Flu Season at RGH Clinic
As flu cases across the state and in our community increase, RGH Clinic
is taking a few precautions to protect our visitors and our patients.
As of Tuesday, January 23, 2018, RGH Clinic primary care providers are
only seeing acute (severe) patients. All regularly scheduled well visits
will be rescheduled for a later date. Dr. Lingala and Eva Toelle, NP patients
will still be seen and will be asked to move to a separate waiting room
to help limit any exposure to acute patients.
We also want to encourage you to take various preventative measures to
keep you and your family members healthy. Good hand hygiene is extremely
important, especially after visiting high traffic public places such as
a grocery store or school. Cover your cough and sneeze to avoid spreading
any germs to those around you. Seek medical care as soon as you begin
experiencing any flu like symptoms. If you do make a visit to a clinic
during this flu season, wear a mask and limit the number of people you
bring with you especially young children or elderly family members. If
you have not gotten your flu shot this season, it is still highly recommended.
Roosevelt General Hospital and RGH Clinic want you and your loved ones
to remain healthy throughout flu season and the entire year. Continue
to check our website and Facebook pages for updates and tips. For immediate
questions or concerns please call us at 575.359.1800.
