Jackson Hospital Restricts Visitation during Flu Outbreak

Hospital news | Thursday, September 3, 2009

Due to the current outbreak of H1N1 (Swine) flu in the community, Jackson Hospital is restricting visitors under the age of 18, and those with flu-like symptoms, effective immediately. The hospital has chosen to implement this policy to help reduce the transmission of flu among patients, visitors and employees. According to statistics from the Alabama Department of Public Health, 65% of confirmed H1N1 flu cases in the state are in children 18 years and younger.

“The well-being of our patients is our main concern,” said Cynthia Dixon, Jackson Hospital vice president of patient care services. “We appreciate the public’s assistance in helping us control the spread of the flu virus.”

To help minimize the spread of disease, the hospital is asking all visitors to follow these guidelines:

  • Please do not visit the hospital if you are sick.
  • Please keep the number of visitors and the length of visits to a minimum.
  • Visitors should wash their hands before and after visiting a patient. Use soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (located throughout the hospital).
  • Cover your cough. Cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue. Use your shirt sleeve, not your hands, if a tissue is not available.
  • A good alternative for many visitors is a telephone call.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Alabama Department of Public Health offers tips for prevention, symptoms and additional information on the H1N1 virus. Visit the CDC flu information website, www.flu.gov, or the Alabama Department of Public Health, www.adph.org.
