    At Dublin Shoulder Institute, we are dedicated to providing excellence in shoulder care for our patients.  We are also dedicated to providing a healthy and safe working environment for both our patients and our staff.


    In the current and evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Delaney will continue to provide care.


    Our office remains open normal hours and our staff are fully available for all of your queries.


    We are following national guidelines on COVID-19 and we have resumed seeing patients face to face for clinic visits, with appropriate social distancing and cleaning measures in place, as well as temperature checks on arrival.  Apart from exceptional circumstances, you will not currently be able to bring anybody with you to your appointment in order to limit the number of people coming into the clinic.


    There is also an option to have a telephone or video consultation for any patients who might be vulnerable and would prefer to stay home.


    We continue to accept new referrals, providing diagnosis and treatment plans, as well as offering follow up care for our existing patients.


    It is important that our post-operative patients stay in contact with us so that we can make sure we deliver the proper post-operative care.


    Ms. Delaney will continue to provide the facilty to administer shoulder injections in the rooms.   


    Elective surgeries resumed on July 1, 2020.  All patients undergoing elective surgery will be tested for SARS-CoV-2 ("COVID-19") 48-72 hours prior to admission for surgery.  This will usually be done at the hospital where the surgery is to take place.


    Ms. Delaney and all of the team at DSI would like to sincerely express the depth of our appreciation for your understanding and patience as we all navigate these exceptionally difficult times together.  Please rest assured that the quality of your care will remain unchanged. In fact, as we continue to implement new measures, we hope to improve your experience even further.
