Screening of Staff Members
In the unlikely scenario that a staff member becomes infected with COVID-19, they will be quarantined from Ocean Drive. They will not return to work until they are no longer infectious based on further testing.
We fully intend to honor the federal recommendations on social distancing.
Enhanced Hand Washing/Personal Hygiene
At our core, Ocean Drive is a boutique, destination plastic surgery center, emphasis on surgery. Unlike many other offices, we are surgeons, and surgeons scrub. Scrubbing hands is different, and vastly more effective than washing your hands. Every member of the office has been trained not on how to wash your hands, but on how to scrub your hands prior to intervention. Essentially, we invested in our patient experience by amplifying and distributing surgical sterility protocols from our Operating Room to our spa, our clinic, and our administrative offices.
Also, patients undergoing laser, filler, ultrasound, or surgical procedures will be offered a complimentary hand sanitizer at checkout.
After elevating our hand wash hygiene, we then invested in elevating the cleanliness or our office, and by increasing the availability of hand washing/sanitization stations. We have installed new hygenic equipment in literally every room of our center. Every room. Spa, massage, consult, postop, bathrooms, everywhere.
Each room will now undergo what is called a “terminal clean” after each patient encounter. This is the same type of cleaning we use routinely in our Operating Room. We will be applying those principles to every spa and treatment room for every visit. Regardless of reason for visitation, we will maintain a surgical level of sterility throughout our office during your visit.
Our primary goal at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery and MedSpa is patient safety. Always has been, always will be. Because of this, we closed very early in response to this crisis. We did this to reduce the spread of this virus, but also, we did it to protect our facility from exposure. We are confident that our facility is safe and clean. To ensure this, however, we have elected to elevate the bar for our patients even further when it comes to their safety.
All patients receiving any surgical procedure may receive a free COVID-19 test. This test has been validated and approved by the FDA, and has a 97% accuracy rate. Antigen tests are also available for a $95 fee.
Crisis does not create a person’s character. It reveals it.
We believe that COVID-19 was a test, of us individually, and as a community. We believe that we did everything possible to support our home in its time of need. Further, we believe that we have taken remarkable precautions to safeguard our patients and our staff, and we firmly believe that we are a safe, comfortable environment for spa services, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery. We hope to see you soon. Stay safe!
