The health and safety of our communities remain top priority as we continue to work tirelessly to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are actively taking measures in doing this by carefully screening each patient for covid symptoms before they enter our facility, having our healthcare workers wear masks, and sanitizing all of our work areas with hospital-grade disinfectant.

Universal Masking

Visitors required to bring their own mask. The health and safety of our patients, visitors and clinicians remains a top priority. In line with the latest CDC COVID-19 guidelines, we are asking everyone within our hospitals to wear a mask including our visitors. Visitors are required to wear a mask that covers both the nose and mouth. Visitors are responsible for acquiring their own masks (cloth masks are allowed).

Patients limited to one visitor per day (returning visitors will be screened daily). Visitors, prior to entering the patient floor, will be required to undergo a screening process (4 questions) and will be asked to sign-in and wear a visitor color wristband. Individuals under the age of 14 and individuals 65 years of age and older are not allowed into the hospital. Additionally, visitor temperature will be taken during the screening process. Individuals with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted into the hospital.


CHRISTUS Spohn Health System Statement Regarding Rumors of COVID-19 Spread

We understand that the potential impact of COVID-19 and its presence in Kingsville and surrounding areas is a constantly evolving situation. The expanding and changing nature of the situation could lend itself to speculation and rumors of the Coronavirus spreading throughout our community. However, CHRISTUS Spohn Health System stresses the need to avoid sharing unfounded speculation and rumors, even in a joking manner, across social media platforms.

There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any CHRISTUS Spohn Health System facility. However, in the event that possible coronavirus patients need hospitalization after screening, we will work closely with local, state and federal authorities to confirm any such cases with the public.

Our number one priority is for the safety of our patients and their families who we are privileged to care for. As the COVID-19 virus continues to threaten our nation and community, we are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients. We have implemented new patient visitation guidelines and are now screening all visitors who enter our hospitals.

CHRISTUS Health currently convenes daily, sometimes more, to check in on our emergency preparedness plans. We have had many hands on deck during this process. Nearly everyone — from physicians and nurses, quality and safety experts to those responsible for ordering supplies and keeping the hospital clean — is involved in making sure we can do best for our patients our Associates and this community we serve.

CHRISTUS Health Statement Regarding COVID-19

CHRISTUS values the importance of collaboration and coordinated action for the identification and care of those patients exhibiting signs of the COVID-19. Which is why we continue to follow CDC interim guidelines and work non-stop, in partnership with local, state and federal government authorities. We are fortunate to be part of a local health care community committed to responding to the needs of these patients in the safest manner necessary.

In the event that possible coronavirus patients need hospitalization after screening, we have identified a portion of our facility as the best place to allow us to isolate and safely care for any potential patients without risk of transmission to other parts of the facility.

At CHRISTUS, we have always screened patient to our clinical points of access for international travel, to assess for various evolving infectious disease risks, including this one.  If a patient meets the current CDC criteria, and is exhibiting symptoms consistent with the virus, we will isolate the patient in a private room and take proper respiratory precautions to safely assess and treat them 

If you are ill with fever and cough or shortness of breath and have had travel to any region that has known community spread of coronavirus, please contact your primary care provider before coming to the clinic so we can be sure to provide you with the best care possible while doing everything we can to keep our community healthy.

It’s still flu season. We continue to encourage all our patients and the community to practice good respiratory hygiene habits, like washing hands frequently and covering mouths while coughing especially during times like this where catching the flu is a far greater risk.

In summary, the best things you can do to prevent the spread of illness are:

  1. Wash your hands well before eating, drinking, or touching your face
  2. Get your annual flu shot and
  3. Get a pneumonia shot if you have not already and are above the age of 65 or have diabetes or other illnesses that affect your heart or lungs.

CHRISTUS Health currently convenes daily, sometimes more, to check in on our emergency preparedness plans. We have had many hands on deck during this process. Nearly everyone — from physicians and nurses, quality and safety experts to those responsible for ordering supplies and keeping the hospital clean — is involved in making sure we can do best for our patients our Associates and this community we serve.
