What is 4 Life Doing Differently?
4 Life continues to be very pro-active in protecting our staff and patients from COVID-19 and attending appointments is safe. Just some of the measures we have taken include:
Antimicrobial Barrier Application 4 Life has sourced a specialty antimicrobial which bonds to a treated substrate making the entire material itself antimicrobial for up to 35-days. This has been applied to all commonly contacted surfaces such as treatment tables, waiting room chairs, door handles, face cushions and so forth.
Hand & Personal Hygiene Hand Hygiene is the most effective way to protect against infections and includes both regular hand washing applying alcohol-based hand sanitiser. 4 Life will provide Hand Sanitiser for all patients and staff to use whilst at our facilities
Increased Cleaning and Disinfecting Efforts In addition to the abovementioned antimicrobial barrier application, 4 Life will use antiviral cleaning sprays between all patients and in common touchpoints around the clinic.
Elimination of Soft Finishings At 4 Life we like to provide the "nice extras" such as the daily newspaper, current magazines, soft terry-towelling on our treatment tables, and a mentos mint on the way out. Unfortunately, these and other similar finishings will not be provided during the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to reduce vulnerabilities in our cleaning and sanitation efforts. We recommend that you bring your own towel to your appointment for comfort.
Laundry Sanitiser All linen that is used at 4 Life will be sanitised during the cleaning processes.
Finally, please be assured that 4 Life takes the health and wellbeing of our clients very seriously. All of the above measure, and many others, are taken not to raise alarm, but rather to provide comfort to our staff and patients that our clinic is a leader in healthcare provision and a safe choice for your allied health needs.
