Visitor restrictions remain in place on St Coman’s Medical Ward


Visitor restrictions remain in place on St. Coman’s Medical Ward due to a number of suspected cases of the vomiting bug (Norovirus) and Roscommon University Hospital is asking people to assist staff in curtailing the spread of this virus by adhering to the ‘No Visitor’ restrictions that are currently in place on St. Coman’s Medical Ward.   

  On Wednesday, the HSE said: “Infection control procedures are in place on the affected ward and will remain so until further notice.

  “Visitors are requested to cooperate with hospital staff who are ensuring the restrictions are adhered to and visitors are also advised that they must use the alcohol hand gels supplied as they enter and leave the hospital.

  “We would ask that anyone with recent symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting or who has had contact with others who have these symptoms should not visit patients in the hospital to avoid spreading the virus to sick vulnerable patients”.
