MOORESVILLE, NC (January 11, 2013) - For the protection of our patients and visitors, Lake Norman Regional Medical Center is temporarily restricting all visitors under 16 years of age. To help protect our patients and staff we recommend:
Please do not visit the hospital if you have symptoms of the flu. Signs of the flu include fever, chills, fatigue, headaches or body aches and pain, coughing, sneezing, runny nose or sore throat.
Please limit visitors to two adults per patient at any time. Limiting the number of visitors per patient will help control the spread of the illness.
Please do not bring your children on hospital visits. Since children are more likely to get sick and spread the flu, it is best to limit their exposure to others in the hospital.
Please wash your hands frequently. Look for hand-washing stations around the hospital, and use them often. Please make sure to clean your hands when entering and leaving the hospital either by washing with soap or rubbing your hands together with hand sanitizer.
