King's Lynn's hospital further tightens restrictions on visiting




Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn has further strengthened restrictions to visiting as it responds to Covid-19.

The new restrictions aim to reduce the number of visitors to the site (with a limited number of exceptions) and are necessary to protect patients, according to the hospital management.

Inpatients with Covid-19 and patients awaiting test results for Covid-19 should not receive visitors.

Visiting is no longer allowed on our wards until further notice – with these exceptions:

• One parent permitted to accompany children

• One birthing partner permitted to attend in the maternity department

• One carer is permitted in the emergency department (but must remain with the patient at all

times)

• Exceptions can be discussed with ward managers if your relative is receiving end-of-life care.

Five patients are in critical condition with coronavirus in the hospital and a total of 18 have tested positive in all. Two people died last week of the disease and one has been discharged.
