Hospital wards open
WARD 6 at Ninewells Hospital and Ward 8 at Royal Victoria Hospital have reopened to new admissions after being closed following a number of cases of diarrhoea and vomiting.
The wards were closed to new patients as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the virus which is currently circulating in the community.
The Bluebell Intermediate Care Unit in Riverside Drive closed to new admissions yesterday as a result of the bug.
NHS Tayside is reminding would-be visitors wishing to see friends or family in hospital to stay away for at least 48 hours if they feel unwell or are experiencing vomiting and diarrhoea, to minimise the spread of the virus.
