To the patients of South Shore Women’s Health,

 

As you come to your visits in the coming weeks and months, we want you to know what we are doing to keep you safe. The safety of our patients and staff is important to us.

You will be asked screening questions regarding symptoms and known exposures as you enter our buildings. Our staff will be wearing face coverings and we have put social distancing measures in place, including traffic patterns for entering and exiting our offices. We are providing hand washing capabilities and we are regularly sanitizing all high tough areas. Our staff has been trained on social distancing and hygiene protocols.

We ask that you do your part by wearing a mask as you enter the building and wear it, covering your mouth and nose, until you have left the building. We ask that you be vigilant for symptoms and please stay home if you are sick.

We are following guidance from Governor Baker’s reopening plan, announced on May 18th, to determine when and how patients can be added back into our schedules. In phase 1, we have been provided with the clearance to provide high priority preventive care and treatment for high risk patients. Our tracking system allows us to identify patients in this category and we will be contacting patients who meet this criteria to schedule them for appointments.

If you are experiencing a problem, please call and we will help you to make an appointment to be seen or schedule you for a Telehealth visit if that is more appropriate. We will continue to see pregnant patients at appropriate intervals.

Per State guidelines, we are asking that you come alone to your visits, as this will reduce the risk of unnecessary exposure of our staff and patients. We appreciate your patience as we navigate these unprecedented times and want you to feel reassured that we are doing our part to keep you safe.

 

 

 

Best,

South Shore Women’s Health
