Clarian Health restricts hospital visitsts
Updated: May 1, 2009 05:49 PM EDT
Indianapolis - As a precaution against the potential threat of the H1N1 virus, Clarian Health is temporarily restricting non-essential patient visitors at its downtown hospitals - Methodist, Indiana University (including the IU Simon Cancer Center) and Riley Hospital for Children.
Only essential adult visitors - parents, spouse/domestic partner and spiritual counselors - will be allowed to visit hospitalized patients.
This temporary policy is effective immediately (Friday, May 1st, 2009).
In addition to the restriction of non-essential visitors, Clarian is asking families to limit the number of people accompanying patients to the emergency room; outpatient surgery waiting rooms and procedure areas; and primary care and specialist physician offices.
The decision to temporarily restrict non-essential visitors will be reviewed on a daily basis and lifted at the earliest appropriate time.
