The pandemic has changed virtually every aspect of our daily lives and here at Visioncall our patients are some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
Being able to hug our loved ones again has been such a joyous occasion. But it is essential that we still work together to protect those around us. Good eyesight and good eye health remain essential for our patients, and we are committed to implementing whatever means necessary to deliver an exceptional and safe service.
As lockdown restrictions continue to ease throughout the country, we will be putting all necessary measures in place to protect those individuals who are still at risk from the ongoing impact of Covid-19.
As the pandemic hit, we introduced a host of new measures to support our teams in protecting those at risk. To start, we implemented our new Infection Control and Prevention policy outlining how we will continue to provide our service safely and how we can best avoid the spread of COVID-19.
One of the most significant changes we have made to our service is introducing full PPE when seeing individuals. Our PPE includes gloves, face shields, aprons and hand sanitiser. We also sanitise our equipment before each use to protect our patients. When our clinical team are out they will come equipped with a total supply of PPE, assessing individuals safely.
The way we manage patient safety and infection control must still include additional steps to ensure the health and well-being of our patients. As we continue to navigate the new normal, Visioncall will follow government guidelines implementing any measures necessary to protect our patients.
At Visioncall, we believe in better overall eye health to help our patients see better and live better. If you are a care home manager and are worried about your residents’ eye health, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team to arrange a visit from one of our optometrists.
