Dear Patients,

Wasatch Infusion is open for business and committed to the health and wellbeing of our patients. COVID-19 has prompted us to implement a broader screening process and more robust sanitation procedures that are in the best interest of our staff and patients, especially those who are immunodeficient.  

Wasatch Infusion has implemented additional safety measures throughout all of our facilities:
  • Employees are required to report COVID-19 exposure or symptoms immediately and must quarantine until they test negative
  • All employees and guests are required to wear masks at all times when in common areas and throughout all clinical areas of the building
  • Floor stickers remind all employees and guests to social distance a minimum of 6 feet 
  • Additional COVID-19 Safety Reminders have been placed throughout our facilities and patient rooms
  • Hand sanitizer and gloves are available for all employees and guests at all times
  • Our electronic intake system is sanitized after every use
  • Each one of our private suites is sanitized after every patient visit, including all door handles, chairs, tables, and other surfaces
  • Additional sanitization is done by after-hours cleaning crews
New and existing patients may be asked about exposure and symptom questions before scheduling or receiving their infusion. Depending on the results of their screening, patients may be asked to reschedule their appointment or may be able to proceed with their infusion therapy in our private and sterile infusion rooms.  

Wasatch Infusion urges all patients who may have been exposed to, or are showing signs of COVID-19 to contact their physician or the Utah Health Department immediately and to not enter our facility. Within our facilities in Murray, Tooele, and Layton we have begun an increased regimen of cleaning and sanitization in all of our patient rooms, restrooms, and lobby areas. 

At this time, we are screening all patients for exposure and symptoms of COVID-19 prior to every appointment or infusion. Our facilities and staff have been equipped to screen patients and visitors in the following ways:
  • You must wear a COVID-19 type mask upon entering our facility, and throughout your infusion. If you do not have a mask, one can be provided to you.   
  • You may be asked to sanitize your hands during your visit.
  • We will take your temperature immediately upon entering the facility. If you have a fever of 100.4 or higher, you may be screened further regarding your current condition or asked to reschedule your appointment.   
  • Guests and children will not be permitted into the facility unless they are providing the patient with mobility assistance.  
You will be asked the following questions during scheduling and prior to entering the infusion suites:
  • Do you have any symptoms of COVID–19 (CORONAVIRUS)?
  • Have you had close contact with someone with a known or suspected case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days? 

In addition, we are increasing our safety recommendations for all patients, employees, and visitors: 
  • Practice proper hygiene, including frequent hand washing and sanitizing 
  • Wearing a surgical mask to avoid exposure where appropriate 
  • Keeping appropriate social distances (6-10 feet if possible) 
  • Follow local governmental suggestions and mandates per the State of Utah. 
 
For more information visit the CDC or Utah Health Department websites or call the Salt Lake Health Department at 385-468-4100.

As always, our expertly trained clinicians and intake professionals are here to assist if you have any questions about your infusion therapy needs.

Thank you for trusting us with your health!
