The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at Riley Hospital for Children and IU Health Methodist Hospital are putting visitor restrictions in place starting Monday, Nov. 18th. Only visits by parents plus four designated adults identified by the parents will be allowed on the NICU floor.
Siblings and children under 18 will not be permitted. These restrictions minimize risk of infection to patients already at risk and will be in place through spring 2020.
Riley at IU Health and Indiana University form a nationally-recognized academic health center that exposes students and healthcare professionals to the latest in medical research, technology and innovative treatments for children.
At the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), we work primarily with the Department of Pediatrics, Department of Surgery and the Department of Anesthesiology. IUSM is one of the largest medical schools in the country and is a global leader in medical education and research, with more than $302 million in annual research grants and contracts. We also have long-standing collaborations with the Indiana University School of Nursing and the Indiana University School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Together, we have created an ideal environment for learning and conducting pediatric research along the entire continuum—from bench science to patients’ bedside.
These relationships give future healthcare providers an opportunity to train at Indiana’s only nationally-ranked children’s hospital and provide robust Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities for physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
