Protect Immunocompromised Patients This Cold and Flu Season

The safety of your patients starts the moment they walk into your clinic. With cold and flu season just around the corner, it’s time to think about how to protect your immunocompromised customers. This post will discuss types of immunocompromised patients and give you a few ways to protect them while they’re in your office.

Types of Immunocompromised Patients

Immunocompromised patients have immune systems that are not capable of protecting them from common illnesses. They get sick more often and may experience worse symptoms than those without compromised immune systems. The four ways people become immunocompromised are:

  • As a side-effect of medications or medical treatment 
  • From an autoimmune disease
  • Congenital disorders
  • As a secondary condition from a chronic illness like diabetes 

Patients over 65 are more susceptible to illness, and those over 80 are automatically classified as immunocompromised. Additionally, patients with chronic stress or certain sleep disorders can experience a weakened immune system.

Protect Your Patients With Impeccable Clinic Hygiene 

As a professional in the medical field, you should do everything you can to protect your staff and patients during cold and flu season. Focusing on improved hygiene in your clinic is one of the easiest protection measures you can take.

Bacteria and viruses easily spread from person to person through touch. As you move from one client to the next, wash your hands with antibacterial soap and warm water. Thoroughly clean all surfaces between clients. 

Your staff should take the same health precautions. Germs can spread at the reception desk just as easily as in the treatment rooms.

Stay Sanitized, Stay Safe

Many areas in the United States have eased restrictions in the wake of the pandemic. However, sanitation stations are still appropriate with patients who need extra immune system support. 

Because they run the risk of catching an illness every time they leave their homes, providing sanitizers for immunocompromised patients and/or wearing a mask while working with them can show your support. Your role is to protect them from all sorts of illnesses and shows you actually care about their well-being.

Provide Adequate Air Circulation With Aerus ActivePure Technology

To ensure safe air quality, invest in a high-quality air purification system. It’s a great way to help immunocompromised patients stay healthy during cold and flu season. 

The Aerus ActivePure Technology is NeuPTtech’s top choice for air filtration. It’s the same system used by leading healthcare facilities. With this addition to your clinic, you can focus on treating your physical therapy patients without worrying about illness spreading through your practice during cold and flu season.

Jason Waz, CEO of NeuPTtech, has been personally using the active pure system to keep his staff, his family and his clients safe from COVID. He commented,

Active Pure has also helped keep my biggest asset (my staff) safe without any events of illness spreading since Covid began. I now have a whole home system in my family’s residence and we have been extremely healthy since adding it nearly 2 years ago.

ActivePure Technology kills airborne COVID germs within one minute and needs just a few hours to kill COVID germs on surfaces. It also provides protection from many flu mutations that cause illness during winter months.
