Visiting a Hospital can be bad for your health

Visiting a Hospital can be bad for your health.  You can easily get sick when you visit a Hospital and most people do and they do not know why? Not all sicknesses are due to Doctor’s diagnostic errors, Medical malpractices or bad medication substitutes by the Pharmacists.

Visiting a Hospital can be bad for your health but the alternative may be much  worse, but Doctors, Hospitals  pills are a real necessity in real life

C Difficile ( Shit disease) and Norovirus are still the too common illness you can get

Norovirus is a highly contagious viral illness that often goes by other names, such as viral gastroenteritis, stomach flu, and food poisoning. “It is extremely infectious and spreads very easily in public places, such as nursing homes and schools, and it is usually brought into hospital by visitors once it becomes prevalent in the community. Researchers have found that noroviruses can survive on surfaces for as long as 42 days.

The symptoms include nauseavomitingdiarrhea, and some stomach cramping some which in turn causes dehydration. It can be accompanied by a raised temperature, aching limbs and a headache, chills,headache, muscle aches, and a general sense of tiredness. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick.

Norovirus is spread person to person particularly in crowded, closed places.  is typically spread through contaminated food and water, touching surfaces or objects contaminated with norovirus and then putting your hand or fingers in your mouth and close contact with someone who is vomiting or has diarrhea. Norovirus  is the leading cause of gastroenteritis outbreaks.

There is no medication to get rid of the virus and there is no vaccine. Like all viruses, noroviruses don’t respond to antibiotics,   People can transfer Norovirus to others for at least 48 hours after symptoms go away.The most important steps to prevent the spread of Norovirus is to stay home if you are sick for another 48 hours after symptoms go away and for everyone to regularly wash their hands.

The spread of Norovirus can be prevented by practicing proper hand hygiene. Important strategies include washing hands with soap and water, especially after using the toilet and changing diapers, and always before eating, preparing or handling food. “Avoid contaminating food by practicing good food hygiene – wash your hands after visiting the bathroom and before cooking, keep kitchen surfaces clean and ensure food is prepared properly and not cross-contaminated before cooking. Chopping boards are a breeding ground for germs!”

Norovirus is a year-round bug, but you’re more susceptible in winter. All “because people are indoors, in closer proximity to each other with the heating on, which makes it easier for the virus to spread person to person,”There is no specific treatment for norovirus, although it’s recommended you remain hydrated and help yourself rehydrate from the fluid and electrolyte loss resulting from diarrhoea. Gastritis is a common medical problem. Up to 10% of people who come to a hospital emergency department with abdominal pain have gastritis and yet most hospitals still tend to respond very poorly to it. Why?

A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick  and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the  elderly, according to a study published Monday in the Canadian Medical  Association Journal. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were  more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing  homes.
