COVID Visitation Restrictions 1.27.2022
Beginning January 27, 2022, Phillips County Health Systems will discontinue visitors at the hospital due to the recent increase in positive COVID-19 tests in Phillips County. Our total county positivity rate is being reported at 57% effective 1.27.2022.
For the protection of our patients and staff, Phillips County Health Systems has reinstated its no-visitor policy. (If a patient is dependent upon a caregiver or a minor, exceptions for one companion for the patient will be considered. Visitation for end-of-life care patients will also be individually evaluated and accommodated.)
We understand the strain that limited visitation places on our patients and we regret to have to implement this necessary precaution. We will gladly assist in facilitating virtual visits via Facetime and window visits are still allowed, as well.
All patients will be screened by staff upon arrival. The entrance doors of the hospital will be locked to prevent accidental entry into the facility without a screening. Please utilize the buzzer system at the doors to be let into the hospital as a patient. Patients to the Medical Clinic or Rehab are to proceed to registration to receive their screening.
If you suspect you have COVID-19, please call the clinic at 785-543-5211 to receive further instructions on testing services.
Thank you for helping us in being cautious and vigilant during this time.
