So it was announced today that one of the doctors that I work for has... WHOOPING COUGH!
Okay I realize that the likelihood of my contracting are slim to none as I was vaccinated as a child, but hello? Why would you wait 3 weeks after finding out you have it to let you staff know? And what about your patients? You are a VASCULAR SURGEON for crying out loud. Don't you think that's a little risky in the OR? Really?
On top of him having it, we think 2 other coworkers may have gotten it from him. Both have been hacking for the last 2+ weeks.
I see this as a HUGE liability for our patients! Apparently he doesn't care that whooping cough is EXTREMELY contagious for those not vaccinated, but also for those who are 50 and over and their vaccine from childhood is no longer as potent against the disease.
Gaaaahhh!! Someone talk some sense into this man!
