HCHC announces temporary visitation policyWritten by Theresa Rose on January 13, 2015
MT. PLEASANT – Due to the increased influenza activity in the community, Henry County Health Center has implemented a temporary visitation policy for hospitalized patients. This includes patients in the Inpatient Services Department and Maternity Services Department. Any individuals with respiratory and/or influenza symptoms, such as coughing, fever, aches and nausea are asked and expected not to visit hospitalized patients until further notice. In addition, HCHC’s Park Place Elder Living is also asking that visitors be limited to immediate family members only. The restriction is a safety precaution to maintain a healthy hospital environment for patients, elders, visitors and associates at Henry County Health Center.
