Mayo Clinic Announces Visitation Policy Changes

To prevent the spread of H1N1 influenza to pediatric patients, Mayo Clinic has temporarily revised visitation policy in pediatric units. As of Monday, Oct. 26, only the parents or primary caregivers may visit pediatric patients.

"We know this presents an inconvenience for families and friends of our pediatric patients, but we believe it's most important to prevent the spread of H1N1 to our patients," says Randall Flick, M.D. "We will continue to evaluate the situation, and adjust the visitation policy as necessary."
