AB  - BACKGROUND: Health care personnel (HCP) working while experiencing influenza-like
      illness (ILI) contribute to influenza transmission in health care settings.
      Studies focused on certain HCP occupations or work settings have demonstrated
      that some HCP often continue to work while ill. METHODS: Using a national
      nonprobability Internet panel survey of 1,914 HCP during the 2014-2015 influenza 
      season, we calculated the frequency of working with self-reported ILI (ie, fever 
      and cough or sore throat) and examined reasons for working with ILI by occupation
      and work setting. RESULTS: Overall, 414 (21.6%) HCP reported ILI, and 183 (41.4%)
      reported working with ILI (median, 3 days; range, 0-30 days). Pharmacists (67.2%)
      and physicians (63.2%) had the highest frequency of working with ILI. By work
      setting, hospital-based HCP had the highest frequency of working with ILI
      (49.3%). The most common reasons for working while ill included still being able 
      to perform job duties and not feeling bad enough to miss work. Among HCP at
      long-term care facilities, the most common reason was inability to afford lost
      pay. CONCLUSIONS: More than 40% of HCP with ILI work while ill. To reduce
      HCP-associated influenza transmission, potential interventions could target HCP
      misconceptions about working while ill and paid sick leave policies.
