As we all adjust to a new normal, DLCC is happy that over the last two weeks we have been able to begin offering a full range of services again. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding over the last few weeks.
Thankfully, we were able to continue to provide essential medical care even as other healthcare facilities and businesses were not so fortunate. During the last several weeks, we diagnosed melanoma in patients who had come in with routine care, highlighting the importance of continuing to seek medical care even as you are concerned about COVID-19.
AT DLCC, we are redoubling our already high standards for patient safety:
- Our providers and staff have increased the use of Personal Protective Equipment and other preventative precautions – including the use of masks during direct contact with patients and other staff, frequent cleaning and sanitization of surface areas, the use of gloves by administrative staff when passing information back and forth to patients, etc.
- Providers and staff meetings with reps and/or vendors have been canceled until further notice
- All DLCC events and participation in public health fairs have been canceled through April 30th.
- All of our staff will follow these and additional enhanced illness policies DLCC has instituted.
While we have moved back to a 5-day work week, we are continuing to provide telemedicine services to patients who prefer this option. Non-emergency services are available Monday-Wednesday. Emergency services only are available on Thursday-Friday.
Again, thank you for your patience during these extraordinary times – and rest assured that the DLCC family is always here for you.
