It is widely believed that broad testing will be an important part of the fight with Covid 19. We, at Egrari Plastic Surgery Center, have the capability to test our own patients. We are going to use science as our guide to require testing for patients who are having surgery. Our staff has been trained and we have a close relationship with a state-of-the-art lab that will turn around our testing within 24-48 hours. We do not believe in random and unfiltered testing of everyone. But we will make clinical and scientific choices to test the patients who we feel will benefit.

Your safety and the safety of our staff is at stake here, and we are going to do everything possible to assure the best care possible.

As we embark on this and as our knowledge increases, we are going to implement a regular schedule for testing.

Here is what we are planning:

  • Designate particular dates for testing. (Most likely Thursday and Friday)
  • Use of a single isolated room for testing.
  • Staff who is testing will not have any interaction with any patients.
  • Staff will don on approved Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) during the testing.
  • If anyone is positive, they will be immediately notified.

Also, recently we have obtained capability for rapid and immediate testing that we will implement on the day of surgery for patients that have already been tested but who need further confirmation.
