We know many of you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus). Fortunately, at the Discseel® Procedure Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) our high standard of patient care and cleanliness proves to be beneficial. Our ASC facility is designated for the exclusive, sole use of our select patients. The highest standards to prevent infections have always been maintained and for this reason, no patients have ever experienced a communicable infection at our center.
In comparison, the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, and other community and academic hospitals find themselves under a different set of circumstances with their “open-door” policies – these facilities receive countless numbers of patients from throughout the community. Although many of these patients have only mild illness and do not require hospitalization, they are still overwhelming those emergency departments and hospitals.
On the contrary, our private Ambulatory Surgery Center remains earmarked for the exclusive use of our select patients undergoing prescheduled Discseel® Procedures. It is one of many reasons that no major United States Hospital shares our excellent record. In fact, they are now adopting our longstanding protocols of infection prevention, cleanliness, and patient care. Current CDC COVID-19 recommendations have always been a part of our infection control program designed to prevent transmission of all infections including seasonal respiratory infections and COVID-19. At other hospitals with “open doors,” it will be challenging to distinguish COVID-19 from other respiratory infections.
The Discseel Procedure® ASC facility maintains the highest standards to prevent infection, long before the Coronavirus.
