Middlesex Digestive Continues to Protect Patients from COVID-19
Here at Middlesex Endoscopy Center, we are taking every COVID-19 precaution to ensure that patient safety is our top priority. We have implemented social distancing and are only allowing a certain number of people in the building at any given time. We have also spaced out the chairs in the waiting area so they are at least 6-feet apart. Our staff both, medical and business, will wear masks during all interactions. Medical staff will also be wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) that will be changed after every patient.
Our Patients Journey During COVID-19
To ensure that we are keeping everyone safe, we have implemented new extensive precautions, which can impact your wait time. Please be aware that you could be here for up to 3 ½ hours.
- You will receive a call from Emerson COVID-19 scheduling as we are requiring all patients to have COVID-19 testing 72 hours prior to your procedure. You will ONLY receive a call with your results if you are positive.
- Please wear a mask if you have one. If you do not, we will supply you with one once you get to our facility.
- Once you arrive for your appointment please come through the double doors, and someone will be there to greet you. That is when we will perform a final health screening before entering the building.
How We Disinfect Our Facility
All procedure rooms will have a deep cleaning after every procedure, we also have Beyond Guardian Air, air purifiers in every procedure room. This air purifier captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.1 micron, it has a five-stage filter and uses ActivePure Technology, which is used on the International Space Station. We are also spraying the entire building weekly with an Electrostatic Sprayer, which is effective against SARS-CoV2, staph, E coli and Salmonella enterica.
Unfortunately, no rides are allowed into the building. Your ride will receive a call from a nurse when you are almost ready to go.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 978-429-2000.
