Visitor Restrictions Aim to Stop Spread of Flu
Wednesday, January 18, 2017
As our community, like much of the country, grapples with high levels of flu activity, we're taking the following measures to limit its spread and best protect patients and staff at Highland Hospital.
- 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 more than two visitors plus one care giver at any time for each patient.
- People who are ill with flu-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, body aches) are asked not to visit hospitalized patients at all.
These precautionary measures will go into effect at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.
Family members who have questions about visiting their loved one at Highland Hospital should speak with the patient’s nurse or call Highland Hospital’s Infection Prevention office at 585-341-0654.
