Be Prepared if a Measles Outbreak Brings Patients to Your Hospital
Recent measles outbreaks will put your hospital on high alert.
Measles is a big problem in areas with low immunization rates. Nine out of ten nonimmune patients will get measles after exposure.
And it can lead to serious complications, such as pneumonia or encephalitis...especially in kids under 5 years, pregnant women, or immunocompromised patients.
