RWMC visitation restrictions continue

Posted: Updated:

Although flu activity is decreasing in Nebraska, upper respiratory illnesses continue to affect people of all ages.

Upper respiratory illnesses include influenza A, influenza B, pertussis (whooping cough), and RSV (respiratory syncytial virus). 

To protect patients and health care workers from the risk of exposure to these highly contagious illnesses, Regional West Medical Center is continuing to restrict visitation until further notice.

Children under age 15 may not 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.
