I know the Flu season has kicked in here because I track it on the CDC website but seeing the ER packed and all the water droplet advisories on patient room after patient room in the general pediatric care ward was also a pretty good indicator but I guess I should have stopped and introduced myself to everyone and asked . I didn't advise her to do anything. I just said it was reckless to expose a sick infant to more pathogens unless there was an actual indication the infant was in danger and needed hospital level care. As for the first paragraph of your post most of that can be said for in person visits too.
