Crozer-Keystone Hospitals Limit Visitors to Age 14 and Older, Effective December 23, 2013

Because of the recent increase in the number of patients presenting to area hospitals with influenza-like illnesses, and to protect our patients, their family members and our health care providers, Crozer-Keystone Health System has changed its inpatient visitation policy. 

Effective Monday, December 23, 2013, Crozer-Keystone requires that only friends and family 14 years or older may visit patients in our hospitals. This policy will be in effect for the duration of the influenza (flu) season at all Crozer-Keystone hospitals.

The policy has been changed to help prevent the spread of the flu and protect our patients, their family members and our health care providers. This policy follows the recommendations of the Delaware Valley Healthcare Council as well as the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

  • Visitors who have symptoms of the flu or a cold - such as sniffles, sneezing, aches, fever or cough - should not visit patients or enter the hospital.
  • Visitors should  wash their hands frequently with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Visitors should cover their mouths and noses with a tissue when they cough or sneeze. If they do not have a tissue, visitors are asked to cough or sneeze in their upper sleeves, not their hands.

In certain circumstances, visitors may be asked to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the flu.

For more information about flu prevention, symptoms and treatment, please visit our Flu Information Center at http://flu.crozerkeystone.org.
