Wheeling Hospital Issues Visitor Policy Statement as Flu Season Worsens

Posted: Updated:

Wheeling Hospital officials are reminding area residents that only two visitors per patient are permitted at a time as the flu season continues to worsen.

The public is also reminded that Critical Care patients cannot have visitors from 1-4 p.m.

Children age 12 and under are restricted from visiting patient floors. The exception is in Labor and Delivery, where children of any age can visit their mothers and their newborn siblings.

At each of the hospital's entrances are hand sanitizing stations.

Visitors are asked to use the stations' water-free sanitizing gel to clean their hands before visiting patient floors.
