Schneck Medical Center Limits Visitors Due to Flu
January 08, 2018
Schneck Medical Center has implemented visitor restrictions, effective immediately, to help protect patients, staff, and the community from the spread of influenza.
 
No more than three visitors may be admitted to a patient’s room at one time. Visitors include immediate family and significant others as identified by the patient. Visitors must also be 18 years old and older.
 
Anyone with the following symptoms is asked to refrain from visiting patients:
  • Fever and/or chills
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle aches
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
 
All visitors must wash their hands (soap and water) or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after visiting a patient. Hand sanitizer can be found throughout the hospital as well as outside each patient’s room.
 
“We’ve seen an increase in the number of people with flu-like symptoms in the last few weeks,” said Stacy East, Infection Preventionist at Schneck.
 
East urged the public to get the flu vaccine as soon as possible in order to protect themselves for the rest of the season.
