Covid-19 Response

COVID-19 Alert - If you have recently travelled outside of Canada or are experiencing symptoms of cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, please do not visit our clinics. Instead, please visit www.ahs.ca/covid19 for screening help.
Please note our booking department will be operating with reduced hours during this period. Our phone lines will be open from 7am to 6pm. Feel free to email booking@mypureform.com during our reduced hours.

To our Valued Patients and to all our Referring Physicians.

During these unsettling times we want to keep you up-to-date on what is happening at Pureform. As you come to our clinics you will see our staff working diligently to protect both patients and themselves. We have a dedicated team that is closely observing the situation and updating our policies and procedures to align with new information which will be updated on this page as new developments arise.

This information is up to date as of April 06, 2020.

Screening Mammography & Bone Density Exams

We have been instructed by the Canadian Association of Radiologists and The Canadian Society of Breast Imaging to postpone screening mammography and bone densitometry exams for 6-8 weeks. These exams can be delayed to help blunt the spread of COVID-19⁠. This advisory states, "Our breast imaging patients are generally healthy, and their condition is deemed as non-life threatening where service can be delayed without anticipated change in outcome."⁠

Patients with symptoms of an immediate health concern (e.g. patients presenting with a lump) will be exempt from this policy and be seen normally.

Safety Guidelines

We have enhanced our protocols to ensure the wellbeing of all our patients and staff, including implementing the following safety measures:

  • Patients are required to answer detailed screening questions when booking their appointment and when they arrive in clinic. We have a systemic flow chart to handle any patient circumstance.
  • Our employees are being screened the same way as patients are, and are required not to come into work if they are feeling ill.
  • Alcohol-based sanitizers are located in and around our clinics, all visitors and employees are required to wash and sanitize their hands regularly. Personal protective equipment is crucial.
  • Staff may be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including masks, face shields and impervious gowns.
  • Patients are required to wear a mask if they appear symptomatic.
  • Social distancing measures will be in place, including isolating symptomatic patients separately from others, increased distancing in our waiting rooms and other measures to spread out patients to maintain safe distancing and reduce chance of COVID-19 spread.
  • As a safety measure we have removed items in our clinics such as toys and magazines and are wiping surfaces and equipment continuously. Social distancing measures have been put into place.
  • Additional cleaning measures have also been taken to ensure treatment areas and change rooms are routinely sanitized above our normal clinical standard of care.

Remember, if you have recently returned from travel outside Canada or have symptoms you must stay home and self isolate, do not go to an emergency room or medical clinic and call 811 for further instructions. You can find updates from the Alberta government on Covid-19 with the following links.
