LOS ANGELES - March 26, 2020 - PRLog -- The coronavirus will run its course, and all will go back to work if proper measures are followed at this time.  When elective surgery procedures are resumed, Dr. Kenneth Hughes's office staff takes many precautions to combat the coronavirus and assure that no patient contracts the coronavirus. Any patient seen in the office is seen in a particular exam room that has surfaces that can be readily cleansed with antiviral wipes. All surfaces, door handles, drawer handles, counters, and exam room tables and chairs are vigorously disinfected after each patient encounter with viricidal wipes. Secondly, the surgery center cleaning crew is on site every day to clean floors, bathrooms, fixtures, equipment, and even ceilings. All surgeries are scheduled apart from follow-ups or consultations so that the surgical patient is the only individual in the surgery center other than the 5 staff members. All staff members are instructed and follow these protocols as well.

         Masks and gloves are worn with all follow-up patients who require urgent care. Any patients who have symptoms of coronavirus or who have been in contact with a person who had flulike symptoms are asked to stay at home. Any nonurgent patient follow-ups are conducted over the phone or through email to minimize the influx into the office. Finally, consultations can be performed through email or through Skype to minimize exposure as well. No in-office consultations are performed at this time.

        There are many other aspects to this system of protection against coronavirus at Hughes Plastic Surgery. However, protection against the spread of coronavirus involves maintaining clean hands and body surfaces, contact surfaces on which the coronavirus can live, and air portals through which the virus can be transmitted. Finally, Dr. Kenneth Hughes's surgery center has an ultrafast air filtration system, which circulates the operating room volume 30 times an hour.  This same filtration system has a UV lighting apparatus, which kills viral particles on contact. It is important to realize that all of these components protect not only against coronavirus, but other infections as well.  If a patient is looking to have surgery after the , this surgery center of Dr. Kenneth Hughes in Los Angeles spares no expense.
