Flower and balloon rules

Because of the risk posed by COVID-19, we are screening visitors and patients for signs of illness as they arrive at Nebraska Medical Center and Bellevue Medical Center. Floral and balloon deliveries are accepted at these screening stations. They will then be delivered by staff to the patient's room. We thank you for understanding!

Guidelines for Flowers and Balloons

  • Live or dried flowers are not allowed in some critical care areas of the hospital.
  • The nursing staff, as well as the gift shop staff can help you make appropriate selections.
  • Mylar balloons (the shiny foil-color) are acceptable.
  • Latex balloons are prohibited because of the potential hazards they pose for our patients, care providers and guests.
