LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) — The Logansport Memorial Hospital announced on Friday limited and restricted visitation guidelines due to a spike in influenza cases in the community. According to a press release from the hospital, the following visitor restrictions will be in effect December 30 at 8 a.m.:

  • There is a limit of two adult visitors per patient at a time.
  • No children or siblings under the age of 18 will be allowed to visit at this time.
  • Visitors are urged to perform hand washing frequently, including when entering and leaving the building. Foam dispensers are available throughout the buildings, and are effective against the influenza virus.
  • Visitors who are ill with a fever or other cold or flu-like symptoms including cough, sneezing, running nose, sore throat, vomiting or diarrhea are asked not to visit patients.
  • For visitors to the Family Birth Center where newborns stay, the visitor restrictions are limited to two well adults only, who will be the only two visitors allowed to see the patient – new mom and baby – through their entire stay, from admission to discharge.

If you do decide to visit someone at the hospital during these restrictions, please consider the following:

  • Assess your own health before visiting the hospital. Don’t visit unless you’re feeling well yourself. If you have a contagious illness – a fever, a cold, a cough, or other influenza symptoms – you should postpone your visit until you are well.
  • Do not visit if you are at a higher risk to contract infections. It is recommended that anyone with chronic heart or lung disease, or a weakened immune system should not visit patients with contagious diseases.
  • Always wash your hands upon entering and leaving the patient’s room. Make sure to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, shutting off the faucet with a paper towel, or use the alcohol hand foam available in each patient’s room and rub your hands together until dry. Visitors should clean their hands before and also after they leave the room.
