What extra precautions have been implemented due to COVID?

The first thing we would like to introduce to you is our Air Purifier in every room!!

Since Covid, we have been diligently working to make our environment safer for all who are in it. One of the things we have incorporated into our daily routine is the use of air purifying systems.

A person takes 20,000-30,000 breathes each day. HEPA (high-efficiency particle air) Filter is designed to remove 99.97% of airborne particles. However, there are many levels of HEPA efficiency. Our office chose the H13 Medical Grade HEPA filter which captures 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Commonly referred to as 'medical grade filtration' as it relates to the purity of the air filtered.

The air filter purifies the air in four steps:

  1. The Pre-Filter removes large particles such as: Dust, Dander, Hair and others
  2. The True HEPA h13 Filter is the higher Grade of HEPA than Hepa Type or Ture HEPA.
  3. Next is the Activated Carbon Filter absorbs odors, harmful VICs, and other toxic substances such as formaldehyde.
  4. Lastly The Ionizer produces negative ions to neutralize positively charged particles such as dust, bacteria, mold spores, pollen, animal dander and other airborne positive particles.

Each air purifier covers 840 sq feet of space and we have one in each area where staff and patients gather for appointments. Take a deep breath and know that we are implementing new procedures and protocols to keep us safe.
