Charlotte hospitals fight flu in NC with child ban

CHARLOTTE — Hospitals in North Carolina’s largest city are taking a new tack in the effort to prevent the spread of flu to patients by banning visits by children under the age of 18.

The Charlotte Observer reported that hospital officials said they couldn’t remember making such a blanket restriction on visits by children in the past. The ban goes into effect Thursday.

Carolinas HealthCare System and Novant Health announced the ban in a joint statement Monday. They say it will remain in effect until flu cases have declined significantly, probably several months.

Health officials say the number of flu cases is typical of wintertime peaks even though it’s early in the season.

Children will be allowed to visit dying relatives and will be able to accompany parents to the emergency room.

Officials open flu shot kiosk in NC airport

CHARLOTTE — Travelers passing through a North Carolina airport can roll up their sleeves for a flu shot before their flight rolls down the runway.

The AeroClinic at Charlotte Douglas International Airport has a flu shot kiosk inside the terminal staffed by nurses and will be offering shots beginning Tuesday. There are similar sites in Atlanta and Philadelphia.

Atlanta-based AeroClinic, in partnership with Presbyterian Healthcare, plans to open a walk-in clinic at the Charlotte airport in early 2010. That clinic will provide acute care and
pharmaceutical products.

The airport served more than 34 million passengers in 2008 and offers 655 daily flights.

‘Vale’ gets a new home in NC’s capital city

RALEIGH — Three-thousand pounds of painted steel is getting a new home in North Carolina’s capital city.

“Vale” is a sculpture by Greensboro artist Jim Gallucci that used to sit behind the state library building in the view of school children, who often eat lunch on nearby picnic tables while on field trips.

The sculpture is a minimalist interpretation of a mountain valley in steel. It was taken down more than two years ago so Gallucci could restore it. On Tuesday, Cultural Resources Secretary
Linda A. Carlisle will welcome the sculpture to the intersection of Jones and Wilmington streets in downtown Raleigh.

“Vale” was one of the first pieces selected for the Artworks for State Buildings collections, which comprises 100 works by 78 artists from North Carolina.
