People with flu symptoms asked to stay away from hospital

First published in News by

STAFF at Salisbury District Hospital are asking visitors and relatives not to come into hospital if they have had flu like symptoms.

People are asked not to visit if they have had diarrhoea or vomiting up to 48 hours previously, or fever, coughing, sore throat, runny nose, headache, or muscle aches and pains in recent days.

Fiona McCarthy, senior nurse in infection prevention and control, said: “It’s important that we take every opportunity to reduce the risk to patients and staff and this measure will help us protect patients from infection and reduce the potential for these infections to take hold on hospital wards.”
