Our office takes infection control very seriously. Gloves, gowns and masks are required. After each patient visit, disposable PPE-such as gloves, drapes, needles, and scalpel blades-are thrown away, hands are washed, and a new pair of gloves used for the next patient.
All hand instruments used on patients are washed, disinfected and/or sterilized with chemicals or steam after each use. Hands are constantly washed, so as to provide our patients with a completely sterile environment.
