Across the nation and in the State of Arkansas the number of positive Covid-19, also known as Coronavirus, cases are increasing. Due to this increase, all hospitals are looking at additional ways to prevent the spread. Fulton County Hospital is excited to say we are joining other hospitals across the nation by adding another level of security for our patients, visitors, staff and community. Beginning March 18th, we will be utilizing a check in station. When you arrive on campus, you will see a white unit under the awning of the Emergency Room Entrance. Once inside, you will be greeted by a Fulton County Hospital Team Member. This Team Member will take your temperature and ask a series of questions. Once this short process is completed, you will exit the unit and enter the facility. At this time there are no confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our County. We at Fulton County Hospital are using this time to best prepare for any positive cases that might arise in the future. We appreciate your continued support and teamwork to protect the people of our County. Below is our very own Halle Abney showing off the unit!
March 11, 2020 Governor Asa Hutchinson, through Proclamation, declared an emergency, and
ordered the Arkansas Department of Health to take action to prevent the spread of Covid-19 also
known as the Coronavirus. In conjunction with the Department of Health, Fulton County
Hospital is dedicated to doing our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19. While the hospital has
NOT had a case of Covid-19, the facility is dedicated to protecting our patients; therefore, a strict
visitation policy has been enacted. The policy will go into effect March 13, 2020. Our hospital is
taking the following precautionary measures:
Medically screening all visitors to Fulton County Hospital.
Medically screening all employees of Fulton County Hospital.
Restricting entrances to the facility.
Limiting the number of visitors to 1 visitor per patient per day.
Visiting hours will be 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
No visitors under the age of 18.
Providing ongoing training to staff
Fulton County Hospital would like to ask for the Community's help in preventing the spread of
Covid-19 by staying home when sick, wash hands with soap frequently, avoid people who are
sick, avoid large gatherings, and practice social distancing. If you have travel plans, check the
CDC travel website prior to travel.
We are thankful for the community support to help us stop the spread of this illness. We are
working diligently to provide the best possible standard of care to our patients during this
