While you alone can’t eliminate germs and odors from doctors’ offices, there are a few steps that you can take to minimize the risk of you getting sick while getting medical care: Get a flu shot before ever going into a waiting room. Flu shots can either prevent you from getting sick or greatly decrease the length and severity of flu symptoms that you have. If you can’t avoid the waiting room during flu season, then try to be smart about when you have an appointment. It’s a good idea to schedule annual appointments when the flu isn’t in your area, but if you are sick then try to go to the doctor very early in the morning or late in the day when the waiting room may not be as busy.
Avoid touching items that carry a lot of germs, such as magazines, elevator buttons, and railings. If you do touch them then make sure that you don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, as this will allow bacteria and viruses to enter your body. Additionally, make sure to always wash your hands thoroughly after touching shared items. Take advantage of a “well” waiting room if your doctor provides one so that you are not surrounded by so many germs. While there is no such thing as a germ free dr./doctor office, this will limit your exposure. If necessary, use a mask or clean tissue to breathe to avoid germs in the “sick” waiting area.Consider waiting outside or in your car if the waiting room is very full. Most staff is happy to call you when the doctor is ready,especially if they have been running late. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recently updated their recommendations on how to prevent germs from spreading while you are at the doctor. Not only should staff get all recommended immunizations, but it’s important that waiting rooms have masks and sanitizer provided for patients. Additionally, doctors need to remove all plush toys from the waiting room, as these can be difficult to clean.
Everyone has to go to the doctor at some point, and following these steps will help to ensure that you do not get sick while you are there. No matter whether you need a physical, are ill, or need a sports check-up, staying healthy at the doctor can be tricky. Doctors generally see around 2,300 patients. This means that in a practice with more than one doctor that this number will increase exponentially. Primary care doctors generally see around 20 patients a day, but during flu season that number will jump dramatically, resulting in overcrowded waiting rooms and more germs in the area.Everyone has to go to the doctor at some point, and following these steps will help to ensure that you do not get sick while you are there.

There are some things that you can do to avoid germs when at the doctor, including: Booking an early appointment to take advantage of a clean office Not letting your child play with provided toys Avoiding magazines in the waiting room Washing your hands often and using hand sanitizer Doctors need to be concerned with how to kill bacteria and viruses in doctor’s office, but you can help to protect yourself by following these steps. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Provention) recommends washing hands with soap and water to combat C-diff, as this bacteria is unharmed by alcohol-based hand sanitizers. To avoid C-diff and other dangerous bacteria, make sure that you do not touch items in the waiting room, wash your hands regularly, and do your best to avoid going to the doctor during particularly busy times so that you can avoid contact with as many germs and as much bacteria as possible.

We are thrilled to include the Pyure Odorox hydroxyl technology in our expanded response to the coronavirus pandemic. We have deployed the triage carts to areas that were exposed to Covid both in a reactive and proactive manner. We have also positioned the Odorox hydroxyl generators in key areas like the nurse and wellness areas and meeting rooms where germs are most likely to gather and breed.
We have also successfully dispatched the units to purify the air during water leaks to mitigate odors and airborne mold spores. Therefore, there are multiple benefits to having this technology in our maintenance teamÕs repertoire.
We are very pleased with the results and appreciate the Pyure Odorox equipment being part of our arsenal as we recover from epidemic.
We are thankful that our rep from Bio-Shine prescribed the right machines for the right virus.
Lastly, the latest 3rd party lab test results that Pyure Odorox has performed reaffirms the quick kill of the Covid virus in the air and on surfaces. This has brought a great deal of relief to our staff and parents as we work to return to the full occupancy and resumption of activities in our buildings.

Within the last 18 month, we have purchase the Pyure Odorox equipments. The units have been used for dehumidification in musty rooms and in areas need in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
I found the equipment has performed very well and we hope to purchase additional units in the coming year.
I’d like to take this moment to personal thank BioShine for introducing me to their line of Pyure Odorox equipment and the technology that will help provide reliable performance for my Indoor Air Quality throughout the years.
