Meanwhile, the hospital continues to restrict visitors and is funneling patients and staff to the main west entrance, where all are screened for symptoms at the door. Access to the hospital’s north campus is limited to staff only.
As a precaution, hospital staff erected a MASH-style screening tent on the east side of the hospital on Monday. “If we would get into having larger numbers of patients, we want to be able to screen them in the tent prior to them going into the hospital,” said hospital CEO Ken Hunter. “We’re watching it closely and I think we’re as prepared as we can be.”
Kimball Health Services continues to take measures to keep our patients and staff safe. With concerns over COVID-19 we ask that all patients enter the hospital and clinic through the main door on the west side of the building. All other entrances are locked and visitors are not allowed at this time. If you need to go to the emergency room - you may ring the bell at the ER door for admission. Our North Campus location is also restricting access to visitors at this time. If you need assistance with your bills, please call the Patient Accounting Office at 308-235-1990. For assistance with medical records, please call Medical Records department at 308-235-1968. Thank you for your cooperation.
