Wesley Medical Center announces seasonal visitation policy

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Wesley Healthcare is limiting visitation to its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Special Care Nursery the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), as well as all of its adult ICUs.

The hospital says as cases of RSV and the flu begin to rise, the goal is to limit the exposure of the illnesses to patients who have delicate or compromised respiratory systems.

No person under the age of 12 will be permitted to visit the specified hospital units unless he or she is a patient or there are extenuating circumstances.

Wesley says more people with flu-like systems have visited its emergency departments over the past few weeks.
