Infection Prevention

Your Safety is Important to Us

The health and safety of our patients, visitors, employees, and our communities remain a top priority at NewYork-Presbyterian. Because your safety is important to us, we ask that you follow the appropriate precautions when visiting a loved one in hospital isolation. These types of precautions help prevent the spread of germs in the hospital. Before entering an isolation room, you should speak with a nurse for more information about the type of isolation precautions your loved one is on. Here are the kinds of precautions you will need to follow.
