Daviess Community Hospital Implements Visitation Restrictions Due to Flu

(Washington, IN) – In response to the increase in influenza cases nationwide and in the Tri-State area, Daviess Community Hospital is implementing hospital visitation restrictions effective Thursday, December 28th. . The restrictions include:

  • No visitors with influenza-like symptoms in the hospitals. Symptoms include cough, sore throat, fever, chills, aches, runny or stuffy nose, and vomiting or diarrhea.
  • No visitors under the age of 15.
  • No visitors other than immediate family or other significant persons as defined by the patient

Visitors are encouraged to wash their hands frequently while in the hospital and wear protective face masks when instructed. Exceptions to these restrictions may be made for cases involving critically ill patients and end-of-life situations.

The flu can cause serious complications and even death, especially in the very young, the elderly, and those with certain existing medical conditions. These measures are being taken in an effort to protect patients, families, and hospital staff. We appreciate the community’s understanding and cooperation.
