Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center are implementing temporary visitor guidelines for all hospital patients. It’s due to an increasing risk of flu.
For the safety of patients, visitors and staff, there will be a maximum of two visitors allowed in a patient’s room at a time.
“The safety of our patients, visitors and staff is always our top priority,” said Robert Healy, MD, chief quality officer at Carle. “With these temporary changes our patients, staff and visitors have less of a chance to catch or spread the flu. These visitor guidelines will be lifted when the threat of flu diminishes.”
