Hospital Visitor Restrictions

 

To protect everyone from Influenza, Hutchinson Health has the following hospital visitor restrictions:

  • No one with current symptoms of illness will be permitted to visit (i.e. fever and cough or sore throat, body aches, headache, tiredness, and stuffy nose)
  • Staff members who observe visitors with obvious symptoms of illness will ask that you leave and return when you are well, for the safety of all our patients and staff.
  • All visitors, including children, are required to perform diligent hand hygiene before and after interacting with patients.
  • At the discretion of the Clinical Care Team, only immediate family members or primary caregivers will be permitted to visit our high-risk patients (i.e. Oncology, Newborns)

Wisdom Wellness Tips

I’m Peg Christenson, Registered Dietetic Technician, at Hutchinson Health bringing a new program to you called Wellness Wisdom. I will share words of wisdom on various topics and am kicking off this new segment with tips for healthy holiday eating.
Christmas celebrations are in full swing and you may find it difficult to maintain healthy eating habits and your weight during the holidays.
Here are a few tips for your Christmas festivities:
Tip #1
Bring a dish that fits into your healthy eating plan. The hostess will appreciate the offer and you have something you can fall back on.
Tip#2
Survey all the options on the buffet table before filling your plate. Choose foods you really want and leave the rest.
Look for additional tips next week!
