Due to the recent increase in cases of influenza (flu) in the area, the State of Illinois Public Health Department has advised hospitals to take additional precautions to limit the spread of flu to at-risk individuals. In order to improve patient safety, Northshore is implementing the following visitor restrictions:

  • Visitors under the age of 18 will not be permitted in patient care units; exceptions will be made on a case by case basis at the discretion of the bedside care team
  • The number of visitors will be limited to two per patient at any one time
  • All visitors are required to perform hand hygiene before entering and after exiting patient rooms
  • Visitors with symptoms of acute respiratory illness (including fever, cough, and sore throat) are advised to not visit patients in the hospital
  • Symptomatic visitors that wish to enter a patient room are required to wear a mask
  • Visitors are strongly advised to get the influenza vaccine to prevent infection of themselves and reduce the possibility of transmission to others
