Influenza Updates

For employees from Kathy Ramiza, Chief Clinical Officer:

The flu vaccine is still available, is covered by Springbrook insurance plan and most others, offers protection against the flu and can also reduce the severity of the illness for those who get the flu.  It’s not too late!

HANDWASHING is the number one way to prevent spreading the flu.  Wash hands frequently, before preparing food, after returning home from errands, and before providing direct care to individuals.

Report fever, cough, & congestion to house RN’s promptly, there are medications that can help decrease the severity of flu.

1600 people in New York State were hospitalized with flu last week.  If symptoms of flu worsen after the first few days, please seek medical attention promptly!
