Children’s National Hospital Is Near Capacity

(Washington, DC) — A warning for parents in the nation’s capital. More kids are getting sick from RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) and the flu. In fact it’s so bad, Children’s National Hospital is nearly full. Officials say they’re dealing with a surge of patients and expect that to continue for a while. This means families wanting to be seen for non-emergencies will have to wait even longer. The hospital suggests in these cases, it might be easier to see a primary care doctor or visit an urgent care.
