California hospitals begin limiting visitors over H1N1 flu

Los Angeles Times, October 21, 2009

Alarmed by the spread of the H1N1 flu, hospitals throughout California restricted visitors, barring children and capping the number of visitors per patient. In Los Angeles, Cedars- Sinai Medical Center raised the minimum age for visitors from 12 to 18 and restricted the number of visitors for patients at greatest risk for H1N1, including those in labor and delivery, or in the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units.
