NEW measures have been introduced at University Hospital, Dooradoyle in an effort to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection among patients and staff at the region’s main acute hospital.

The system encompasses a temperature detection unit, a calibration unit, and a laptop that displays the image of the people passing through the detection point.

Any visitor with a temperature detected in excess of 37.5 degrees Celsius will not be permitted on the hospital site.They will be provided with an information leaflet and advised to seek guidance from their GP.
