If you are visiting a patient

There are hand hygiene stations at the entrances of all wards and clinics

  • Leave infections at home - please do not visit if you are feeling unwell. If you have recently had sickness and diarrhoea you must not visit until you have been free from symptoms for at least two days. Cover up any open wounds or cuts
  • Do not sit on the patient’s bed - please us the chairs provided
  • Do not touch patient’s wounds, bandages / dressings, or medical equipment
  • Do not clutter – help staff to keep areas clean by only bringing essential items into the hospital and taking things home that are not required
  • Do not use patient toilets on the wards, use the visitor toilets located outside the wards
