Long before the panic of COVID -19 infections peaked in Nashville, the NeuroScience & TMS Centers had safety as a priority. Our TMS operators and staff are certified and have been trained both nationally and locally. The medical director and TMS Coordinator train others nationally and internationally to administer TMS safely.
In the first week of March 2020, with the fears of COVID-19 transmission and concerns of viral peaking in Middle Tennessee, our offices implemented sanitizing practices, before and after each patient’s TMS treatments.
Reducing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is key to safety for everyone. All TMS patients wash their hands upon arrival and departure from the office. The TMS Operators clean the offices with CDC approved formulas that are safe, and they wear personal protective equipment to protect themselves and patients with every treatment. We: 1) do not allow visitors in the TMS Treatment Suites at present; 2) assess patients daily to reduce the chance of transmission of the illness; and 3) want to help you get well and be well. Call us, (615) 224-9800, or email if any questions.
More information on the COVID-19 virus can be found on the CDC’s website.
