Flu season has hit NC hard this year, and earlier than usual. In fact, this has been reported as the worst flu season in NC in the past ten years. Our emergency departments, urgent care and primary care sites have all reported high flu volumes throughout the system.
In an effort to protect patients, visitors and employees, WakeMed is implementing the following visitor restrictions effective December 31, 2012.
WakeMed Restricted Visitation Policy – Effective December 31, 2012
We understand that these visitation restrictions can be an inconvenience for your family. Please know that we only restrict visitation during the height of flu season in an effort to protect hospitalized patients who are particularly vulnerable to illness. A virus like the flu or a severe cold can significantly complicate recovery and delay discharge from the hospital.
Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation as we respond to this year’s flu season.
