One ward has been closed at Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital due to an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting.
Ward B6 is currently closed to admissions due to an outbreak or diarrhoea and vomiting.
Patients from the ward will not be discharged to nursing or residential homes while they remain an infection risk and we have closed the ward to new admissions.
The infection prevention and control team is reviewing the situation daily and regular and frequent disinfection is being carried out on the ward to contain the outbreak.
Visitors who have been suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting are urged not to come to the hospital until they have been symptom free for 48 hours.
Staff are being advised not to come to work if they have symptoms and to stay off for 48 hours after the symptoms have stopped, as they will be infectious to others during this period.
If you have symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting you should follow this advice:
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
- Take paracetamol for any fever or aches and pains
- If you feel like eating, eat foods that are easy to digest
- Stay at home – don't go to see your GP because diarrhoea and vomiting is contagious and there's nothing your GP can do while you have it
- Contact your GP to seek advice if your symptoms last longer than a few days or if you already have a serious illness.
