Seasonal Influenza Prevention in Health Care Workers

ACOEM, 2008
Influenza, influenza-like illness (ILI) and pneumonia cause significant morbidity and mortality. Influenza contributes to approximately 36,000 deaths annually in the United States,1 with mortality increasing over the last two decades as the population ages and with antigenic drifts in the influenza virus. Influenza continues to be a major cause of death and disease, readily spread by respiratory droplets both in the community and in the health care environment. Health care workers (HCWs) are at risk of infection from exposure to their patients, and patients are potentially at risk of contracting the disease when exposed to infected workers.
