CCMH Restricts Visiting due to Influenza

Campbell County Memorial Hospital has initiated visiting restrictions due to a recent rise in cases of influenza within the community.  The Maternal Child and Labor & Delivery units at the hospital have restricted visiting to the mother's spouse or significant other and two additional visitors at any one time.  Children under 12 years old are not permitted to visit.  All visitors must wash their hands and wear a mask while visiting in the patient's room. Visiting in Labor & Delivery is always limited to three, including the mother's spouse or significant other.

"Newborns are at a higher risk for contracting influenza than the general population," according to Veronica Taylor, CCMH Infection Prevention Specialist. "November is quite early for visiting restrictions, therefore, we will continue to monitor the cases within the community and look to lift the restrictions as soon as it is safe for our patients and employees."
