Visitor Restrictions in Effect on 3B Medical Unit
June 8, 2012 - Visitor Restrictions In Effect on 3 B Medical Unit at SAH...
June 8, 2012 - Due to an outbreak of Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci on the 3B Medical Unit (B Wing, 3rd floor inpatient unit), visitor restrictions have been implemented. Visiting hours on this unit are restricted to between 2 and 4 p.m. and 6 and 8 p.m. daily until further notice. Only one visitor per patient will be allowed, with no visitors under the age of twelve.
This action is necessary to protect the well-being of patients, staff and visitors. However, exceptions may be made on compassionate grounds.
Regular visiting hours and rules are in effect for all other areas of the hospital.
We ask all visitors, including those to other areas of the hospital, to use discretion and refrain from visiting if experiencing any symptoms of illness. Those who do come to the hospital are asked to wash their hands often with the solution provided throughout the facility and to be respectful of any other direction or requests from staff.
SAH will continue to monitor the situation closely, including an ongoing review of the visitor restriction status, and advise the public immediately of any changes.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank everyone for their cooperation.
