ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for healthcare workers who have direct contact with a patient to take flu immunization for the sake of patient safety. Almost 60% of medical personnel in the U.S. do not get vaccinated against the flu, putting themselves and their patients at risk. Hospital administrators were told by the Joint Commission to vaccinate more employees or potentially forfeit the seal of approval that is needed to receive federal funding.
