As part of our pandemic preparedness planning, our parent company Sonic HealthPlus (SHP) has implemented contingency measures aimed at mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on our workforce and clients with a view to minimising impact on service delivery.
This planning is being overseen by SHP’s dedicated Pandemic Preparedness Team (PPT) whose focus is the development of strategies, policies and procedures designed to support and care for our teams and clients as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop. Working collaboratively with the broader Sonic Healthcare group, the PPT is constantly monitoring World Health Organisation (WHO) and Government updates, distilling information so as to be able to provide the most current and relevant advice to our workforce and clients. Please see our COVID-19 page in the Health Hub section of our website.
SHP’s Pandemic Preparedness Team has instituted a number of business-wide strategies designed to mitigate the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus:
Procurement of adequate supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and medical supplies and consumables;
Reduced face-to-face interaction and increased availability and use of video-conferencing facilities;
Institution of social distancing measures, wherever feasible;
Deferment of all non-essential business travel (international and domestic);
Self-quarantine for all employees and contractors returning from any overseas destination;
Self-quarantine for all employees and contractors with flu-like symptoms or who may have had COVID-19 contact;
Implementation of a travel register for those who have travelled and returned from any overseas destination;
Flexible working arrangements including working from home where and when feasible and appropriate;
Increased cleaning standards across the business;
Reinforcement of infection controls and good personal hygiene;
Suspect case in-clinic isolation measures;
Implementation of enhanced telemedicine protocols to reduce the need for direct patient contact;
SMS notifications to those attending for pre-employment and periodic medicals that they should not attend the clinic if they have flu-like symptoms, have been in contact with COVID-19, or have returned from overseas within the past 14 days;
Strict plans related to Visitor protocols;
Overall, the aim is to ensure our workforce and clients are informed, have clear direction, and the tools necessary to help ensure uninterrupted provision of all business-critical functions.
