Ten hospitals in eastern North Carolina have set visitation restrictions for children due to the flu epidemic. Jared Brumbaugh has more.
To protect patients from potential exposure, Vidant Health announced yesterday that children 12 years of age and younger are prohibited from visiting at this time. The restrictions are in place at all hospitals in the system, except for Vidant Roanoke-Chowan in Ahoskie. Medical Director of Infection Control Dr. Keith Ramsey says the temporary change will be in place until the flu subsides.
