Below is hospital census information from Children’s Wisconsin to help our community better understand how respiratory illnesses are impacting kids locally. As the only health system in Wisconsin dedicated to the health of kids, Children’s Wisconsin has the largest pediatric intensive care unit in the state.
This week’s takeaway
“At this time, children continue to need the care of our team at Children's Wisconsin due to viral illnesses. However, the number of these patients remain steady at both our hospital and urgent care settings. To help prevent kids becoming ill, we encourage everyone to wash their hands, cover their mouths when they sneeze and cough, stay home when sick, and get vaccinated when eligible. The best treatment continues to be prevention.”
