Here at Marymount we constantly strive to seek a balance between managing the risk posed to our Residents and Patients by COVID-19 and other communicable diseases with an appreciation for the importance of visiting by family and friends.
Please be advised we currently have an outbreak of COVID-19 on St Catherines Ward (Palliative Care). Therefore regrettably, we kindly request that visiting to this Ward is limited to essential attendance only. We kindly request that ALL visitors to St Catherines would please wear a surgical mask whilst on the ward. It is essential that every person entering Marymount adhere to strict Hand Hygiene practices before and after visiting- NOTE- there are alcohol hand gel dispensers throughout the building. We are most grateful that you follow the guidance we have in place at this time and consider the safety of our vulnerable cohort of patients. If you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0214869100 and your query will be directed as appropriate. Should you wish to arrange a virtual visit please contact the ward and we would be more than happy to arrange this. As always we request that anyone displaying any respiratory or gastric symptoms refrains from attending the hospital for the safety of our staff and patients and to minimise the impact to our vital service. Thank you sincerely for your cooperation and patience at this time. By adhering to this protocol we hope to bring a swift close to the outbreak and return to normal operation in the very near future.
We are constantly reviewing our visiting protocols in line with national guidance and in appreciation for circulating levels of virus in the community: Visiting Protocols are subject to change, we suggest that you check our website for frequent updates, or ring prior to visiting should you have any queries on phone number (021)4869100
We would ask you to pause and consider whether your visit is essential at this time. Non-essential visiting places our vulnerable Patients, Residents and the Staff who care for them at increased risk.
VISITING GUIDELINES for both Services for Older People and Inpatient Palliative Care Unit
For the safety of our patients, visitors and staff we strongly recommend that all visitors are fully vaccinated, including booster.
We greatly appreciate your understanding and patience with regard to our visiting protocols & we thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe in Marymount.
