It might seem counterintuitive to see a sick doctor while you are sick, but it could be happening at your next doctor visit.
The Doctors discuss a survey of 2000 healthcare workers which reportedly found that more than 40 percent of them met with patients while battling the flu. The panel notes most healthcare workers are mandated to get the flu vaccine, and they say they hope if someone is dealing with the flu or a cold that they would wear a mask while working with patients.
So what can be done to possibly prevent yourself from getting sick while seeing a possibly ill doctor or while being at a hospital? The following suggestions from The CDC might prevent you from getting sick:
- Wash your hands frequently
- If you are unable to wash your hands with soap and warm water, use an alcohol-based hand rub
- Do not touch your face, including your nose, eyes, and mouth
- Get your yearly flu vaccine
