In this post, we would like to share with you how Verita Neuro is dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our services.
The response of hospitals and healthcare systems across the world to the COVID-19 pandemic has been remarkable. Numerous leaders from around the globe have commented that more innovative deployment has occurred during the past month alone than what was seen in the previous few years.
It is testament to the professionalism, ingenuity, dedication and tireless commitment of tens of thousands of physicians, nurses, staff, administrative leaders, researchers and policy professionals, as well as the entrepreneurs who have pivoted their offerings to support the worldwide effort.
Alongside the leading medical providers, we believe that the immediate and appropriate response of our health system is to:
- Identify, treat and quarantine those who have tested positive for the virus
- Accelerate the development of viral testing, medical treatments and a vaccine
- Flatten the projected curve of the COVID-19 pandemic through large-scale social distancing recommendations and shelter-in-place orders
- Protect providers and health care workers through the rapid deployment of telemedicine ‘virtual’ visits
- Prepare for the anticipated surge curve of increased demand for hospital beds and ventilator machines.
Your Medical Travel Flexibility
We remain committed to offering you our proprietary spinal cord injury (SCI) treatments such as Epidural Stimulation. Given these unique circumstances, we are making further adjustments to our individual booking policies. We are hopeful that by June/July, international travel restrictions will have been lifted and that we will be able to resume our services.
Therefore, we would like to assist you in any possible way to postpone and/or to secure your treatment date later this year, as we expect a high demand for these limited treatment slots.
In the meantime, our team will work on further improving protocols and treatment offerings. We are also ramping up our online consultation capabilities.
Whilst COVID-19 is slowing down our daily lives, we advise people to use this time to become more informed about our treatments. We will be glad to call you and also arrange a free online consultation with one of our doctors.
Our team remains at your complete disposal and is available to assist you should you have any questions. We will keep you updated on the development of the situation and will be ready to start again with maximum efficacy and safety once it has improved.
We wish you and your families health, wellness and safety and look forward to welcoming you in the foreseeable future.
