WATERFORD REGIONAL HOSPITAL is one of two Waterford hospitals with a ban on visitors due to the vomiting bug.
The HSE said this morning that because of an outbreak of the vomiting bug, Waterford Regional Hospital has put a full ban on visitors until lunchtime today. It is due to review this ban around lunchtime and there is the possibility it may downgrade the restrictions, but this has not yet been confirmed.
Also in Waterford, the smaller St Patrick’s Hospital, which provides care for the elderly, has also been hit by the vomiting bug. It has a full ban in place and that is likely to continue until tomorrow, said the HSE.
