COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Your health and well-being are our highest priorities. At Jhansi Orthopedic Hospital & Research Centre we take infection prevention very seriously and we our team have carefully planned specific guidelines and policies for prevention of infection and environmental safety. We are taking extra precautions to help ensure that we are doing everything we can to minimize any risk to our patients and staff members.

We are implementing the following safety guidelines in our hospitals


1. We are screening, and as appropriate, testing.

Everyone is screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors as they enter our hospital

All patients are tested for COVID-19 prior to hospital admission and 72 hours prior to having a surgery or procedure.

All staff members and doctors are vaccinated. They have completed both doses of Covid-19 vaccination. Any staff reporting any symptoms is isolated, screened and tested for Covid-19.


2. We follow universal masking and wear appropriate protective equipment

All staff members, patients and visitors (only 1 visitor/attendant per patient)must wear masks in the facility

Patients staying in the hospital may remove their mask when alone in their room, but when they are able, must put on a mask when staff, care partners, or others enter the room. This is especially important when staff are in close contact with the patient (closer than 6 feet).

Our care teams treating COVID-19 patients wear personal protective equipment to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


3. We are extremely focused on keeping our facilities clean

Surfaces and equipment are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using products that are effective against a range of organisms and viruses, including the corona virus that causes COVID-19.

We clean our OPD waiting area frequently.

Our exam, procedure, treatment and operating rooms are cleaned and disinfected frequently, including before and after each patient, according to the guidelines of our Hospital infection prevention experts, the updated guidelines from ICMR, from Govt. of India and the WHO.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol is always available.

Our doctors, nurses and all medical staff members sanitize or wash their hands before and after interacting with patients.


4. We minimize the number of people at the facility and practicing physical distancing.

Hospital entry is guarded and has restricted entry point and and we make sure everyone is screened.

We follow all physical distancing guidelines for patients and staff members.

Our waiting room chairs are spaced, and only a few patients are allowed in the waiting rooms at a time.

The number of staff members in exam rooms and operating rooms is limited and only those essential to your care are present. We maintain at least 6 feet between people except during medical care activities.

For now, we are limiting who may accompany a patient into our care facilities. We will return to our patient-centered visitor policies as soon as possible.
