Kim Coulter, coordinator of employee and community relations at Ross Memorial Hospital and RMH Foundation says the hospital is getting a lot of calls about restrictions in visiting the hospital, given its suspected norovirus outbreak.
Coulter reminds people that the outbreak restrictions impact the third floor medical unit and first floor continuing care unit only.
All other areas of the Hospital, including outpatient clinics, are functioning normally and visiting is still permitted.
The hospital is taking special measures to control the spread of the illness, including heightened attention to personal protective equipment (PPE) and special cleaning procedures.
Patients will not be admitted to the affected Units, nor will patients be transferred from the Units unless clinically required.
