COVID-19 Update Policies and Procedures
Here at Village Crossing Women's Health we understand that continued access to safe health care is an essential item during this world-wide COVID-19 pandemic. We have taken several steps to ensure that this continues to be available:
1. Methodist Stone Oak Hospital has been very proactive with this crisis and has been limiting entry into the hospital and medical office building for several weeks now. Health care personnel are positioned at the main entrance and are screening every patient and visitor for high-risk factors, such as cough, fever, shortness of breath, or recent travel to CDC-quarantine locations, and are denying entry to any screen-positive patient. Additionally, the hospital is only allowing patients into the building without additional visitors or family members.
2. Village Crossing Women's Health is following CDC guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in the outpatient setting by frequently sanitizing common areas in the office and sanitizing each exam room after every patient encounter. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the office and patients are being encouraged to sanitize before and after their visits.
3. To further minimize the risk of community spread of COVID-19 and ensure patient safety, Dr. Feinstein is now offering telemedicine visits for appropriate patients, such as patients not needing examinations, concerns about UTI's or vaginal infections, hormone follow-ups, etc.
The coming weeks will present all of us significant challenges but with good practices, common sense, and heeding recommendations from our health-related public officials, we will get through this together. Please don't hesitate to call the office for more information or to voice your concerns so we can continue to help.
Stay smart and stay safe.
