The Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday, 25th March, announced measures to safeguard patients, staff, visitors and others against the Covid-19 outbreak.
All external food, drinks and items, including cards flowers and gifts, have been outlawed until further notice, the hospital said in statement.
“Our new visiting hours are 4pm to 6pm only. Only one visitor allowed per patient in all our wards. This restriction includes our critical care areas, accident and emergency department, Intensive Care Unit and High Dependency Unit. Children below the age of 12 are not allowed in the hospital or any of our satellite clinics unless they are patients.”
The hospital also announced that its Anderson Specialty Clinics would no longer accept walk-ins, but would see patients on appointment except in the obstetric, vaccination, family health/diabetes and well-baby clinics.
Satellite facilities will remain open but will offer only accident and emergency services.
Prescriptions will be done via email and the hospital will deliver at the cost of Ksh400 per trip via G4S.
