The ChildBirth Center at Springfield Hospital is announcing plans to resume its normal visiting hours effective April 1. Immediate family members are welcome to visit anytime, remembering to consider and accommodate the patients' needs for rest.
Visiting hours for friends and relatives will be 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 8 p.m daily. To help prevent infection and maintain a safe environment for newborns, with the exception of siblings, children under the age of 12 are asked not to visit the ChildBirth Center, and to plan their visit to the new family after they have arrived home.
The ChildBirth entry will be locked at all times for security, and visitors will be asked to use a security button located next to the door.
For more information or to tour the center, contact Holly Trail, RN, IBCLC, Nurse Manager, at 885-7342 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
