Hospital Visitation Policy Restriction Lifted for Visitors 14 and Under
Effective Friday, March 28, 2014, Crozer-Keystone Health System is lifting its Hospital Visitation Policy Restriction for visitors 14 and under, implemented in December 2013 to reduce the spread of influenza.
After consideration of current regional trends in influenza infection rates, Crozer-Keystone Health System Infection Control has determined that these restrictions are no longer necessary.
Crozer-Keystone hospitals will return to their previously existing visitation policies. Important features of these policies are as follows:
- Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
- Visitors with cold symptoms or other infectious diseases should avoid visiting patients.
- Visitors are asked to use good hand hygiene when visiting patients in hospitals.
- Visitors must follow all appropriate isolation and/or contact precaution procedures when visiting patients.
