Influenza at QHC
Please be advised there have now been a number of positive influenza cases seen at QHC and Public Health is also reporting positive cases in our region.
Please help us protect our patients from the flu. Respiratory illnesses like the flu spread easily and we ask that you do not visit the hospital if you have a new or worse cough or shortness of breath or have been feeling unwell and feverish in the last 24 hours.
If you are visiting the hospital remember to clean your hands before you enter and after you leave - clean hands are always your best protection against illness.
This year there is the potential for higher numbers of cases in our community and it is not too late to get the flu shot - see you family doctor for details.
For more information about the flu please see the Public Heath Influenza fact sheet..
