    Our children’s hospital is currently reviewing our visitation guidelines and would like to ask how others (both pediatric and adult facilities) are handling visitation, particularly for pediatric visitors.   

     Specific questions include:

    • Does your facility restrict pediatric visitors?  Is there any differentiation between sibling and non-sibling visitors?
    • Does your facility screen for sick visitors?  How?
    • Does your facility require visitors to be current on vaccinations?
    • Does your facility require visitors to have flu shots?
