Nenagh Hospital: Visiting restricted due to Covid outbreak
Visiting has been restricted across both inpatient wards at Nenagh Hospital following an outbreak of Covid-19 on Medical Ward 2 at the hospital.
Management of a Covid-19 outbreak on Ward 1 also continues this week, and as a precautionary measure, visiting is not being permitted on either inpatient ward. An outbreak control team has convened and the visiting restrictions are being reviewed on a daily basis.
Access to other areas of Nenagh Hospital is unaffected and can continue as normal.
"We regret any inconvenience the visiting restrictions cause for inpatients on the wards, and for their loved ones. Hospital management has decided that it is necessary to restrict visiting in the interests of patient and staff safety and keeping essential services open for all patients," a spokesperson for University Hospital Limerick Group said.
