KHMH enters emergency mode, amends visitor policy

Posted: Tuesday, March 31, 2020. 4:54 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: In compliance with the declared national state of emergency being implemented tomorrow, the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Authority (KHMHA)  announced today that its visitor policies have been amended as it enters emergency mode.

“Visitors with respiratory symptoms will not be allowed to visit patients. All persons entering the hospital will have their temperature taken and triaged at nurse’s stations located at the KHMH lobby and Accident and Emergency,” the KHMHA said.

The hospital authority noted that visitors to the A&E Department will be allowed only for minors, patients who require continuous assistance, and patients who are in a critical state. The Nurse–in–charge of A&E will be in charge of issuing the pass for the one visitor.

“This pass will not be interchangeable among family members. This family member will be responsible to pass on information received from the physician or nurse to other family members,” the KHMHA added.

The general wards in the hospital are also limiting visitors to one person at a time and visiting hours have been restricted from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, Sundays through Saturdays. If the patient is in critical condition, additional visitors will be allowed. Patient’s relatives are advised to make arrangements to receive/pick-up their relatives upon discharge from the hospital during visiting hours (12:00 pm to1:00pm) and before 5:00 pm.

The COVID-19 Isolation Area is off-limits to visitors, except for patients who are below the age of 16, who will be afforded one visitor, as the area is strictly being used to manage critical patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 only.
