NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Statement on Diarrhoea and Vomiting

October 30, 2007 4:48 PM

Three wards at Glasgow Royal Infirmary are not admitting new patients and one ward has postponed elective admissions due to an increased number of patients with diarrhoea and vomiting.
Twenty-two patients and seven staff at the hospital are symptomatic but none are giving any cause for concern as a result of the infection.
Professor John Coia, Infection Control Doctor said: “Infection control staff have put in place all the relevant control measures to limit the spread of the infection and we are monitoring the situation around the clock.
“We are advising visitors who have had symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting not to visit patients and encouraging visitors to wash their hands thoroughly when leaving the hospital. It is also advisable for children and the infirm not to visit any of the wards affected.”
ENDS
