In this new normal we live in, there are changes to almost every public procedure we do, all in the name of safety. By now we are getting used to using masks, social distancing, washing our hands plenty, keeping our hands off our faces and overdue haircuts.
At The Footcare Centre, we have been working hard to make sure our patients are safe while they get the care they need. Over the last 4 months we have transformed our clinic and procedures to reflect new guidelines for COVID-19. Some of these changes include, scheduling patients so there is minimal contact in the office, having multiple pre-appointment screens, having all patients wear face masks, and having all patients wash hands upon entering and leaving their appointment. Chiropodists and front staff have increased PPE as well. All staff wear face masks, and during treatment, chiropodists wear face shields, aprons and gloves.
The clinic itself has changed. Plexiglass windows now separate the front desk staff from patients, and cubicles in the waiting room separate patients from other patients. 1-way flow has been established to minimize close contact.
Multiple COVID-19 screens over the phone and in person have been put in place. All these procedures help keep you safe while visiting the Footcare Centre. As we proceed through this everchanging lifestyle of COVID-19, The Footcare Centre keeps your safety at the top of its list. We will all get through this together.
