Today I'm letting you know that we have one confirmed case of Influenza A H1N1 virus in a staff member at PMH. This individual was not providing patient care and is now recuperating at home. Occupational Health is evaluating and following up with any colleagues who had direct contact.
Our PMH colleague had no link to Mexico, which suggests the H1N1 virus is becoming more widespread in the community. Therefore, it's more important than ever that we all take precautions to stay well for our families, colleagues and patients. Please, wash your hands!
Stay home if you are experiencing any fever or symptoms typical of this virus - new cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches and stomach upset.
Please call Occupational Health and Safety to report your symptoms. If you become sick while at work, report to the Occupational Health Clinic at your site between 0730-1530 hours Monday-Friday. During off-hours please go directly home and report to the Occupational Health Pager. If your symptoms worsen and you need medical care, see your family doctor. If your symptoms are severe, visit the Emergency Department closest to your home.
I would like to wish our PMH colleague a speedy recovery. We all know that flu can be a nasty bug. Let's focus on taking every precaution - individually and collectively - to minimize its effects on our community.
