As cases of flu continue to increase in San Diego County and elsewhere, Scripps Health is taking appropriate measures to maintain a healthy environment for patients and staff.
San Diego’s NBC affiliate reports on the newly-added restrictions to Scripps’ existing patient visitation policy. All visitors will be screened for flu-like symptoms and those showing signs will be asked to leave. In addition, children 14 years old and younger will not be allowed to enter the hospital unless they are a current patient or have a medical appointment.
