To prevent the spread of cold and flu germs to our tiniest patients, Altru Health System has put into place visitor restrictions for its neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), during high risk cold and flu season (usually between late October and early May).
Altru’s NICU is a secure unit. Security considerations are discussed with parents during their stay. All visitors must pass by staff as they enter the infant-care area, allowing staff the constant ability to monitor the safety and security of infants.
