In response to the increase in influenza cases nationwide and in the Evansville area, St. Mary's and Deaconess Hospitals are implementing the following visitation restrictions today:
These restrictions were developed using recommendations from the Vanderburgh County Health Department. Exceptions 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.
