How To Stay Busy In A Nurse Practitioner Office

I stayed pretty busy today dealing with patients who are coming into the office with the same symptoms that I had Thurs-Sunday. It's not been overwhelming yet, but I can see it getting worse in the next few weeks.

I know that Swine Flu is supposed to be a respiratory illness, but I wonder if it's changed. I tried to talk to the health department about what I noticed in my office area, but they are not interested unless it's respiratory related with fever over 100.4.

I will swab the next pt with these symptoms and put a name to the one I'm seeing locally if I can.

I find it interesting that suddenly there is this much GI flu symptoms suddenly erupting?

Stay tuned!
