The strict visiting restrictions that have been in place over recent weeks at Letterkenny University Hospital are being eased from today.
Seán Murphy, General Manager at Letterkenny University Hospital said this is because the number of patients with the flu has decreased.
“Members of the public with influenza-like illness should not visit patients in the hospital and it would be very helpful if children did not visit where possible for the next few weeks.
“In addition, we would like to remind visitors to strictly adhere to our visiting policy to ensure our patients are able to rest and recover while in the hospital.
“This means that only 2 visitors will be allowed at the bedside within visiting hours which are from 2.30pm to 4pm and from 6.30pm to 8pm daily.
“Visitors will not be admitted to the wards outside these hours.
“I would like to sincerely thank all the staff in the hospital and members of the public for their assistance and cooperation during the recent visiting restrictions which helped us to protect our patients from getting the flu when they were in hospital,” he said.
