KDMC Enhancing Security Measure in Maternal Health Units

ASHLAND, KY — King’s Daughters is introducing new security measures to protect patients in maternity and pediatric patient care units.

Visitors to the Mother/Baby Unit, Labor and Delivery Unit and the Pediatrics Unit will request permission to enter the unit by pressing a button and providing:

  • his or her name
  • desired unit to visit
  • name of patient he or she would like to visit

“Our maternal and child health areas have some of our most precious patients,” says Scott Hill, KDMC Safety/Security director. “Newborns, new mothers and children require additional safety during their stay with us, which is why we’ve introduced additional security measures for these areas.”

The Pediatrics Unit, Mother/Baby Unit, and the Labor and Delivery Unit are located on the third floor of the medical center. Regular visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., however, individualized visitation schedules are available.
