SEK hospital updates visitor policy

News

SOUTHEAST KANSAS — A Southeast Kansas hospital has updated its visitation guidelines.

Ascension Via Christi in Pittsburg is allowing patients to have one visitor a day from seven a.m. to 7 p.m. Anyone seeking care from the ER in Pittsburg or Fort Scott can have one person with them. No patient who’s confirmed or suspected of having covid-19 may have visitors unless it’s an end-of-life situation – or the patient can’t advocate for themselves.
