Broadlawns Medical Center Visitor Guidelines for Flu Season


To protect our patients, family and staff during the flu season, Broadlawns Medical Center will be implementing a temporary restricted visitation policy.

The following restrictions are in effect until further notice:

  • Visitors are limited to immediate family members (patient spouse, significant other, parent, sibling or child)
  • Limit of two visitors per patient at a time.
  • Visitors to isolation rooms must wear a surgical mask as a precaution
  • Visitors who are sick should stay home. Those persons who are ill (have flu symptoms including fever or chills, body aches, headaches and fatigues, sore throat, cough, stuffy nose) will not be permitted in patient rooms.

Exceptions may arise that involve critically ill patients, end-of-life, or other unusual circumstances.  In these cases, the charge nurse or nurse manager may take requests from families to arrange visitation on a case-by-case basis.
