Naas Hospital introduces restrictions

Naas General Hospital

Naas General Hospital has asked for the public’s cooperation in avoiding non-essential patient visits to the facility in the coming days. The hospital is dealing with a suspected outbreak of Norovirus (winter vomiting bug). All visitors (including children) are asked not to visit the hospital if they’ve had diarrhoea or vomiting within the previous 72 hours. All visitors are requested to observe hand hygiene regulations on entering and leaving the wards.  Information on these regulations are posted throughout the hospital.

 

The restrictions will be reviewed on a daily basis.

 

Naas General Hospital would like to thank the community for their on-going cooperation on this matter.
