Easing of Visiting Restrictions at TUH 

(June 26th 2024) Tallaght University Hospital has announced an easing of visiting restrictions for patients, with the exception of the following wards Maguire, Osborne, Webb, Ruttle, Burkitt and Franks. The Hospital will continue to facilitate visits to these wards on compassionate grounds and will continue with the patient care package service until visiting can resume. 

Commenting on the easing of visiting restrictions, Chief Operations Officer, Shane Russell commented: “I appreciate that despite our best efforts to put arrangements in place the restriction on general visiting has been very difficult for both patients and their loved ones. These restrictions were put in place to keep everyone as safe as possible, we are very pleased to reintroduce some visiting. I hope the community can continue to support us and ensure they follow our visiting guidelines.

Visiting to the Hospital is from 2pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm. We would like to remind visitors to clean their hands as they arrive in the Hospital, onto the ward and as they leave. If you have any cold / flu / COVID symptoms or vomiting or diarrhoea postpone the visit. This is in the best interest of the health of your loved one, all other patients and the staff caring for them.
