Hospitals change visitation policies due to H1N1 concerns

MADISON (WKOW) -- You may want to check the visitation policy before visiting friends in the hospital.

Hospitals around the country are turning away children who are visiting, and tightening restrictions on adults in hopes of limiting the spread of the H1N1 flu in hallways.

Some hospitals are posting signs urging people to stay home if they have a running nose or cough.

Utah and Colorado are suggesting visitor limits for hospitals statewide. Right now, its a hospital-by-hospital decision.
