I agree. I was shocked that the military pediatric office has a sick and a well area! Our great docs in maine (civilian practice) did not.

Our doctors office only runs a full sick/well area during cold and flu season, but they have a rash room with a separate entrance year round.

Our pedi's office has a totally different waiting room for sick and well, with lots of signs. When we go in to the sick side, I feel like we are entering at our risk, though. I try to keep Ben in a stroller and wash everyone's hands and carry hand gel. The flu just went through this area, I even know several folks who had it that I was exposed to... *knock wood* we've missed it. It went through the nursing home, too, so they stopped having activities for 2 weeks and we've not brought the kids up there in that time.

Those kids should never, never, ever have been in a shared waiting room.
Yes, it's true that the peds office should have dealt with it better. The one twin mom with the girls who are close to the age of mine said that it was a bit of a farce: the doctors were an hour and a half behind, there was very little communication from the reception area, that kind of thing. I bet the staff was back there thinking, "Oh crap oh crap oh crap" while they waited to get an infectious disease specialist on the phone.

I am not sure if they had a sick/well waiting area at that practice; her babies were sick that day, so they probably would have been in the sick area, but they didn't have measles!

Also annoying is the published list of other places that this family took their children during the period that they think they were contagious: two movie theaters, Walmart and a grocery store, and church (the second germiest place on earth, after the hospital). And there's also waiting areas of two hospitals where they were seen or lab tests run.

The health department posted this:
Quote:
If you develop symptoms, call your health care provider and let them know you may have the measles. It is important that you do not visit a physician's office, emergency room, lab or any medical clinic without first calling the facility and informing them of your exposure to measles. This will enable the facility to take the necessary precautions to protect other individuals from possible exposure.
They also specified what is required for quarantine for people with known exposure but unknown immunity (no school, work, social events, or otherwise leaving home for 21 days). We need to get used to that kind of caution, even if it sometimes feels like overreaction. But I think anyone who is sick should stay home; it's a shame that so many people feel like they can't stay home from work because they don't have sick leave.

I would imagine many would truly lose their jobs if they stayed home that long. I know around here there are plenty of employers who could care less if you have a sick kid to care for, they just need hours covered. I'd imagine most couldn't afford to miss those hours, either. I agree, there are many systems in our country that are dysfunctional or flat out broken, and this is one of them.

Wasn't that one of the main selling points for this and the CP vaxes initially? That kids wouldn't miss out on school and parents wouldn't have to take off work. I laughed at how they started calling this an epidemic with only 9 people having it. If 9 people is an epidemic, what do they call this year's flu that has killed more than 9 people already? A catastrophic end of life as we know it event?

Yes, I have heard that as a selling point for the CP fax especially. As a stay at home parent, it's not a big selling point to me, but I can see how it could be a factor when you actually think of the realities of, say, having three or four kids come down with CP a few days or a week apart. My DH is also fortunate enough to have generous sick and personal leave time--but so many are not that lucky!

My friend's sister is a public health officer for the air force and she said that the flu is condsidered an epidemic every year.

The flu doesn't have a catchy name like "ebola" so it doesn't get the attention. I just heard last night that this year's flu vaccine was less than 25% effective. Yet, I still hear people pushing the vaccine. Why?!

Sick leave is not something most even have. An average single mom working at Burger King would likely get fired if she had to take off for 3 weeks to stay with a sick child. It's sad, really.

It seems that there are always those that are ready to go to blows with strangers on the web when one of these diseases gets through and breaks out. Measles is not exactly a death sentence (thankfully!!) and yet the media loves to fan the flames of panic. Of course, everyone is quick to point fingers, without having any real clue how it all works... or doesn't!

And this... http://abcnews.go.com/Health/newlywe...ry?id=28253815

It makes me so sad, but also angry. As a healthcare worker, she likely would have been required to take the flu shot. She caught the flu anyway and died of sepsis. All vaccines are designed to trigger an immune response and sepsis is a result of the bodies natural immune response becoming overwhelmed. There have been several deaths from meningitis under similar circumstances, too. I *really* wish they'd study the cause and effect much more closely. I postulate that it's possible their own unadulterated immune systems may have done a better job in absence of the vaccines.

Disneyland (and Disneyworld) are a cesspool of germs, and with all the international travelers and the number of people going through there, I am honestly surprised this doesn't happen more often really. And that's a chance you take when traveling anywhere.

And the kids that were too young to get the vax who got measles there weren't necessarily small infants. Isn't the MMR vax normally given at a year or 18 months? I don't think we should assume these were people out with a 2 week old baby getting all exposed to germs.

Chickenpox just went through our area. One family was not vaccinated and intentionally got CP, but it took an amazingly long time to go through their family of 3 kids. Each kid got it at a different time even though they were equally exposed. It was almost a month before they were all clear, thankfully they had a mom who only worked part time and was able to get care for them through that time.

I don't get the hype to be honest... my son got the measles while we were at the beach (he was about 9 months old, and got them from my nephew who was shedding from the MMR and had the same rash a week before or so). The only thing the ER docs told me, was to keep breastfeeding, and alternate the fever meds, he would be fine... that was it. Nothing about keeping him in, nothing about it becoming an epidemic, nothing.
