Holiday Health Appointment Frenzy

As the holidays rapidly approach, people will be making visits back to their families and hometowns, and for your booked out health business, this means one thing. A lot of visitors. In addition to the holiday travel that will undoubtedly occur, there’s one other seasonal certainty you can expect, which will leave your waiting room full and your staff busy. Every year, as we round the corner into a new January 1st, people with employee health benefits realize they only have a few months left to use up their dental points or healthcare deductibles through their health insurance. With hundreds of last-minute bookings, your office will receive a ton of patients- meaning full waiting rooms and little in-between time to thoroughly sanitize and disinfect between clients.

 

As this time of year quickly nears, it’s time your health facility arms up with the necessary safety precautions and solutions to ensure a safe, sanitary visit for everyone, doctors and staff included. Here are a few of the best safety tips and physical barriers out there currently.

 

Getting Through the Door

Of course, as in any health facility, the current standard is to take the patient’s temperature upon arrival, require masks to be worn throughout the duration of the visit (unless unable) and to have the client fill out a questionnaire to understand their recent whereabouts and current health state. This all helps weed out any patients who may be sick or contaminated with a flu or any other virus before potentially infecting others.

 

By Appointment Only

Many health facilities (as well as clothing stores etc.) have decided to only open their doors to customers by appointment only. This helps to space appointments out from guest to guest in order to safeguard everyone visiting. Having less contact or pass-by time limits exposure and the potential for spreading COVID and other seasonal flus.

 

Limiting Visitors

Another way that dental offices, chiropractic practices, and any other medical facilities have managed to keep their doors open and ensure the safety of everyone is to strictly limit visitors to the facility. Some have a max capacity of less than 50% what they used to intake pre-COVID. Now, they only allow a certain number of patients in at one time, and ask people waiting not to stand closely together while waiting outside in line.

 

Physical barriers

Without question, if you run or manage a health or wellness facility or medical practice, by now you’ve understood the need for safety barriers between patients and staff, as well as from those waiting in common spaces. And many facilities have begun outfitting their practice with smart safety dividers to ensure everyone is relatively safe. Unfortunately, not all health centers have been able to find the right solutions that offer flexible installation and a wide variety of options to choose from. Luckily, Space Plus is here to help.

Arming Up With Qubi Glass

The holidays are quickly approaching, meaning the onslaught of festive engagements will undoubtedly put a pause on normal work schedules. Veterans Days, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Hanuka, and Christmas all provide for multiple employee days off, meaning an empty place of business. And as the owner or manager of such an establishment, November and December are perhaps the perfect months to make those interior upgrades you’ve been putting off all year. With the holidays just around the corner, you have enough time to finally plan those interior remodeling/upgrades your business needs in order to meet the demands of the current crisis while everyone is out on vacation. And regardless of what industry you’re in, as a business owner, you can probably guess this pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon. So in order to keep your business afloat during these turbulent times, the best means of survival is preparing your business for the long haul. Ensure that your customers, clients, and employees are all spatially distanced and socially safe when they enter your establishment.

 

So whether you run a restaurant, an office space, own a salon, or manage a gym, the #1 can’t-do-without staple of your business is your ability to welcome customers in through the doors. And if people don’t feel safe, chances are they’re going to bypass your business and go with one of your competitors. Creating a safe space, offering a clean environment, and installing adequate spatial barriers throughout your floorplan are now your best assets for attaining customers! Unsure how to achieve these? Look no further.

 

If You Manage a Workspace

If you manage an office environment or a business that requires your workers’ attendance “in-house”, this virus has been anything but easy for you. And with millions across the globe experiencing the same frustrations, being proactive is the best way to get your business thriving again. After all, your workplace should be a safe and comfortable environment for all of your hard-working employees! One of the best means for protecting your employees from the Coronavirus, as well as the seasonal flu, is to implement spatial barriers throughout an otherwise open floorplan. And although in recent years there’s been a trendy transition towards the modernized aesthetic of an open floor plan, most workers are already accustomed to the idea of cubicles or free-standing walls to separate work stations and maintain focus in the office. Installing these pop-up walls should be no tough sell!

 

The Sliding Door Company has just released a new line of extremely durable, meticulously made Qubi Glass wall partitions. These free-standing wall dividers are a top-grade replacement for cheap cubicle walls. The best part? You can wrap existing cubicles with easy-to-clean Qubi Glass for a swift, inexpensive office upgrade, without needing costly and disruptive construction. This new line of Qubi Glass is offered in an array of different sizes, glass opacities and configurations, so finding the perfect Qubi Glass office divider for your unique space is no problem!

 

If You Run A Restaurant

If you manage a restaurant, the daunting task of outfitting your restaurant for these unprecedented times is no easy thing! And with many states in the U.S. still banning indoor dining, the future of restaurants looks exceptionally troublesome in the coming winter months, especially for those states with months of foul winter weather on the horizon.

 

Yet despite the undulating circumstances, one way that you can safely prepare your indoor restaurant is to use these slower times to outfit your interiors with Standing Wall Partitions, and Qubi Glass Dividers. These are absolutely fantastic at breaking up space, while still allowing visibility between patrons and restaurant staff. Plus, with glass partitions, you won’t risk closing off spaces and visibility within your restaurant like standard wall partitions which can otherwise shrink floor size. People want to feel comfortable surrounded by others while also being safely distanced, and Qubi Glass is a great solution for achieving this medium. These glass dividers are also a total breeze to clean, sanitize, and continuously disinfect, which, these days, is a total necessity in the restaurant industry!

 

By putting these spatial solutions into your place of business, you can safeguard your staff, employees, and your customers against the winter flu season and COVID-19.
