Dental World has always been a pioneer in setting benchmarks to ensure safety of its Patients, Doctors, Assistants and other Clinical Staff. Sterilization and Safety has always been top priority across all our clinics. After considering the Standard Operating Procedures and advisories issued by various regulatory bodies; we have established INFECTION CONTROL MANUAL for combatting COVID-19 infection spread and to provide maximum protection, against infection, for patients, personnel, and visitors while in health care setting.
In addition to Standard Precautions, we take Airborne Precautions, or the equivalent, for patients known or suspected to be infected with microorganisms transmitted by airborne droplet nuclei (small-particle residue [5 μm or smaller in size] of evaporated droplets containing micro-organisms that remain suspended in the air and that can be dispersed widely by air currents within a room or over a long distance). Routine Airborne precautions are taken for Chicken pox, Measles, mumps and active Tuberculosis patient.
In addition to Standard Precautions, we implement Droplet Precautions, for a patient known or suspected to be infected with microorganisms transmitted by droplets that can be generated by the patient during coughing, sneezing, talking, or performance of procedures.
In addition to Standard Precautions, we implement Contact Precautions, or the equivalent, for specified patients suspected to be infected or colonized with epidemiologically important microorganisms that can be transmitted by direct contact with the patient (hand or skin-to-skin contact that occurs when performing patient-care activities that require touching the patient’s dry skin) or indirect contact (touching) with environmental surfaces or patient-care items in the patient’s environment.
