Freebase

  1. Clinic

    A clinic is a health care facility that is primarily devoted to the care of outpatients. Clinics can be privately operated or publicly managed and funded, and typically cover the primary health care needs of populations in local communities, in contrast to larger hospitals which offer specialised treatments and admit inpatients for overnight stays. Some clinics grow to be institutions as large as major hospitals, or become associated with a hospital or medical school, while retaining the name “clinic."

Examples of clinic in a Sentence

  1. Mark Fishman:

    We have glimpsed the power of CRISPR tools in our scientific programmes in NIBR and it is now time to explore how to safely extend this powerful technology to the clinic.

  2. Shannon Farrell:

    She has swabbed countless people at the clinic since, wondering if shes exposing herself to the virus. Like many of her colleagues working in the COVID-19 world, she takes every possible precaution ; she showers at work after her shift, trying to ensure that she doesnt expose her parents to anything. Her work clothes go immediately into the washing machine. I just feel like this is such an unknown, said Koplin, who plans to return to bobsled next fall assuming bobsled season happens. Theres so many uncertainties and Im like, I dont want to take any chances in the sense that Im dragging this super-contagious virus around my house. Bren Jensen can relate. Shes a COVID-19 survivor. Being a survivor is her specialty. She lost a leg in a lawn-mower accident as a child and went on to represent the U.S. in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympics. She caught the virus, and a doctor that she shares an office with tested positive soon afterward. Theres no way of knowing how Bren Jensen got it or if she transmitted it to anyone else, but she was racked by guilt anyway. Ill be the first to admit that I was very skeptical, Bren Jensen said. Those first couple of weeks, I was even telling patients, Theres really not much to be concerned about unless you have underlying health issues or chronic lung disease. And then I came down with it and I realized how serious it was, because Im completely healthy and it took me down. She stayed down for three weeks, then returned to work. Her office has gone to whats called virtual visits, where patients are being seen remotely. Thats been a lifesaver just to keep everybody else calm, Bren Jensen said. Calmness is something Shannon Farrell has not found easily. Last week, she and another nurse held a mans hand as Shannon Farrell died, separated from Shannon Farrell family because of the threat of the virus. Easter dinner with her own family a couple days later was held outside, in a Wendys parking lot, social distancing practiced as they stood around their cars. The strangeness has been impossibly hard for Shannon Farrell to process. She knew as a high school junior, seven years ago, that this was her calling. But this may be beyond any worst-case scenario she envisioned. I helped to take care of my grandmother when she was sick with leukemia, and I remember liking that feeling of being helpful and making her feel more comfortable.

  3. Qendrim Agushi:

    If you have money you can buy justice here, if you have money you can buy health because you go to a private clinic. I don't have money. My vote is the only thing I have.

  4. Richard Isaacson:

    While this was a longer-term study, these results parallel findings from our clinical research in the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic, where people who made dietary and other lifestyle changes showed cognitive improvements in 18 months, future studies will help to clarify how long a person needs to make a dietary change before seeing an impact on cognitive outcomes.

  5. Siegfried Fischbacher:

    Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend, from the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried. CELEBRITIES WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn (R) attend the 19th annual Keep Memory Alive 'Power of Love Gala' benefit for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health honoring Andrea Bocelli and Veronica Bocelli at MGM Grand Garden Arena on June 13, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Getty) Roy was a fighter his whole life including during these final days.
