Help keep our patients safe during flu season

For the safety of our patients, visitors and employees, Children’s has implemented increased visitor restrictions.

Inpatient Areas:

  • Only two visitors, including a parent or guardian, per patient will be allowed at one time.
  • Children younger than 12 years old will not be allowed in patient areas.

Emergency Room:

  • Only one parent or guardian should accompany each patient in the Emergency Room and waiting areas.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping our patients get better!

Families & Guests

It’s important for your child to see friendly, familiar faces while in the hospital. It’s also important to make sure that patients are not exposed to any contagious illnesses like the seasonal flu, a cold, or any other infections.

When you arrive, all family, friends and guests will be asked a series of screening questions by our guest relations staff. If guests are found to be free of illness, badges will be issued to indicate that you have been screened. Please wear your badge at all times when you are in the hospital.

Please do not visit the hospital if you are suffering from or have been exposed to contagious illnesses, such as a cold or chicken pox. To help you plan ahead, please do not visit if you have:

  • A fever of 100 or higher

  • A cough that produces mucus

  • Diarrhea or vomiting

  • Been exposed to Tuberculosis (TB), chicken pox, Measles, Mumps and/or Rubella

Exceptions may be made for patient parents and legal guardians. Please inquire about exceptions at the front desk when you arrive at Children’s.
