Study Finds Many Calif. Doctors Would Work While Sick
A study presented last week at IDWeek 2015 shows that 96% of California doctors surveyed said they would work if they had cold symptoms and that 36% said they would work if they had the flu. The study was based on a survey of 474 doctors at a California academic hospital. Doctors in medical residency training were the most likely to say they would work while sick with the flu, while more-tenured attending physicians were the least likely to say they would work with the flu, according to the study.
