In a completely separate and unrelated outbreak, a ward at the Victoria Infirmary in Glasgow remains closed to new admissions after four patients tested positive for Clostridium difficile (C-diff).
The patients associated with the ward at the Victoria Infirmary are all being nursed in isolation. None are giving cause for concern as a result of C-diff.
Standard additional cleaning, and strict infection control measures, have been implemented at the hospital.
There are no links between the situation at the Vale of Leven Hospital in Alexandria and the current cases of C-diff at the Victoria Infirmary.
