Cincinnati Children's Hospital is putting visitor restrictions in place because of the high number of patients in the hospital with respiratory illnesses.
A release says all visitors should be healthy – free from fever, cough, colds, or stomach virus symptoms. Children under 14 may only visit siblings and only parents or guardians should visit in critical care areas. The restrictions are the same as those put in place every winter during flu season.
Almost four years after an Arizona boy swallowed a button battery that burned his esophagus and trachea, doctors at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, will rebuild his throat so he can eventually breathe without the help of a trach tube and learn to speak more clearly.
