COVID-19 Safety Procedures

UPDATE | March 2, 2021

To our Patients:

As a healthcare organization, The Rose will continue to follow the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and safety precautions related to COVID-19.

We recognize that the statewide mandate for wearing masks has been lifted by Governor Abbott, however, we will continue to require masks of anyone entering our facilities. This is to ensure your safety and wellbeing.  We will continue to screen all patients, employees, and physicians as they enter our facilities, follow social distancing guidelines and cleaning protocols.

Your health is our top priority, and we remain confident that we will serve you in a safe and efficient manner.

If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us at 281-484-4708.

Precautions & Safety Procedures

  • We are scheduling patients carefully to allow time for enhanced cleaning and social distancing. Only essential employees are allowed in the building.
  • Our process has women waiting in their cars until called. Only one patient at a time was allowed in the lobby; the employee then checked her temperature and asked the screening questions recommended by the CDC. Patients are also screened at the time of confirming their appointments.
  • Once the examination area was cleared of the previous patient, and the patient screened, she was able to enter the building and proceed to the clinical suite and taken directly to the examination room for services.
  • Employees and onsite security staff are assigned to monitor doors to control traffic into the building.
  • All employees and physicians who are providing direct patient care are fully suited with PPE, including face shields, gloves, protective gowns, and masks.  Anyone entering the building is required to wear a mask; staff members handling support duties are masked and gloved. Patients are provided an appropriate mask upon arrival if they are using cloth masks.
  • For our Mobile Mammography Program, initially, we will only partner with those medical clinics, physician offices, or FQHCs, which are following the same safety precautions. They are responsible for screening the patient and keeping the patient in a 'holding' area until the coach is cleared of any other patient. Only those partners who are equally concerned about patient safety and have demonstrated they are following the CDC recommendations will be considered.

Essentially, the following is a list of the enhanced safety precautions that have been implemented:

    1. Personal Protective Equipment provided for patients and staff;
    2. Examination room and mammography system deep cleaned after every exam;
    3. Temperature check of all patients and employees and physicians at check-in;
    4. Reduced Patient volume, guaranteeing no contact with another patient from reception to departure;
    5. Pre-appointment patient screening, and if positive to any questions, procedure is canceled;
    6. Clearly marked signage and spaces to ensure social distancing;
    7. Physical barriers (temporary glass partitions) installed between patient and staff;
    8. Clearly marked signage at entrance and check-in about safety initiatives being taken to address COVID-19 during examinations;
    9. And information is being added to our website about safety initiatives as well as notice of limited scheduling.

 

Mobile Coach Precautions

  1. All motorcoaches are equipped with exhaust vents specifically designed for infection control and exchange cabin air every 3-5 minutes.
  2. All three fans will be turned on when more than one occupant is on board.
  3. All motorcoaches are equipped with anti-microbial medical grade surfaces and hospital grade high-performance HEPA filter media A/C filters.

 

Lead Radiologist Dr. Cotes on COVID-19 Vaccines & Screening Mammograms

You may have seen the news suggesting that a reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine could cause lumps that may be detected by a mammogram. Dr. Cotes, lead radiologist at The Rose, explains what you need to know and why you want to let our medical staff know if you've recently had the vaccine.

Early detection through routine screenings gives us the best chance to fight breast cancer, and a delay in this screening is simply not worth the risk.

Vaccunas de COVID-19 y Examenes de Mamografia con Dr. Cotes

Es posible que haya visto las noticias que una reacción a la vacuna COVID-19 podría causar bultos que pueden ser detectados por una mamografía. El Dr. Cotes, radiólogo principal de The Rose, explica lo que necesita saber y por qué desea informar a nuestro personal médico si se ha vacunado recientemente.

La detección temprana a través de exámenes de rutina nos brinda la mejor oportunidad de combatir el cáncer de mama, y una demora en este examen simplemente no vale la pena correr el riesgo.
