These restrictions are intended to limit the spread of the flu virus among our patients, visitors, staff, and community.
Exceptions to these restrictions may be made for cases involving critically-ill patients and end-of-life situations. Some restrictions may also be modified at The Women’s Hospital to accommodate healthy siblings of newborn babies.
- No visitors with influenza-like illness, fever, or cough
- No visitors age 15 and under
- No visitors other than immediate family or other significant persons as defined by the patient.
Signs communicating these restrictions are posted at the primary entrances of Deaconess hospital facilities. Hand sanitizer, masks, and tissues will be available at all entrances.
Thank you for helping us protect our patients.
