With ongoing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), Dialysis Training Institute is closely monitoring the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We recognize the impact and uncertainty COVID-19 is creating in the communities we serve, and our hearts go out to all who are affected.
We have taken a number of precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our Students and Staff. We want to assure you, that Dialysis Training Institute (DTI) is following the CDC guidelines to appropriately respond to the potential public health threat posed by the virus. We are communicating regularly with our accreditors, BPPE, ABHES, CDC and CDPH to keep informed regarding best practices to keep our DTI family safe. We’ve instructed them to:
Stay home when feeling unwell.
Wash hands often and thoroughly.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
Regularly clean computer keyboards, desks and mobile phones with sanitary wipes.
What is Social Distancing?
Social distancing is a practice recommended by public health officials the CDC and CDPH to stop or slow down the spread of contagious diseases. It requires the creation of physical space between individuals who may spread certain infectious diseases. The key is to minimize the number of gatherings as much as possible and to achieve space between individuals when events or activities cannot be modified, postponed, or cancelled. Although the CDPH expects most events with more than 250 attendees to be postponed or cancelled, we emphasize that the venue space does not matter. Achieving space between individuals of approximately six feet is advisable. Additionally, there is a particular focus on creating space between individuals who have come together on a one-time or rare basis and who have very different travel patterns such as those coming from multiple countries, states or counties.
At this time, we are maintaining our normal business hours. If you visit us, please know we remain available to serve you. We've augmented daily cleaning procedures with the use of disinfectant products on high-touch surfaces, have made hand sanitizer readily available, and are actively promoting best practices recommended by the CDC.
