In response to the increase of influenza cases in the region, Ferrell Hospital is following the recommendation of regional health departments and implementing visitation restrictions in our hospital facility.
These restrictions are intended to limit the spread of the flu virus among our patients, visitors, staff, and community.
- No visitors with influenza-like illness, fever, or cough
- No visitors age 15 and under
- No visitors other than immediate family or other significant persons as defined by the patient.
Exceptions to these restrictions may be made for cases involving critically-ill patients and end-of-life situations.
Signs communicating these restrictions are posted at the primary entrances of Ferrell Hospital. Hand sanitizer, masks, and tissues will be available at all entrances.
Thank you for helping us protect our patients.
