At Gold Country Hearing, our number one priority is to ensure the health and wellbeing of our patients; it’s important that our community, during the global crisis, continue to follow our easy 6 stage guide to protect yourself and the most vulnerable people in the local area.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, we at Gold Country Hearing have implemented a 5 stage procedure as a way of reassuring all visitors and to ensure that our patients and local population continue to live full, healthy, happy lives.

Gold Country Hearing, Our 5 Stage – Step by Step Guide.

Stage 1. Hand Wash On Arrival

We’re positive that by now, everyone is carrying an army platoon supply worth of sanitizer; however, every one upon arrival at our centers must approach our check-in desk and use the hand sanitizer provided. A quick squirt in the hands and a thorough rub in, and that’s it, your hands are sanitized.

Stage 2. Patient Health Check Prior to Arrival

All guests and patients are being asked to review our “safety criteria” before attending our premises. We simply must insist that you don’t attend if you are suffering from any of the following, a fever running at 100.4 or above, a cough, runny nose, or shortness of breath.

If, for instance, you find yourself suffering from any one of these ailments, we kindly insist you reschedule your appointment, contact us here, and someone will return your message within 24 hours.

Our strict guidelines also insist that you reschedule your appointment if you have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus, contact your nearest Gold Country Hearing for advice on how best to reschedule your appointment following that situation.

Stage 3. Thorough Cleaning Between Appointments

To reassure all visitors and patients, we have increased the time between each appointment, providing us with additional time to sanitize all surfaces thoroughly.

This ensures that all patients are stepping into a sterile and safe environment. From the patient’s chair, headphones, right down to pens, all our equipment will be thoroughly sterilized before each appointment.

At Gold Country Hearing, your health and wellbeing will always be our number one priority.

Stage 4. Virtual Appointments

We understand that because of the current global crisis, our patients are looking at ways of minimizing any unnecessary risks to themselves or their families, and that’s why we’re happy to offer Virtual Appointments.

Thanks to our exclusive service, patients can receive the same Gold Country Hearing quality of care and attention, but from the comfort and safety of their own home.

Using easily accessible technology (smartphone, tablet, home computer, etc.) and our easy to follow instructions, you can video connect with one of our expert staff.

Removing the need for any unnecessary trips in the process.
