Several patients are currently experiencing symptoms associated with
Gastroenteritis at Ward 1, Prince Philip Hospital, which has been
temporarily closed to visitors as a result.

Infection control measures are in place on the ward to reduce the risk
of infection and visitors are requested not to visit patients at this
time.

Sharon Daniel, Assistant Director of Nursing (Infection Prevention &
Control) in Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “Illnesses such as
diarrhoea and vomiting can pass from one person to another very easily
and we have been informed that Gastroenteritis is also circulating in
the community.

“I would urge people who are feeling unwell or have been in contact with
someone who has these symptoms NOT to visit patients in hospital at this
time as viruses can be serious for sick and vulnerable patients.”

Symptoms of Gastroenteritis include nausea (feeling queasy) diarrhoea
and vomiting. If you are experiencing these symptoms it is important to
wash and dry your hands thoroughly after going to the toilet and before
you handle food to prevent it being passed on to others.
