Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Update as of March 23, 2020.
Healogics Chief Medical Officer, Dr. William Ennis, discusses the impact of coronavirus on wound care patients and practice.
Healogics is actively following the coronavirus situation closely and takes the health and safety of our patients and team members very seriously. This is an emerging pandemic and we are monitoring and following the most up-to-date recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
We recognize how important it is that patients continue to receive their wound care treatments during the COVID-19 outbreak, to limit their potential of needing hospital assistance. During the COVID-19 outbreak, hospitals in some areas may run the risk of being overtaxed. Ongoing wound care treatments can help to limit wound care-related emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
Your best protection against all respiratory viruses is to:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Make sure to cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Practice frequent hand washing.
Common signs of infection include fever and respiratory symptoms, including cough and shortness of breath. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact your Wound Care Center® before coming in for your appointment so we may best accommodate you.
