Lets make this really simple huh? If you have had vomiting and diarrhoea, and if it stopped less than 48 hours ago, then don't come NEAR your local hospital! Got that?
According to the BBC 3 million people came down with the bug. There are currently 13 trusts in England alone that are reporting outbreaks! Although I think it's more than that now and that isn't including Scotland and Wales.
So for the sake of the immunocompromised, the very old, the very young, and the staff DO NOT bring it in with you when you come visit! Got that? Good.

And while we are on the subject of D&V... Enough of X-Factor Christmas hits already! I don't watch these shows, if only because I really don't have the time, but why must we suffer this crap year after year? Has Britain got no taste in music? Apparently not.

I completely agree with your rant ! Did the same a couple of weeks ago on my blog.For some reason it's as if visitors think they are sprinkled with magic fairy dust the minute they enter a hospital & it's ok & dandy to spread it around a bit.Mind you staff are just as bad with working & having a heavy cold & moaning about it.Actually whilst I'm in ranting mood another of my bug bears is patients thinking it's perfectly ok to leave yoghurts & other pershiables for hours on end sat festering on there bedside tables/lockers & then eat them !! I try so hard to tell them that they'll end up ill, but they just don't listen.Same goes with that bloody Actimel stuff that I have to dish out.There I've gone & got myself all angry now !!! Lol.

mmmmm a hospital that makes you sterile the minute you walk in the door? (Depending on the definition of sterile that could be a very good thing)
That yogurt thing is everywhere? My ward is a nice warm 1000 C everyday... Nothing survives, well except noro and friends. I've seen diet cola go off it's that bad.
Oh and Actimel,I hate it. It has NO benefits!
