RHD Covid-19 Outbreak

Update Feb 16th 2021

All four units that were affected are now clear of Covid-19.  The vast majority of patients and residents have made a full recovery.  However, as reported in the media, we did have five deaths during this outbreak and we extend our sympathy to all those impacted. 

We remain under Public Health supervision until we are clear of new cases in patients, residents or staff for a full 28 days.  Admissions cannot recommence until the oubreak is declared over, after this 28 day period.

Patients and staff on units that are clear are now able to leave the ward and resume use of the physiotherapy gym and other rehabilitation facilities.   

A second vaccination session was held on Feb 4th/5th and further sessions will be scheduled, to vaccinate anyone who still requires it. 

Visiting remains highly restricted.
