Flu Season 2014: How Can You Help to Prevent the Spread of Flu?

At Houston Healthcare, the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff is our highest priority. In an effort to inform and educate our community, here are a few suggestions to help prevent the spread of flu at a healthcare facility:

  • Call the patient before visiting. Rethink your visit and call the patient to see how they are doing. Limiting the number of visitors per patient will help control the spread of the illness.
     
  • Limit the amount of visitation time for children. Since children are more likely to get sick and spread the flu, please take into consideration the age and health of your children before deciding to visit a patient.
     
  • Please wash your hands frequently. Look for hand-washing stations around the hospital, and use them often. Please make sure to clean your hands when entering and leaving the hospital either by washing with soap or rubbing your hands together with hand sanitizer. If you are out in public areas, use hand sanitizer after touching objects that many people come in contact with, such as grocery carts, gas pumps, etc.
     
  • Please do not visit the hospital if you have symptoms of the flu. Signs of the flu include fever, cough, sneezing, runny nose or sore throat.
     
  • If you haven’t already, get the flu vaccine. Getting the shot can help increase your chances of staying healthy and avoid getting others sick.

Together, we can prevent the spread of the flu in our community this season.
