Regional West expands restricted visitation due to increase of Influenza A cases in the community

Posted: Updated:

Regional West Medical Center is expanding the current restricted visitation to more patient units until further notice, due to an increase of Influenza A cases in the community.

Children under age 15 will not be permitted to visit the Birth and Infant Care Center, the Inpatient Pediatric Unit, ICU, PCU, or the 3rd floor Oncology Unit unless they have a medical condition that requires treatment. This action is intended to reduce the spread of infection to hospital patients and staff.

As always, anyone who is experiencing a fever or cough should refrain from visiting any part of the hospital except when seeking medical care.

Regional West reminds people to protect themselves from the spread of viruses by washing their hands frequently.
