Hos­pi­tal wards hit by virus re­open to new ad­mis­sions

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

Wards at two Dundee hos­pi­tals have re­opened af­ter an in­fec­tion out­break was brought under con­trol.

Ward 3 at Ninewells and Ward 8 at the Royal Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal on Jedburgh Road were closed to new pa­tients as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure to pre­vent the spread of the di­ar­rhoea and vom­it­ing virus among pa­tients.

A spokesman for the health board said that all ap­pro­pri­ate in­fec­tion con­trol and preven­tion mea­sures had been put in place and the ban on new pa­tients had been lifted.

To min­imise the spread of bugs, peo­ple who are feel­ing un­well should not visit friends and fam­ily mem­bers who are in hos­pi­tal.
