Hygiene and Infection Prevention

Please gel your hands when entering or leaving the Unit.

When you enter the nursery, please wash your hands with soap and water.

 

It is important for parents and family to visit their babies, but infection poses a great risk to a premature or sick baby. 

If you are a parent and feel unwell you must talk to the nurse looking after your baby to check that it is safe for you to visit.

No other visitors can visit if they are unwell.

Infectious diseases - for example chickenpox, measles, mumps, diarrhoea and vomiting...
A person can have the infection and spread it to others before they show any symptoms themselves. Therefore if parents (or other visitors) have come in contact with anyone who has an infectious disease, it is very important that you talk to your baby's doctor about the risks this poses to yourself and your baby.

The decision to allow visiting will depend upon individual circumstances.
