MSSNY Urges People To Seek Medical Care During The Pandemic
The New York Post (5/3, Campanile) reported the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) “is urging people to go to doctors’ offices for crucial medical care amid the pandemic.” In a statement, the group said, “Physician practices and healthcare facilities have seen massive drops in patient visits, caused by a combination of shelter in place orders and patient fear. This may lead to much more complex problems in the future, as patients miss routine screenings and preventative care.” MSSNY also said that “with proper safety precautMXions, a doctor’s office is one of the safest places for a patient.”
MCHN has implemented infection control procedures to protect non-COVID patients during the pandemic:
Staff members are screened for COVID-19 symptoms, wear masks and other protective equipment.
All patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms before arriving for their visit,
all staff and patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms at the center and given a temperature check with a “no-touch” thermometer.
All patients are also required to wear a mask, and social-distancing measures “will be enforced” in waiting areas.
The center is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day
