OLYMPIA FIELDS, Illinois - Due to the increased number of influenza-like illness we are seeing in the hospitals and the number of cases within the community, we will be instituting modified visitor restrictions on the inpatient units at Franciscan Health Olympia Fields. This includes:
- Limit 2 visitors per patient
- Please do not visit if you are sick.
- Masks are available for visitors to wear while in the hospital and please wash hands as a precaution - for your own safety and the safety of our patients.
We also encourage good hand hygiene and respiratory protection with the “Cover Your Cough” behavior to help manage exposure to illness during this time.
For more information on influenza please read this handout from the CDC.
