To protect our patients, families and health care workers during the global outbreak of COVID-19 a temporary "caregiver only" visitor restriction is being implemented at KSB Hospital.
Effective immediately (3/12) the following temporary visitor restrictions will be put into place:
Only one primary caregiver is allowed within KSB Hospital. Primary caregivers include, but are not limited to:
Other defined caregiver
Primary Caregivers Guidelines:
18 years of age and older (including sibling caregivers)
Siblings are not allowed unless 16 years of age or older and defined caregiver
Always remain in patient room as appropriate
Limit movement within the facility and avoid common areas
Free from illness such as fever, sore throat, cough, diarrhea, vomiting or runny nose
Exceptions may be made in certain situations and can be discussed with patient care teams.
All caregivers are required to wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand foam/gel upon entering and exiting patient’s room. We understand these visitor restrictions may be difficult for you. While we are committed to providing a family-centered care environment, right now restricting visitors is in the best interest of our patients and staff.
Visitor restrictions are temporary and subject to change as necessary. Thank you for your cooperation in this effort. For up-to-date information related to COVID-19, please click here.
