In our ongoing efforts to protect our patients and staff, we are now restricting all visitors except under exceptional circumstances. Deference will be given to symptom-free visitors that are visiting patients in the labor and delivery or emergency departments, experiencing end-of-life or in intensive care. Whenever possible, the hospital asks that patients come to the hospital or clinics alone. In addition, our cafeteria, gift shop, valet services and coffee shop are closed until further notice.
The health and safety of our patients and visitors is a top priority at Great Plains Health. We understand how important the support of loved ones and friends is to patients during their hospital stay. However, COVID-19 requires us to temporarily adjust our visiting policy in order to keep our patients and visitors safe from infection.
We continue to implement vigorous policies and procedures to address COVID-19 and are following all governmental recommendations as well. If you have any questions about the updated visiting policy, please ask a member of the patient’s healthcare team. Thank you for your understanding and for adhering to these policies to help us keep our patients, families, staff and visitors protected and healthy during this time.
