Wards remain closed at Bath hospital

  • Comment

Three wards remain closed at Bath Royal United Hospital NHS Trust, after an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting virus last week.

The hospital’s Midford ward, which contains 28 beds, underwent a deep clean yesterday and aims to reopen today. The neurology ward and Helena ward remain closed and will also be reviewed today.

Six wards closed on 26 November after a number of patients, visitors and staff caught a viral infection.

Tracey Halladay, the RUH’s senior infection control nurse, said: ‘We are still experiencing problems with the diarrhoea and vomiting bug affecting patients and staff. In order to reduce the risk of other areas being affected, keeping wards closed to new admissions is a necessary precaution.’
