Fight The flu
Prevention - Prevention through vaccination is the number one way to avoid the flu. General guidelines to flu prevention include getting the flu vaccination, staying away from large crowds, avoiding contact with individuals who appear sick, and washing hands frequently. Hand washing is the single most effective way to avoid transmission of disease. When coughing, cover your mouth, preferably with your arm/sleeve, and use disposable tissues for the duration of the symptoms. (More information: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/index.html
Symptoms - If you are experiencing fever or coughing, you may be experiencing early signs of flu. Other symptoms to note are sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. (More information: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/symptoms/index.html )
Treatment - When you feel unwell, early diagnosis is the key to effective treatment of the flu, so if you are not feeling well or experiencing rapid onset of fever, seek immediate medical treatment. If diagnosed with the flu by your healthcare provider and medication is prescribed, take it in its entirety even when you begin to feel better. If symptoms persist, call your physician and advise them you are not getting better. Bergen New Bridge Medical Center remains ready to treat any patient who comes to the Bergen New Bridge Outpatient Department or Emergency Room presenting with flu like symptoms. (More information: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/treatment/index.html)
When to go to the emergency room - Go to the emergency room if you have rapid onset, severe flu symptoms. Otherwise, if you believe you may have the flu, contact your primary care physician for advice on treatment. At Bergen New Bridge Medical Center, we will do our best to accommodate walk-ins in the Outpatient Medical Clinic. The emergency room should be used for people who are very sick. You should not go to the emergency room if you are only mildly ill.
How long should you stay home if you are sick - Stay home until your fever stops. If possible or under physician orders, you should remain home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone.
