How children's hospitals are handling the RSV surge
As Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children nears capacity, the health department notes double the amount of RSV cases as last year.
Colorado's health department says RSV hospitalizations are double from the same time last year.
"We are seeing a surge in all respiratory viruses, including RSV," said Dr. Reginald Washington, chief medical officer of Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. "We're not at capacity yet, but we have become very close, not only in our intensive care unit but in our general medical surgical unit as well."
