The spread of infectious disease is everyone’s concern, and protecting patients is our top priority. We want you to know that we do everything possible to ensure that our environment is safe. We follow guidelines set forth by both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and continually review new developments in infection control. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards – the same standards we would expect for our own families. We use a variety of procedures and techniques to keep our surroundings safe and infection-free.
- O-SO Pure, which is a triple treatment to remove contaminants, such as bacteria and viruses. Sediment filters first remove sand, silt and other particulates; then carbon filters remove chlorine and other chemicals in the second stage. Treated water is then exposed to high- intensity, ultraviolet rays to destroy bacteria and viruses.-UV sterilization, which uses ultraviolet rays with extremely short wavelengths to effectively kill microorganisms. UVC, which is known as the germicidal bandwidth, has been used in hospitals for decades to sterilize surgical instruments, water and air in operating rooms. Food and drug companies also use germicidal lamps to disinfect various products and their containers.
