Update on maintaining safety at IVF Michigan

At IVF Michigan, our patients’ health is our top concern. In addition to following the CDC’s guidelines in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while visiting any of our locations, we are also taking the following steps out of an abundance of caution, and concern for the well-being of everyone:
 
We are:
 
  • Continuing to use telehealth appointments for established and new patient consultations.

  • Requiring all patients and staff to wear a mask. We ask that you bring your own mask; if you don’t have one, we will provide one for you. We thank you for doing your part in protecting yourself and our staff.

  • At this time, we are only allowing the patient into our office; this will reduce the amount of people in the office at one time. Partners and children will not be allowed into the office. In addition, only patients are allowed into the procedure area for retrievals and embryo transfers.

  • Requiring patients to call from their vehicle when they arrive, so an IVF Michigan staff member may perform COVID-19 screening before entering the building. After passing the COVID-19 screening, the front desk will check patients in and call them when it is time to enter our office. After entering, a temperature will be taken to complete the screening process.

  • Cleaning and disinfecting all work areas at the start and end of each shift, and throughout the day as needed.

  • Implementing hand hygiene as directed by CDC.

  • Following 6-feet social distancing.

  • Checking patients and staff temperatures.

  • Testing our patients with serology for COVID-19 prior to any surgical procedure.
  • Utilizing ultraviolet light to disinfect laboratory areas when patients and staff are not in the office.

 

Please call our office with any questions.  We also suggest you review these FAQs provided by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology.  We thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times!
