KRMC Implements Visitor Restrictions
Kingman, Arizona – [January 21, 2014)Within the last couple weeks Kingman Regional Medical Center has experienced a very significant increase in the number of cases of Influenza A & B diagnosed within the community. We have also begun to see the first few cases of RSV emerge within the last several weeks.
In response to this development, starting January 22, 2014 through the foreseeable future, Kingman Regional Medical Center will be implementing visiting restrictions. Anyone with flu-like symptoms will not be allowed in the hospital unless they are a patient. Children under age 16 who are not sick are restricted to designated waiting areas on the main floor of the hospital only, including the lobbies and the cafeteria. Visiting restrictions will remain in effect throughout all patient care areas of the hospital. This means no children under age 16 will be allowed to visit patients, including new siblings born at KRMC.
Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times lead to death. Some people, such as elderly, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.RSV (Respiratory Synctial Virus) is also a viral disease; it is one of the most important causes of lower respiratory tract infections in young infants and children. Both these diseases spread mainly through the coughs and sneezes of people who are sick with the virus. However, it is also spread by touching infected objects and then touching your nose or mouth. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. In addition, many people also have reported nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.
We would like to encourage anyone who has not yet received their Influenza vaccine, to do so as soon as possible, especially if you are in contact with unvaccinated children or the elderly.
