H PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION Collaborative

Medical treatment does not cure influenza but is aimed at controlling the symptoms and preventing complications. Bedrest and increased intake of fluids are prescribed for patients in the acute stage of infection. For persons who are not immunized but are exposed to the virus, amantadine may prevent active infection. Amantadine is usually prescribed for outbreaks of influenza A within a closed population, such as a nursing home.
