As of December 11, 2019, Saratoga Hospital, along with several regional hospitals implemented visitation guidelines to further protect patients from influenza and other infectious diseases following a declaration by the New York State Commissioner of Health that the flu is now prevalent in certain communities.
These guidelines are:
- A maximum of two visitors will be permitted in a patient's room at any one time.
- Children 12 and under will be prohibited from visiting patients' rooms, as they are more likely to have and transmit respiratory infections.
- Special visitation guidelines are in place on the Women's Health Services unit. Please call 518-583-8331 for more detail.
- Visitors with rash, diarrhea or respiratory symptoms will be prohibited from visiting patients. These symptoms include fever, sore throat, cough and shortness of breath.
We encourage all visitors to use hand-washing stations before entering and upon leaving a patient’s room.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issue new patient information along with updated travel information related to Zika virus
Zika virus can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus, and infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect of the brain called microcephaly and other severe brain defects. Other problems have been detected among fetuses and infants infected with Zika virus before birth, such as defects of the eye, hearing deficits, and impaired growth. CDC recommends special precautions for pregnant women. Women who are pregnant should not travel to areas with Zika. If you must travel to one of these areas or if you live in an area with Zika, talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider and strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites and to prevent sexual transmission.
