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.

Middlesex Hospice and Palliative Care Seeks Volunteers

The Middlesex Hospice and Palliative Care Program at Middlesex Hospital is seeking volunteers to work in a variety of settings. Volunteers are a key part of the hospice and palliative care team in helping patients and families cope with the challenges of terminal illness. Volunteers work in homes, on the Weiss Hospice Inpatient Unit at the main hospital, or in bereavement support. Forty hours of classes (held primarily on Saturdays) and a 12-hour mentorship are required to become a volunteer in the program. The program is especially in need of male volunteers.

Training runs from early February through mid-April, 2012. To begin the application process, contact Barbara Standke, hospice volunteer coordinator, at (860) 358-6955 or email her at at your earliest convenience.
