Losing numerous employees to the flu for a prolonged period would hurt many companies. This is especially true in the health care field, where professionals are skilled, well-trained and are difficult to replace.
Sherman Health was highlighted in the Courier-News on Sunday. With a powerful flu season on its way, preparation for its effects is paramount. JoAnn Foley, Sherman’s chief emergency preparedness officer, spoke about the importance of being prepared and the steps being taken.
“The hospital’s plan includes extending shifts, working flex time or shuffling hospital staff into other roles they are trained to fill. Sherman also has mutual aid agreements with other hospitals in the area and can share staff if a flu outbreak were to hit just one area, she said.”
