Our Efforts to Slow the Spread
Since the global Coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, The Wright Center for Women’s Health in Naperville, IL has been working diligently with our staff and guests to help slow the spread of COVID-19, — the sometimes deadly disease caused by the virus.
We’ve told you a lot about those efforts in recent months, but we wanted to create an online resource our guests can use as a one-stop-shop for all things COVID-19 related. We invite you to explore this page, and please let us know if you have any questions about what you read here or otherwise.
The Wright Center Safety Measures
What follows is just a few of the safety measures guests can expect to see when they visit our facility to help keep everyone safe:
Pre-Appointment Patient Screening
As recommended by the CDC, The Wright Center is contacting all guests prior to their scheduled office visits to confirm a health status check.
Guests with any COVID-19 symptoms, including cough, fever, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell – are rescheduled per CDC guidelines. We are also conducting telehealth appointments when applicable.
Onsite Temperature and Health Screens
All guests receive temperature checks and health screenings outside the front door of The Wright Center. No guest is permitted entry without this temperature check and screening.
Monitoring & Masking
Staff testing and quarantine guidelines
The Wright Center regularly monitors our staff members for symptoms of COVID-19. This includes daily temperature checks and regular rotational testing. Per state and federal guidelines, all staff members in contact with those testing positive for COVID-19 are required to quarantine at home. Those traveling out of state to COVID hotspots are also asked to quarantine.
All Wright Center staff and guests are required to wear face masks or face coverings at all times while in our facility. Masks are available to guests upon request.
All staff and guests are encouraged to remain at least six feet apart at all times and when possible. We have taken internal steps to ensure all staff members are working a safe distance apart from other staff members. We also allow all staff members who may work from home to do so to ensure overcrowding does not occur in our facility.
Limits have been set on the number of staff and guests that can be in our rooms. In addition, our main waiting area is now closed and guests are required to call when they arrive and wait in their vehicles until called into the office.
Continuous Sanitization of all Surfaces
As a doctor’s office, The Wright Center for Women’s Health has always been vigilant about ensuring the cleanliness of our facility. In addition to daily deep cleaning, all staff members have been trained and instructed to clean and sanitize all surfaces in common areas after each guest visit.
At The Wright Center for Women’s Health, we will continue to go above and beyond the CDC guidelines to keep our guests and staff healthy. If you have any questions about these policies, please don’t hesitate to ask any member of our staff.
