Show patients your practice is a safe space [free templates to print]
As the nation is preparing to return to the workplace, we gathered a few articles, checklists, and one-sheets to consider. This is an ongoing practice management adjustment and evolution. It’s important to maintain a safe environment for yourself, staff, and patients. With many people feeling uncertain during this time, it’s also important to let people in the office know of your new protocols on cleanliness for everyone’s peace of mind.
A simple way to keep people in your practice informed is to post signs around the office, such as reminders on how to stay safe or information on how you have adjusted to keep your practice with the new norm. Here is a checklist of sample signs to consider:
To help get you started, we’ve also created signs that are ready to print and post. Feel free to use these, or create your own. The main objective is that everyone in your practice is informed and safe.
- Sign #2: Information on sanitation protocols
- Sign #3: Explanation of having low occupancy
Face coverings and masks
CDC guidance currently states the following*:
“A cloth face covering should be worn whenever people are in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These settings include grocery stores and pharmacies. These face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing. Cloth face coverings are especially important to wear in public in areas of widespread COVID-19 illness.”
CDC’s definition of “community” is as follows*:
“A specific group of people, often living in a defined geographic area, who share a common culture, values, and norms and who are arranged in a social structure according to relationships the community has developed over a period of time. The term “community” encompasses worksites, schools, and health care sites.”
