Tips from the School Nurse

PREPARING FOR AND TREATING THE FLU

 

As reported the flu season is upon us.  The primary symptom of the flu is often an uncomfortable fever.  Accompanying the fever is the inevitable headache.  The best way to manage a flu related headache is to maintain hydration and plenty of rest as the body is desperately seeking to replace fluids and conserve energy while fighting the virus.  Pain medication  such as ibuprofen  or tylenol can be useful in helping ease headaches.

 

Steps that families, students and school personnel do to keep from getting sick and spreading flu.

 

1.     Practicing good hand hygiene.  Students and staff members should wash their hands often with soap and water, especially  after coughing or sneezing.  Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

2.     Practicing respiratory etiquette.  The main way that the flu spreads is from person  to  person in the  droplets produced by coughs and sneezes, so it’s

Important to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands.

3.     Staying home if you’re sick. Keeping sick students at home means that they

keep their viruses to themselves rather that sharing them with others.

 In the current flu conditions, students and staff with symptoms of flu should stay home at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever without fever-reducing  drugs.
