Most of us have heard of the unusual EV- D68 Enterovirus in eastern ID. EIRMC has had largest amount of patients, as would be expected due to their PICU and medical staff.

I've never heard the radio and tv media butcher a name as badly as this one. Enter. - like walk through the door- is how Enterovirus is pronounced. Just like Gastroenteritis. Most mumble some unusual pronunciation. IDK why the media can't get this right here. Please try to get it right.

Here's a link about symptoms

What You Need to Know About Enterovirus (EV-D68) - Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center | Idaho Falls, ID

The good news is the Pediatric Critical Care Physicians and nursing staff have gotten all the kiddos better and home.

Hmmm, maybe back to the drawing board about how many infectious disease (isolation) beds will be in the new PICU, or maybe kids will be isolated with adults with peds nurses. Either way, having successfully treated 20 peds patients at EIRMC may bring about more discussion of where these patients will be admitted in the Pediatric Tower.
