What is Wellington Ultrasound doing to reduce my risk of exposure?

 

  • On arrival we encourage the use of hand sanitiser and ask that you check in using your QR code at the entrance or sign in manually.  

  • Importantly you must physically distance. Stay at least two meters away from people you don’t know.

  •  Universal precautions (gel and masks) are available onsite. Staff are frequently sanitising surfaces (high-touch areas).

  • After each diagnostic procedure all surfaces are disinfected and cleaned. 

  • Sonography staff will be using either alcohol gel or gloves to minimise transmission risk and frequent hand washing is employed by all staff members.

We are actively following all health and travel advice issued including mandatory isolation periods for all team members. We support all our team members who need to stay at home if they are unwell for any reason.

People who are symptomatic please DO NOT attend the clinic please contact us to arrange a suitable time for their scan.

 

If you are experiencing a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, change in sense of smell or taste we encourage you to contact your GP or Health-line on 0800 358 5453. See covid19.govt.nz for more information. 

 

We are keeping up-to-date with the situation and this statement will be modified as new information has become available.

 

Please be reassured your health and safety is at the forefront of our care.
