Honoring America’s Veterans with quality health care services, part of the largest integrated health care system in the U.S.
Effective today 12/01/14, in response to concerns about influenza (flu) activity this season, the VA Illiana Health Care System will be following the Illinois Department of Public Recommendations and begin implementing temporary visitation and youth volunteer restrictions. This is necessary for the safety of our Veterans, staff and visitors.
The restrictions are for the Danville VA Medical Center and include:
• No one under 18 years of age accompany or visit Veterans.
• No more than two visitors per inpatient.
• Visitors who are sick should avoid the Medical Center.
• Veterans seeking care with flu symptoms such as fever, runny nose, coughing, fatigue, and body aches must ask a staff member for a mask.
This includes visitors to inpatients, as well as family members and friends who may be accompanying patients to outpatient services and appointments in Danville.
The decision to implement restrictions was made after thoughtful consideration, and was necessary to ensure the safest environment possible for our Veterans and staff. Be advised, a person can be infectious 24 to 48 hours prior to exhibiting symptoms.Learn more »
