Due to an increase in flu activity in our community, visitor restrictions are being put in place temporarily in sections at Cameron Memorial Hospital in Angola.
Sections of the hospital that are impacted are: Emergency Department, Urgent Care, Medical Surgical Unit, as well as Birthing Center / Obstetrics.
Patients are being advised to wear a mask if they have cough, fever, or other signs of influenza.
Masks must be worn by those with symptoms when they are in public areas such as waiting rooms.
Visitor restrictions are as follows: No visitors under the age of 18 will be allowed. If there are extreme circumstances, this will be vetted by the designated person in charge of the unit. In addition visitors with symptoms of influenza, including cough with fever, chills, muscle aches, will not be allowed to visit. And finally, visitors will be limited to two (over age 18) per patient. Visitors should be limited to essential visitors such as parents, spouse, domestic partner, clergy, or close friend/advocate.
We will keep you updated as to when the restrictions are lifted by hospital officials.
