Título Morbidity, cost and role of health care worker transmission in an influenza outbreak in a tertiary care hospital
Información bibliográfica Jan.-Feb. 1993, Vol.4, No.1, p.52-56. 19 ref.
Resumen An influenza A outbreak involving 37% of health care workers and 47% of geriatric patients on a ward in a tertiary care hospital was reviewed. The majority of health-care workers became ill prior to detecting the first patient case of influenza, suggesting that nosocomial spread from staff to patients may have occurred. Only 13.7% of the staff and 5.9% of patients had been vaccinated prior to the outbreak. It is suggested that much of the morbidity and costs resulting from this outbreak could have been avoided by increased immunization of staff and patients.
