by George Hiotis on October 30, 2009

In response to the high incidence of flu in the community, Genesis HealthCare System is requesting the support of the community to protect patients and help prevent the spread of the flu. On Nov. 2, the hospital will limit patient visitation at both its locations, Genesis-Bethesda and Genesis-Good Samaritan to:

• Individuals age 18 and older
• Immediate family only (parents, grandparents and adult children)
• Two visitors per patient
• Those who are free of flu symptoms including cough, fever, sore throat, body aches and vomiting
• Only parents, grandparents and guardians may visit infants in the OB nursery and NICU (special care nursery)
