In response to the rising number of flu cases in New Jersey, Christ Hospital is taking steps to protect our patients and staff by temporarily restricting visitors under the age of 18.
Effective November 11, 2009, visitors under the age of 18 will not be permitted to visit hospitalized patients, including the Maternity and Pediatric Units.
We also ask that visitors with the following flu-like symptoms refrain from visiting:
These temporary guidelines are in accordance with New Jersey Department of Health and CDC recommendations and have been implemented to keep your loved ones and our staff safe from flu. You may be asked to wear a mask upon entering the hospital and visiting on patient floors and rooms.
We appreciate your cooperation and thank you for understanding.
