Now that many optometry practices are starting to re-open following COVID-19, practice guidelines are essential in maintaining the safety of staff and patients. Although you may be screening patients by checking temperatures and utilizing COVID-19 screening questionnaires, the reality is that many people who become infected with this virus are asymptomatic.
Along with proper disinfection practices, having the right personal protective equipment (PPE) is your best defense against infection. Here are the items you should keep in stock at your practice:
Other items to consider:
Help Your Patients Stay Protected
Consider buying PPE products in bulk. Not only does it save money and ensure ample supply, but you can also sell these products to customers who may have trouble finding face masks and gloves.
You may have immuno-compromised or older patients who would prefer not to make an extra trip to the store to purchase PPE. Making them available through your practice is much more convenient for patients who already need an eye exam or to purchase glasses and contacts.
This is also an excellent opportunity to build patient loyalty by reminding your patients that you care for their eye health and overall wellbeing.
