NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Statement on Diarrhoea and Vomiting

September 26, 2007 6:18 PM

Three wards at the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow are not admitting new patients due to an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting.
A total of 24 patients at the hospital have been affected and eight are symptomatic (continuing to experience diarrhoea and vomiting). 
An increase in the numbers of symptomatic patients is not unusual for an infection of this kind when symptoms can last up to 48 hours. All affected patients remain within the three wards.
No-one is giving cause for concern as a direct result of the infection.
The Outbreak Control Team are continuing to investigate the cause of the outbreak and staff in the hospital have put in place all the relevant control measures to limit the spread of the infection and the situation is being monitored around the clock.
ENDS
