Effective Thursday, November 19, in response to a recent statewide increase in COVID-19, Okeene Municipal Hospital is moving temporarily to a “no visitor” policy, with some exceptions for cases such as pediatrics, behavioral health, and compassionate care. We will continue to require masks and screening for all entrants. We take our responsibility as caregivers seriously and are constantly evaluating what is most safe for our patients, employees and the larger community, and we look forward to a day when the curve has been flattened and we can welcome visitors back into our facilities.
Compassionate Care - if the patient is actively dying, we can allow two visitors at bedside. May also need this exception when discussing end of life decisions with clinicians.
