As we are all well aware, the COVID-19 Coronavirus has changed the way we operate in our everyday life. Here at the Ballarat Surgicentre we continue to implement safety precautions and screening measures to ensure our patients and staff are kept safe during these difficult times. While we continue to operate as per normal, we require our patient’s cooperation in ensuring we can all remain safe and well during these times. If you start to show any signs or symptoms of a runny nose, sore throat, fever, chills, shortness of breath or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 please call the facility as we will need to reschedule your appointment.
As it is now mandatory in Victoria to wear a face covering while outside of your home, we require all our patients and carers to please wear a face covering into the facility. Every patient and carer who enters the facility is screened with a variety of questions, temperatures taken and are asked to use the hand sanitisers upon arrival. If there is anyone who fails to pass this screening, they are asked to re-appoint. All staff at the Ballarat Surgicentre also have their temperature taken daily and are wearing face masks around the facility to ensure the safety of all individuals.
The Ballarat Surgicentre team understand that these are unprecedented times that are forever changing, so your continued support and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
