RAH Paisley hospital in ‘essential visits only’ due to peak in Covid patients



Paisley’s Royal Alexandra Hospital (RAH) is returning to essential visits only due to an increase in the number of Covid patients.

The infirmary announced the changes, which will take effect from 8 p.m. this evening, via the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde website this afternoon.

All acute care services except Maternity, Gynecology and Mental Health will switch to essential visits for the next three weeks until Tuesday, November 2.

There has been an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in the Renfrewshire region.

The RAH has open rooms, which makes social distancing and patient separation more difficult.

A statement on the board of health website reads: ‘The RAH has, in recent weeks, seen an increase in COVID-19-related hospitalizations due to the increased prevalence of the community in Renfrewshire.

“Due to the particular challenges within open-house wards, separating patients and their visitors is more difficult. Likewise, observing social distancing and other mitigation measures against COVID is more difficult.

“The essential visiting arrangements will be applied with flexibility and compassion and the needs of each patient will be considered on their own merits.

“Caregivers, those who provide essential care or emotional support, or spiritual care are not considered visitors and should continue to be allowed to assist a patient in the hospital.

“Arrangements within the RAH will be closely monitored to ensure that we are optimizing the safety of patients, families and staff. ”
