As we get into cold and flu season

I work in a peds clinic and I would like to remind everyone...

Please have your name on your cell phone voice mail we can't leave messages if there isn't some sort of Identification verification.

Give your child Tylenol or Motrin we believe you they have a fever please don't make them suffer just for us

Asthma is dangerous give them their inhalers! Once again we believe you help your child breathe

No your child didn't get the flu from the flu shot there are lots of different strands they may have picked up a different strand while you were in the waiting room or school

Antibiotics don't work for virus's!

it's not the nurses fault you are waiting there may be a very sick child the doctor is with. If it was your child you would want the same attention


Hand washing and covering mouths is the best way to stay healthy!

Now if only some of this was posted at the schools lol.. Especially the hand washing and the covering of the mouth. My oldest DD brought home the flu last week and just as we were getting over it, my aunt brought it again...

 I agree!  Worked in peds for years and just love how everyone gets sick from the shot and then want an antibiotic for it!  lol

Thanks for sharing. I didn't know that about voicemail identification, although mine does have my first and last name. I'll have to check to make sure DH does, too.

I really wish more people would understand, and commit to memory that you CANNOT under any circumstance, no matter WHAT you think, believe or heard from Becky (Jill, Jolene, your sister, your friend's cousin etc), get the flu from the Flu shot.

It's not possible, anymore than you can catch Gay from a gay person.

Ah, cold and flu season...I love it! *eye roll*

Thanks for the reminder - I think a lot of folks get caught up and forget these things.
