Visitor restrictions continue at University Hospital Kerry due to vomiting bug

Visitor restrictions are continuing at University Hospital Kerry due to the vomiting bug.

A number of patients in the Sliabh Mis Unit have suspected norovirus, so management introduced restrictions last week in the interest of patient care and to curb the spread of it.

Visitors are asked to respect restrictions, and security staff will be ensuring they’re adhered to.

Visitors are also advised they must use the alcohol hand gels as they enter and leave the hospital.

Anyone with any queries about visiting times should ring the hospital in advance (066 7184000).
