RMC Implements Pediatric Visitor Restrictions

RMC Implements Pediatric Visitor Restrictions

February 20, 2024 in Medical/Surgical/Intensive Care, News, OB, Regional Medical Center

Due to increased respiratory illness and respiratory hospitalizations in our community, Regional Medical Center in Manchester is implementing visitor restrictions. At this time, children under the age of 14 will not be allowed to visit patients in the hospital.

The only exception is in the OB Department. Immediate siblings will be allowed to visit their new sibling as long as they are feeling well. It is very important that these siblings are not experiencing any respiratory symptoms. Any ill siblings should not come to the OB Department.

By restricting visitors, our goal is to prevent unnecessary illness from being brought into the hospital. As always, our goal is to protect our patients, community members and staff from getting sick when they are in our facility.

Remember the 3 C’s. You can help reduce the spread of illness by Cleaning your hands often, Covering your coughs and Containing germs by staying home when you are sick.
