How Our Surgical Center Keeps Patients Safe
We have re-opened our practice: it’s important to address the safety and health concerns that many of our patients may have. As always, the safety of our patients is the highest priority for Dr. Berman and our staff, and we’re continuing to make crucial and careful safety efforts.
Dr. Berman performs cosmetic surgery in our AAAASF accredited surgical center, which includes state-of-the-art equipment in a private setting. With the current crisis in mind, this is safer for patients than having an elective procedure in a hospital for several reasons.
Just as social distancing prevents spreading the virus, limiting the number of patients and personnel in a space creates a healthier and safer environment. Unlike a hospital, there are fewer patients being treated at our offices and surgical center as well as a smaller staff. While both hospitals and our practice go to great lengths to sanitize equipment and our facilities, simply having fewer people in a space increases patient safety.
At this time, hospitals are treating patients with covid-19 as well as other health conditions. This increases the risk for patients or staff to be exposed to the virus within the hospital environment. Our surgical center only treats cosmetic patients who have been deemed healthy before undergoing their chosen procedures.
The limited number of patients at our surgical center ensures that each elective procedure patient has adequate and close attention from our staff while enjoying privacy that is sometimes unavailable in a hospital setting. In some cases, you can also recover in our in-house recovery center with nurses monitoring your health and ensuring your comfort following your procedure. This increases patient safety through the early stages of the healing process after cosmetic surgery.
If you have questions about our in-house surgical center or a cosmetic procedure which interests you, call Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa. Dr. Berman or one of our experienced professionals will happily answer any questions you may have. Call (561) 253-3208 or request your appointment online.
