hand sanitizers, soap and water, and wipes available for every patient in every patient room. We look forward to seeing everyone back in our office, the Skin & Vein Institute.
