Our Other Preventative Measures

We have always worked hard to make sure Infusion for Health infusion centers are free from disease-causing organisms by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting patient rooms and other parts of our facilities. During the coronavirus pandemic, we have added other measures to safeguard everyone from exposure and to help patients continue to receive their critical infusion and injected therapies.

Patient and Staff Screenings

  • Patients are pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to their visit. Anyone who fails the COVID-19 screening is unable to have their infusion. We know this may cause some inconvenience to you. We will work to reschedule at a later time when symptoms subside. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.
  • All staff are checked for symptoms twice a day, including prior to starting their shift.
  • If there is a suspected exposure, patients and staff and patients are notified as soon as possible and asked to monitor for symptoms.

Masks

  • All staff wear protective gear (masks and gloves).
  • Patients must wear a mask in all common areas of our facilities.
  • During the infusion when the infusion staff are present, patients we request patients keep their masks on. When physical contact is not necessary, infusion nurses stand six feet away from patients.

Check-In Process

  • We have contactless patient check-in.
  • Only one patient is in the waiting room at any given time. Often, patients are escorted directly to their private infusion suite.

Food, Beverages or Reading Materials

  • We bring individually-packaged snacks and drinks to patients by request.
  • We have removed all shared magazine, newspapers, candy, coffee machines and water dispensers.

Patient Visitors

  • Due to COVID-19, patient visitors are not allowed in the infusion center. If desired, our free Wi-Fi capabilities allow family members and caretakers to stay connected with patients via phone or video chat.
  • Under special circumstances* with approval from the treating physician, a caregiver will be allowed to accompany the patient. Caregivers will be screened before entering.

Our Continual Monitoring of COVID-19 Guidelines

The safety of our patients, their families, and our team members is our highest priority.

Infusion for Health Cares

Please Note

Special circumstances are patient’s that are under the age of 18 and who must have a parent present for their appointment, or for patients who have a medical condition that requires them to have a caregiver with them for their appointment. In these instances, one visitor will be permitted in the infusion suite with the patient. Additional guests will be asked to remain in their vehicle.

COVID-19 Questions & Answers

What do I do if I have scheduled infusion but I’m not feeling well? If you have an upcoming infusion appointment and have flu-like symptoms – including fever or respiratory symptoms like fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing – please call the office before arrival at (805) 719-3700.

As a patient taking immune suppressing therapy, am I at greater risk for catching COVID-19? And, if so, how can I protect myself? Patients with compromised immune systems are generally more susceptible to viruses, including COVID-19.

You and your close contacts can take these common-sense, proactive measures to protect yourselves and those around you from COVID-19 and the flu:

  • Frequently wash your hands using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If water and soap are not available, you can use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash as soon as possible.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid crowds while receiving therapy.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with household cleaning spray or wipe.

For concerns about your current treatment, talk with your physician for further guidance on the value of your therapy in the current conditions and what other options might be available to you to further limit possible infection.

Should I wear a facemask? CDC recommends that you wear a masks in public settings around people who don’t live in your household and when you can’t stay 6 feet away from others. Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others. See this page for more details.
