Be Prepared if a Measles Outbreak Brings Patients to Your Hospital
Your hospital may be on high alert for patients with measles...due to recent outbreaks.
These outbreaks are a big problem in areas with low immunization rates. It's scary because about 9 out of 10 NONimmune patients will get measles when exposed...and about one in 1,000 people who get measles will die.
But some folks still don't get vaccinated. They may think vaccines cause autism...even though many studies show MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) and others DON'T cause it.
