Myself and DS have suspected flu. DH and DD don't - he works in a hospital. I'm of the opinion that he really shouldn't go into work tomorrow (and I can't look after the kids anyway) but he's adamant that they wouldn't allow him to stay off unless he had symptoms. What are other's opinions on this?
I think its going to get pretty difficult health care wise over the autumn with ill staff not being able to get in, if those with poorly families can't make it in either it could get very challenging. I think he is going to have to follow his work place protocol with this one even if it goes against all instincts.
(and if you think about it at work he may well get prolonged exposure before too long and you can't have all health care workers who have been exposed staying in quarantine, there'll be no one left!)
hI,am NHS worker and when dc had suspected Swine Flu I rang my manager and was told to go in as I was asymptomatic,this was obv in line with policy.I would get him to contact thehospital in which he is based for their local policy.
