Decorations banned at hospital

12th December 2007

A hospital in Norfolk has banned Christmas decorations in an effort to halt the spread of the Norovirus winter vomiting bug.

Infection control experts have also advised families and friends of inpatients at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, to stay away unless their visits are essential. A total of 109 patients and 95 staff at the hospital have had the diarrhoea and vomiting symptoms of Norovirus since the outbreak began in November with 17 patients and two staff still affected.
