Swine flu concerns keep Children's ER in Dallas busy
Panicky parents and their sick children overflowed the emergency room on September 23 at Children's Medical Center Dallas, seeking tests and treatments for swine flu. Children's declined to say how many patients have sought flu treatments recently. However, 60 children were sick enough with the flu to be admitted to the hospital in the past two weeks, officials said. To handle the onslaught of patients, the hospital's emergency department set up separate waiting and treatment areas for children with flu symptoms.
