Visitor Restrictions Lifted at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital
Bozeman, MT [April 17, 2018] — Throughout the past three weeks, Bozeman
Health has seen a significant decrease in the number of influenza cases.
Effective immediately, visitor restrictions at Bozeman Health Deaconess
Hospital have been lifted. The restrictions were implemented to help prohibit
the spread of flu within the hospital. We do ask that anyone experiencing
mild cold or flu symptoms refrain from visiting the hospital until their
symptoms have resolved.
Visitor restrictions help us control the spread of the influenza virus
(the flu) in the hospital. Influenza is highly contagious and can be a
major cause of acute bronchitis and pneumonia. The best defense against
the flu is immunization and frequent hand washing.
We appreciate the community’s cooperation and understanding as we
care for our patients and work to help keep our community healthy.
