Patients and Customers,
We understand Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a significant concern for our community, nation and world at this time. Treasure Coast Eye Associates considers the health and safety of our community as a top priority.
To ensure the health of our patients, customers and staff members, we are implementing the following policies, procedures and guidelines:
OFFICE HOURS WILL RETURN TO NORMAL ON MAY 4, 2020 WITH SOME CHANGES
8:30-5:30 Monday thru Friday
--All patients will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth during the entirety of their time in our office for the safety of everyone. If you come without a mask, one will be provided to you.
--Bandanas and balaclavas have been found in studies to be ineffective at preventing aerosolization of virus and are therefore not allowed.
--All employees will be screened for symptoms and have their temperature checked at the beginning of each workday, and all employees will be wearing a mask during your care.
--All patients and customers will be REQUIRED to use hand sanitizer or wash hands upon their arrival to our office. We are encouraging the same protocol before leaving our office.
--Gloves should not be worn. Gloves can spread the virus in the same way that unwashed hands can do so. Hand sanitizer or washing is the only way to guarantee cleanliness.
--If you (or someone close to you) have experienced any fever, cold, or flu-like symptoms, or shortness of breath within the last 2 weeks, please do not visit our office. Instead, call us to reschedule at a later date.
--Symptoms of the Coronavirus include: Dry Cough, Fever or Chills, Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing, Muscle pain (aches) or Body Weakness, Fatigue, Nausea or Vomiting.
--Only the patient/customer will be allowed into the office. Exceptions will be allowed for a necessary caregiver or parent All others accompanying you should remain in their vehicle or return to pick you up after your appointment.
--Our cleaning and disinfecting protocols are extensive. All counters, surfaces, exam rooms, equipment, frame boards doorknobs and sinks are being disinfected between each patient. Please be patient as we complete this process before we bring you into the office.
--Treasure Coast Eye Associates reserves the right to ask anyone exhibiting symptoms to leave the office and reschedule the appointment, without penalty and at no cost to the patient.
--Please be patient if we appear short staffed as we are not allowing any employees to come to work if they feel ill until they have seen a doctor and are cleared.
--If you have an ocular emergency, but you have flu-like symptoms (or may have been exposed to Coronavirus) or have traveled recently, please call and alert us BEFORE visiting the office. Dr. Roselli or Dr. Robinson will contact you and discuss treatment options. We may be able to do a tele-consult using Skype, Facetime, or Zoom.
--We are following Center for Disease Control (CDC), Florida Department of Health and Indian River County guidelines and recommendations for healthcare facilities and small businesses.
THANK YOU in advance for your understanding, patience and help in keeping our community safe and healthy. Be well, wash your hands often, limit the times you touch your face and eyes with those clean hands, and continue to practice social distancing when possible.
