At Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower Midtown Clinic, we are working on thorough safety measures against the Novel Coronavirus infectious diseases.
The following is a guide to specific initiatives.

 

Within the facilities

 We check the physical condition, travel history, close contact history with infected persons, etc. of all customers by "Questionnaire about the 2019 Novel Coronavirus infection" and measure body temperature to thoroughly confirm physical condition

・Disinfection with alcohol such as doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons, etc. by alcohol in the reception area, dressing rooms, examination rooms (including medical exam equipment), and consultation rooms (desks and chairs) every time after use

・Opening the door of the entrance to the facility and installing an air cleaner and a humidifier

・Nurses and laboratory technicians wearing gloves, goggles, face shields, gowns, and foot covers when droplet infection is assumed

・Installation of acrylic boards to prevent droplet infection at reception

・Ensure a minimum distance of 1m from the customer as much as possible

・Regular cleaning of the toilet

・Regular disinfection of waiting room chairs and handrails

・Disinfect the stethoscope with alcohol for each customer

 




 

We conduct upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (gastroscope) with thoroughly following the points below.

・To check physical condition before performing the test
・Combined use of regular ventilation, door opening, and air cleaner
・Alcohol disinfection of equipment and beds, etc. every time after use
・Ensuring distance between customers in recovery rooms

As respiratory function tests may spread aerosols to surrounding areas and spread the infection, they are suspended for the time being in principle.
 

 

To our employees

Daily temperature check including non-working days for all staff members(attendance suspended when having a fever), wearing face mask at all times for all staff members, and thorough hand disinfection by washing hands before and after examinations and using alcohol disinfectant

 

Request to customers

・Please wear a face mask to prevent splash infection. (If you don't have one, we will hand it over)
・If you suspect that a the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Infection is suspected by a CT examination or chest X-ray on the day of your consultation, we ask that you discontinue (postpone) your consultation at the discretion of your doctor.
