Update on outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting virus at Rotherham Hospital

22 May 2017 11:28:45


Update

Last week we announced that the Rotherham Hospital site was experiencing an outbreak of rotavirus, a diarrhoea and vomiting bug. As a result of this restrictions were put in place over the weekend regarding visiting wards A1 and A5 where non-essential visiting was stopped. 

We are pleased to say that these restrictions have now been lifted and visiting is allowed in these areas. This is however limited to two visitors per patient and no children.

If you are considering visiting someone in hospital and have either had symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has had symptoms recently, please ensure you have been clear for at least 48 hours before visiting.

The best prevention for diarrhoea and vomiting is regular hand washing using soap and running water.

If you are visiting, please ensure that you use the hand gel provided to help us minimise the spread of germs.

This is a short term measure and we thank you all for your cooperation during this time.
