Visitor Restrictions Due to Flu

Due to the prevalence of the flu in Connecticut, Middlesex Hospital is now limiting visitors to immediate family members or a designated support person. A maximum of two visitors may visit a patient at one time, and all visitors must be at least 18 years of age unless special permission is granted. These restrictions are effective immediately.

Anyone with flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to visit patients at the Hospital. Symptoms can
include fever, vomiting and coughing, diarrhea, body aches and headaches.

Anyone who visits a patient at the Hospital must clean their hands.

Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Shoulder replacement surgery involves the removal of the diseased head (ball) of your shoulder joint, and the placement of a metal stem into your upper arm bone (humerous). A metal or ceramic ball is then placed on the stem, forming the first half of the new shoulder joint. The shoulder section is then reshaped and lined with a metal or ceramic cup creating a new socket for the ball to sit in. The socket may also receive a plastic liner to keep the new joint moving smoothly. The ball is slipped into the socket to restore movement and create the new joint.
