Winter vomiting bug hits Worthing wards
10:51am Wednesday 16th May 2012 in News
Two hospital wards have been closed to new admissions after an outbreak of a winter vomiting bug.
The wards in Worthing Hospital are closed to new inpatient admissions with potential hospital visitors being asked to stay away if they have suffered from diarrhoea or vomiting.
Visitors who are currently unwell, or have been in the past 48 hours, are urged to postpone as they can be infectious two days after symptoms have gone. Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said they particularly want to discourage visits by children at this time and that visitors who do come into hospital should strictly observe the hand hygiene measures by washing their hands thoroughly.
