Hand Hygiene

Hand washing is important. All visitors are required to wash their hands or use the alcohol rub/gel to clean their hands when entering and leaving the wards. Visitors may be required to put on gloves and gowns before entering Isolation rooms. Nursing staff will assist you with this if required.

Visitors with colds, flu or gastroenteritis are requested not to visit the hospital while they are unwell.
