COVID-19 Protocols

Updated 6/24/2021

For patients visiting Oklahoma Eye Surgeons, we are committed to the highest standards to ensure the safety and well-being of all patients, visitors and staff.

We screen to protect you, your families, and our staff:

We screen all employees daily – anyone with symptoms of a possible respiratory illness is not allowed to work until they are better.
We screen on arrival all patients and visitors for symptoms of possible COVID-19.

All patients and visitors are screened prior to and upon arrival, and if   symptomatic, will not be permitted to enter the building.

We clean our hands and spaces and make it easy for you to do the same:

We have increased the frequency and intensity of cleaning of all high touch areas throughout the office.
We require frequent hand-cleaning, and have added hand sanitizer stations so patients and staff can clean their hands easily and frequently.

We protect everyone in our environment:

We require all people – employees, patients, and

visitors – to wear a mask at all times while in the building. 

We understand there is no longer a state mask mandate; however,

there are exceptions for medical facilities.

 

The CDC still requires masks in public and private medical facilities

in patient care areas and lobby space, regardless of vaccination status.

 

We have rearranged spaces to accommodate physical distancing and prevent transmission of hidden infections by preventing seating in select chairs in our lobby.

All patients will be required wait in their vehicles upon arrival and call us to receive further instructions. 

All non-essential guests must wait in their vehicles while our patients are being cared for by our doctors and staff.

The lobby is reserved for patients who are awaiting specialized testing only and the seating is well spaced, but limited.

Only one essential visitor is permitted to accompany each patient. 

Essential visitors are defined as:

Support persons for patients:
One family member
Two (2) parents of patients who are under the age of 18 years old
Attorneys of patients
Companions for patients with intellectual and/or physical disabilities

Vendors and contractors whose urgent, non-deferrable services are deemed essential for the functioning of Oklahoma Eye Surgeons activities.
Emergency Services Personnel (e.g., EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement)

All other visitors are considered non-essential.

Please note:   Children who are not patients are not permitted in the facility.
