Flu Visitation Restrictions in Effect

Our primary goal at Highland Hospital is to provide the best quality of care in an environment that is safe for our patients. To protect them, at times we must manage their exposure to illnesses that are easily spread, such as the flu.

We carefully monitor flu activity levels at the hospital and in the community. When certain thresholds are met, we must take action to halt the spread and limit the number of visitors allowed in our patient areas.

Please help us protect our patients from influenza. The following Flu Visitation Restrictions are in effect:

  • No more than two visitors plus one designated caregiver per patient at a time.
  • No visitors under the age of 14 are permitted in the hospital, except healthy siblings of newborns under the care of the Family Maternity Center.
  • No visitors with symptoms of fever, cough, body aches, or a sore throat; they may visit when symptom-free for 24 hours.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
