Im worried that a staff member might spread H1N1 to our hospitalized animal patients, especially because many of them are already ill or stressed. What do we do?
First and foremost, staff members who are ill should use common sense and stay home. This protects other staff members as well as the patients in your clinic. Having a good pandemic plan and communicating the plan to your staff is critical. View the AVMA’s guidelines on pandemic planning for veterinarians.
