Flu-Related Visitation Restrictions Now in Effect

As WakeMed continues to monitor seasonal flu, we have started broad visitation restrictions in all patient areas to protect patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors from the spread of illness. The following visitation rules are now in effect:

  • No children under the age of 12 are allowed to visit patient care areas.
  • No visitors who are experiencing fever, vomiting, diarrhea, cold or flu-like symptoms are permitted to enter patient care areas.

Limited exceptions may be made and must be approved by the Medical Director for Infection Prevention and the enterprise Chief Medical Officer. See the employee update on MyWakeMed for additional details.

Changes to Occupational Health Deadlines

In response to feedback from staff and to streamline the tracking process, several changes have been made to the Occupational Health screening deadlines, effective immediately:

  • All annual Occupational Health requirements (including the TB screening form) must be completed during the month in which the employee was born. The deadline is now midnight on the last day of the month in which an employee was born; not the day they were born.
  • If annual screenings are not completed by midnight on the last day of the month in which the employee was born, the employee will not be allowed to work until they become compliant. Employee Relations will work with management to decide if disciplinary actions and/or termination should occur.

Additionally, while screenings are still required for all staff, Occupational Health & Safety screenings and requirements will no longer be a factor in WakeShare eligibility (beginning with FY2020).
