NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Update Statement on Diarrhoea and Vomiting

October 31, 2007 4:45 PM

One ward at Glasgow Royal Infirmary has now re-opened to elective admissions but three wards are still not admitting new patients due to diarrhoea and vomiting.  
Fourteen patients remain 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.”
