Dear Patient and Families,

To ensure excellent patient care, as well as family and visitor safety, the Southeast Colorado Hospital District team are working around the clock to stay on top of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our community and may update the guidelines as needed to provide the safest care to everyone.

Visiting Hours and Guidelines:

All visitors are required to wear masks over their nose, mouth, and under their chin AT ALL TIMES. Visitors who do not comply with this rule will be asked to leave.

COVID-19 Screening:

Everyone entering the hospital must check in at the Business Office and complete a daily screening survey. The Business Office will direct all visitors after screening is completed. (From 5pm -7am all visitors must check in at the nurse's station for screening). In order to ensure the safety and health of all patients and our staff, people who show signs and symptoms of a communicable disease will not be permitted to visit.

General Visitation: Emergency Room

One healthy visitor per day per patient. Visitor must stay in the room of the patient they are visiting. Do not enter other patients' rooms during the visit. If the patient must leave their emergency room for other medical treatment in the hospital, visitor will not be allowed to accompany them. Visitors should remain in the patient's emergency room until leaving for the day.

General Visitation: Outpatient Services (clinic, therapy, lab, and radiology service)

One healthy visitor per patient. Visitor must stay in the room of the patient during the outpatient service.

General Visitation: Inpatient Area

During this challenging time, we ask that patients and visitors follow the staff's direction and understand that the evolving circumstances will result in variation of visits. Thank you for your patience and for placing your trust in us.
