Prevent The Spread Of Infection........

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

There are so many illnesses going around already this year, that it is definitely time to take some preventive measures.

1. Wash your hands with soap and water. If they aren't available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

2. Limit contact with those who are sick whenever possible and when you are sick,limit your contact with others.

3. If you get sick with a flu-like illness, CDC recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone (without the use of fever-reducing medicine).

4. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw out the tissue after you use it.

5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

6. If there is an outbreak of the flu or another illness, follow the advice of public health.

7. If you are prone to pneumonia, check with your Dr. about getting the Pneumonia vaccine.

Stay Well...........

    These are such great tips. When I was in the hospital about 8 years ago having major surgery, the nurse and cleaning lady both had a very bad cold with a hacking cough. I had just been cut open from one side of my stomach to the other with staples all across. I really didn't need a cough. I realize they need to make a living, but when people are coming out of surgery they don't need to get sick. I ended up getting that same cold and when I coughed it hurt so bad. The hospital called to ask how my stay was and I mentioned it to the lady and she said although it is understandable she needed the money, she could have worked on a another floor other than intensive care. So it is a good tip to stay home when sick.

    Thanks for posting!
