Dr Stuart Moir and Echo Tech Michelle Anderson devised a barrier method

Echo staff and patients safety

For the protection of our patients, staff and broader community, due to the spread of Covid-19, Melbourne Heart Care’s Dr Stuart Moir and Echo Tech Michelle Anderson devised a barrier method to improve safety for sonographers and patients during echo studies at our Holmesglen Private Hospital rooms last Thursday. This barrier method combined with a mask, hand hygiene and patient screening has been suggested as a means of preventing droplet spread, we hope this will reduce the risk to our staff and patients during this crisis.
