Comprehensive Coronavirus Training

Understanding the importance of equipping their staff with the necessary knowledge and skills to combat the spread of COVID-19, the AltaMed Task Force at Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine has developed a comprehensive training program. This program covers various aspects of coronavirus prevention, including hygiene practices, personal protective equipment (PPE) usage, and proper patient management.

Hygiene Practices

Proper hygiene practices play a crucial role in preventing the transmission of the virus. Our training program emphasizes the significance of frequent handwashing, the appropriate use of hand sanitizers, and the importance of maintaining a clean and sanitized environment. By implementing these practices, we aim to create a safe and healthy workplace for both our staff and patients.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Usage

Our staff is trained on the correct usage of personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves, and face shields. We emphasize the importance of wearing PPE as a preventive measure and provide detailed guidance on proper donning, doffing, and disposal techniques. By adhering to recommended protocols, we ensure the highest level of protection for our team and patients.

Proper Patient Management

Efficient patient management is crucial to reduce the risk of exposure and ensure effective care. Our training includes guidance on triaging patients, implementing social distancing measures, and following appropriate isolation protocols. By adopting these measures, we minimize the potential spread of COVID-19 within our facilities, safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved.

Preparing for Potential Patients

In addition to thorough staff training, Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine has taken proactive steps to prepare for potential COVID-19 patients.

Isolation Rooms

To effectively isolate and manage suspected COVID-19 cases, we have designated special isolation rooms within our facilities.
