Cold and Flu Season Can Be a Monster

Flu & Cold Season Can Be A Monster

Help us protect our patients, families and staff from RSV and the flu by following these visitation restrictions currently in effect.

  • No visitors under the age of 12 are allowed in patient care areas.
  • Please do not visit patients if you are experiencing fever, vomiting, diarrhea or cold or flu-like symptoms.

How to Report a Compliance Concern

If you are in doubt about an issue or have a concern, ask yourself:

  • Is the action legal?
  • Is it consistent with WakeMed policies and procedures?
  • Is it within WakeMed values?

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no,’ you have a responsibility to share your concerns. WakeMed encourages employee participation in reporting compliance issues or concerns. No retaliation or disciplinary action will be taken toward an individual who, in good faith, reports an issue or concern.

Reporting a Concern

Whenever possible, start with your supervisor or manager.

You may also reach out to the Corporate Integrity & Compliance Department or contact our confidential Compliance Helpline at 1-800-379-0279 or
