Virginia hospital visitors were urged by health care advocates Wednesday to wear masks in an effort to protect against a widespread and severe outbreak of flu rapidly spreading across the country.
Erika Murray, a spokeswoman with Dimensions Healthcare System, which oversees three Prince George's County hospitals, said the trio of health centers have all seen an increase in flu reports, though not to the extent that a triage tent is needed.
"We have a surge capacity plan to accommodate for any time when it looks like we're going to need more resources for the number of patients that we're going to be seeing," she said. "Within the system we try to free up beds in the hospital, we try to free up beds in the emergency room. We have a system where we recruit other spaces and personnel with surges."
