Hospital Sisters Health System’s Eastern Wisconsin Division has begun implementing restrictions on visitors in response to the ongoing flu epidemic. The new guideline disallow any visitors under the age of 12 in inpatient areas, any visitors with flu like symptoms, and a limit of two healthy visitors will be allowed at a time per patient. An important note is that the restriction does not effect a pediatric patient that is going to the hospital for an outpatient appointment. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis, depending on the needs of the patient.
