Reception

 

Registration of patients

 

Dear Fetal Ultrasound Center patients.

 

Due to the emergency in Estonia regarding the pandemic spread of the SARS CoV-2 virus, several restrictions have been introduced at the Fetal Ultrasound Center.


In the interest of the health of you, your loved ones, and the staff of our Fetal Ultrasound Center, we ask that you take these restrictions very seriously and abide by them.

 

 

  1. Only a patient is allowed to see a doctor. Companion and child (ren) not allowed.
  2. If you are ill or have recently arrived from a foreign country, or have been in contact with the patient with COVID-19, please cancel your appointment at 656 6162 or 521 0046 and ask your administrator for a new date. Patients with viral and cold diseases must not be admitted to our Ultrasound Center!

 

Our decision not to allow support personnel for ultrasound scans did not come lightly, but it is crucial in the current situation. We do not want to exclude fathers and support persons from an ultrasound examination of the fetus, we try to find solutions wherever possible.

 

  • Transmission of ultrasound scanning procedure by Skype;
  • Voice recording ultrasound scan on a DVD or memory stick;
  • Colour fetal ultrasound printout;
  • Send fetal images to your smart device via our Fetal Ultrasonic Center cloud.

 

Although the Fetal Ultrasound Center is safer to come to an examination than doing it at a large hospital, we strive to minimize the number of people who visit our centre. The more people in the waiting room, the more likely they are to be infected and to transmit the virus.

 

  • When the patient comes to the Ultrasound Center, she disinfects her hands.
  • The patient puts a surgical mask on his face as he enters the waiting room;
  • At the Fetal Ultrasound Center, a gynaecologist will perform an ultrasound examination using protective gloves and an interchangeable tablecloth for each patient.
  • At the end of each working day, floors and work surfaces are cleaned with special disinfectants;
  • Receptions are organized at such intervals that no more than two patients wait in the waiting room;
  • In the waiting room, patients can sit at least 2 m apart.

 

Large hospitals in Estonia have reorganized their work to receive coronavirus patients and ensure the sustainability of vital functions.

 

Due to the crisis situation, public hospitals will temporarily not offer the first trimester combined screening test (OSCAR test). It is my responsibility to do my best to help these patients.

 

In this regard, I will extend the appointment times and temporarily stop patient registration for gynecological appointments, 3D ultrasounds, and third trimester examinations, and dedicate myself fully to assisting patients in need of the OSCAR test and fetal development screening.

 

We will temporarily halt the registration of new pregnant women at the Fetal Ultrasound Screening Center. For the timely diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy, I continue to offer ultrasound examinations to detect pregnancy.

 

I ask families to understand the situation. The current situation is not normal. The small staff of Fetal Ultrasound Center will do everything in its power to ensure the safety of the mother and the belly baby.
 

Best wishes,
Dr Marek Šois

Please take your time when coming to an appointment. Regardless of the fact that we have considered half an hour for each patient, some ultrasound test could last longer for objective reasons. Thus it could happen that you should wait for your appointment.

 

In order to make the waiting time as pleasant as possible, we have created a cosy atmosphere in our waiting room – sofa, magazines and WIFI are at your disposal. The mood is set by pleasant background music and our green marsh orchid - Schefflera Amate.
