Answer

Alert parents and caregivers of the index patient that if any exposure to the index patient has occurred within a childcare setting to seek prompt medical care for any signs or symptoms that may be related to Hib infection.

For excellent patient education resources, visit the Infections Center, Children's Health Center, and Cold and Flu Center. Also, see the patient education articles Sepsis (Blood Infection)Childhood Immunization Schedule, and Flu in Children (Childhood Influenza).
