COVID: The Path Forward
Safety Protocol Policy
April 27, 2020
Patient, Visitor and all Medina Vision Employees
- Take Temperature
- Wear a mask
At the time of scheduling and appointment confirmation, patients will be instructed to take their own temperature before leaving home and to enter Medina Vision Centre wearing a mask or cloth face covering. Only young children under age 2 or anyone with a breathing disorder will be exempt from wearing a mask or cloth covering in the facility.
All patients and visitors will be asked to hand sanitize at the Welcome Center upon entering facility.
All equipment and surfaces will be cleaned with a germicidal agent between patients. At the top of every hour of operation throughout the day, employees will be asked to disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as workstations, counters, railings, door handles clipboards, pens, chairs and other public surfaces.
All eyewear tried on in the optical dispensary will be disinfected before replacing them on display.
Physical Distancing Measures
It is recommended that individuals maintain six feet of distance between each other when practical. To best accomplish this:
- Patients entering for a scheduled appointment should come with paperwork completed prior to entering. If a patient enters without completed paperwork, they will be asked to take paperwork to their car to complete.
- Patients needing to pick up contacts or glasses, or requiring a glasses adjustment should schedule a time and/or call from the parking lot to make sure that social distancing can be maintained prior to entering the facility. “Curb-side” dispensing will be available at the Welcome Center window.
- Companions will be asked to remain outside the facility and not accompany the patient unless they are the parent of a minor or guardian/care giver to a patient requiring assistance. Only one parent or guardian will be allowed per patient.
