To assist medical practices and outpatient facilities in ensuring a sustainable community health response, the CDC last week posted “10 Steps You Can Take: Actions for Novel H1N1 Influenza Planning and Response for Medical Offices and Outpatient Facilities.” The steps range from developing a plan to stay open during a pandemic to protecting your employees and providing a safe workplace.
