Hutchinson Health helps protect against the flu

SPONSORED POST – Seventy-nine percent of Hutchinson Health’s employees received the flu vaccine in the 2014-15 season, helping to protect patient safety.

For this effort, Hutchinson Health recently received white ribbon status from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) as part of the FluSafe program.

Participating in this program represents the high level of commitment at Hutchinson Health. Getting vaccinated is the first step in protecting against getting the flu.

According to the MDH, unvaccinated health care workers pose a greater risk of passing highly contagious influenza to vulnerable patients, without even knowing it. The FluSafe program aims to get all health care personnel, except those with medical exemptions, at hospitals and nursing homes in Minnesota vaccinated against influenza each season.
