Visitor restrictions at County Hospital

Roscommon University Hospital is asking people to comply with visitor restrictions on St Coman’s Medical Ward.

This is due to a number of suspected cases of the vomiting bug (Norovirus).

In order to assist staff in curtailing the spread of this virus, it is imperative that there is no visiting to St Coman’s ward at this time.

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.
