Banner puts visitation restrictions in place over flu concerns

PHOENIX -- Banner Health hospitals will put visitation restrictions in place Monday to fight the spread of influenza, the company said in a release.

"The health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees is a primary concern of Banner Health," said Joan Ivaska, senior director of infection prevention for Banner Health, in the release. "Following these restrictions and procedures will ensure we provide the safest environment possible to receive and provide care."

Visitors who are displaying flu symptoms -- fever, cough, vomiting or diarrhea -- are asked to not visit patients.

Children under 13 are asked not to visit. If they do, parents must supervise them at all times.

Siblings who do not have cold or flu symptoms will be allowed to meet a new baby. However, they may have to pass a health screening first.

Visitors are also encouraged to wash their hands often or use hand sanitizer.
