Dear Doctor

We would like to update you further on the current situation with COVID-19, as it applies to the Mid North Coast Sleep Clinic.

As approved by the ASA, “Home sleep study diagnostics and therapy set ups are permitted with written, phone or telehealth instruction remotely from staff, and adherence to manufacturer disinfection guidelines for equipment”.

Mid North Coast Sleep Clinic are conducting Diagnostic Home Sleep Studies and CPAP setups within the current COVID-19 guidelines.  We have produced a video of instructions for attaching the equipment for Home Sleep Studies, which allows our staff and clients to maintain social distancing requirements. In cases where it is necessary to setup a patient in the clinic for their study, all appropriate steps are taken to follow the current COVID-19 Health Department recommendations.  All patients have their temperatures taken, their hands are sanitised, and staff wear masks during the appointment.  These guidelines also apply to CPAP hire setups in the clinic.

We have returned to normal consultations in the clinic for CPAP downloads and other types of Consultations, again following the above guidelines to ensure all patients and staff are safe. We continue to be able to monitor our patient's CPAP data remotely and this is an option should the patient prefer not to attend the clinic. Patient are requested not to attend the clinic if they are unwell.

The health of our staff and patients has always been paramount to our clinic, and we will maintain this high standard of hygiene into the future.

Should you require any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards

Jennifer Kent Manager
