Visitation Restriction at Dubuque Hospitals

Visitation Restriction at Dubuque Hospitals

SHARE

At the direction of Dr. Honorio Caceres, chairperson of the bi-hospital infection control committee, Mercy Medical Center – Dubuque and Dyersville and UnityPoint Health Finley Hospital will implement a visitation restriction effective January 30, 2017. This restriction is to limit patient visitation due to Influenza A in our community.

All children under age 14 and any individuals (all ages) 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. The restriction is a safety precaution to maintain a healthy hospital environment for patients and visitors and employees at Dubuque area hospitals.
