In brief: Bronchitis

Over the last several years, with bird flu and swine flu, many of us in health care were more vocal about sick patients staying home from work.
Bronchitis is an upper respiratory illness and as such, one of your symptoms is cough. Every time you cough, you spread whatever you are sick with, be it a virus or bacteria. In order to reduce the chances of your co-workers getting sick, stay home.
