Early flu treatment reduces hospitalization time, disability risk in older people
from Infection Control Today
Early treatment of flu-hospitalized people 65 and older with flu anti-viral medications cuts the duration of their hospital stay and reduces their risk of needing extended care after discharge, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study finds. The study is the first to look at the benefits of early anti-viral treatment on preventing the need for extended care in community-dwelling flu-hospitalized people 65 and older.
