Doncaster Royal Infirmary: Do not visit our patients !

As from the Doncaster (Given credit to this as this one of the few who actually update their website when an outbreak is known, we find this a VERY good policy and urge all other healthcare organisation to take an example of this!)

PLEASE DON’T VISIT AND RISK BRINGING MORE BUGS INTO HOSPITAL!

A number of wards at Doncaster are closed to new patients because they are affected by seasonal and , caused by the Norovirus.

So visitors – please stay away and don’t risk bringing infections into hospital where vulnerable patients may be affected. Getting an infection while in hospital means a longer stay – and ‘blocks’ a bed that another patient may need.

Our advice is:

  • don’t come to hospital as an inpatient, outpatient, or visitor if you have any signs of a stomach upset
  • at home, always thoroughly after using the lavatory and before handling food
  • if visiting someone in hospital is unavoidable, wash your hands before and after the visit. Use the hand gel provided at the entrances to the wards. Please don’t use patients’ lavatories
  • if you have had a stomach upset, wait until you have been free of symptoms for at least 48 hours before visiting hospital where there are sick and vulnerable patients.
