Latex Rubber Balloons Banned

At the Sleepy Eye Medical Center, we understand that when a loved one is in the hospital, family and friends may bring get-well or celebratory gifts – including balloons. Due to potential latex allergies we will no longer allow latex (rubber) balloons within our facility. This change in policy is designed to protect patients and staff from the risk of allergic reactions to latex. If you choose to bring balloons, we allow Mylar balloons (these are made of thin, reflective material). Mylar balloons are the safe alternative to latex balloons. Visitors who bring latex balloons into the facility will be asked to return them to their car. Reactions to latex poses a health issue and we are acting in the interests of our patients and staff. A person with latex allergies may experience symptoms ranging from hives and swelling to respiratory failure.

If you have any concerns regarding your health in regards to exposure to latex or a potential latex allergy, please see your healthcare provider. If you do not have a health care provider, the Sleepy Eye Medical Center welcomes new patients. Please call us at (507) 794-3691 or 1-877-794-3691 toll free. Thank you for helping us make the Sleepy Eye Medical Center latex-free and protecting our patients and staff.

Flu Clincs Scheduled for November

The Sleepy Eye Medical Center will not hold flu clinics until November due to lack of vaccine. Companies that produce the vaccine have had issues with manufacturing and shipping. Sleepy Eye Medical Center ordered ample supplies of flu vaccine last March so our reserves should meet our community’s needs. November is still an acceptable time to get your flu shots. Flu clinic days and times will be announced on the radio, in the newspaper and will be posted on our website.
