In an effort to protect patients, their families and staff this flu season, Firelands Regional Medical Center has begun restricting visitors to people 18 and older and immediate family or immediate support persons.
Firelands Regional Medical Center also asks that anyone experiencing flu symptoms (fever, chills, headache, cough, sore throat, muscle aches) refrain from visiting any patient in the hospital. Many patients are highly susceptible to infection.
As seasonal influenza continues to unfold in the community, it is possible restrictions at Firelands Regional Medical Center will change. If you are planning to see a patient in the hospital, go to www.firelands.com for the most current information about visitor restrictions.
