Coronavirus: Guidance on visiting Ardgowan Hospice
Coronavirus: guidance on visiting Ardgowan Hospice
The symptoms of coronavirus may be more severe in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term and life-limiting illnesses.
It is therefore important that we take all reasonable steps to protect those using our services, as well as those working and volunteering at our sites.
We request that all patients, relatives, friends, staff, volunteers and contractors consider whether they could be a potential carrier of the coronavirus before visiting our In-Patient Unit or Access building in Greenock or any of our other sites, including retail shops, throughout Inverclyde.
If you are feeling generally unwell, we politely ask you not to visit Ardgowan Hospice to protect our patients, staff and volunteers.
For the latest information and guidance on the coronavirus you can visit:
You can help to stop the spread of any germs by:
Catching your cough or sneeze in a tissue – bin used tissues straight away. If you’re caught short, sneeze into the crook of your elbow rather than your hands.
Washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing (use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are unavailable)
Avoiding close contact with people who are unwell
Not touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
