hospital re-opens following Norovirus
hospital has this week re-opened to new patients after an outbreak
of Norovirus was brought under control.
first broke the news in
February that the sickness bug had shut the main ward at the
hospital in Love Lane.
The hospital put in place additional cleaning and infection control
measures in an attempt to stamp out the sickness bug and was this
week given the 'all clear' to re-open for new patient admissions.
advice from hospital staff is that normal infection control measures
are still important and members of the public visiting patients
are still asked to ensure they wash their hands thoroughly on
entering the hospital and to use the anti-bacterial hand rubs
before entering the ward areas," said NHS Somerset spokesman
