COVID 19 Update – Staff and Patient Protocols – 14th of August 2020

COVID 19 Update  – Central Sydney Cardiology 14th of August 2020 

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, Central Sydney Cardiology is updating practice protocols accordingly, to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff.

We are committed to providing continued patient care during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are taking extra precautions during this time including:

        • – Following New South Wales Health Department guidelines, all doctors and staff members within 1.5 metres of a patient will be wearing a face mask.

        • – Advising all patients and support persons to bring a face mask to their appointment.

        • – There is a 2-part patient screening program in place. The RPAH Medical Centre Management Team is screening everyone entering the building. All our patients are being screened again on arrival at our reception desk for any symptoms of illness, if they have visited Victoria recently and if they have visited the recent Sydney hotspots – Clear signage is updated daily and displayed in the waiting room of the Sydney hotspots.

        • – Sending text message reminders about bringing a mask, not coming in if you are unwell, limiting supporting people and not arriving early to your appointment.

        • – Requesting that any visitors limit their support to one person.

        • – Requesting that all visitors use hand sanitiser on arrival.

        • – Staff and doctors are washing hands regularly and using hand sanitiser.

        • – Regular cleaning of furniture, benches, desks, examination beds, technical and medical equipment.

        • – Practicing social distancing, and our waiting room has been reconfigured to take this into account.
