Ill. hospital reports first 2 flu cases for the season
Jerseyville Community Hospital in Illinois already has seen two flu patients this season and Chief Nurse Julie Smith said while staff is prepared for the flu season, people also must pay attention to what's happening. The hospital has stocked up on flu medication and recommends people get a flu shot, while staff members are getting vaccinations against influenza.

Chicago-area hospitals give ED patients free naloxone kits
Chicago-area hospitals are giving free naloxone kits to patients treated in the emergency department for opioid overdoses or addiction so they have the medication on hand at home. Since 2016, the Cook County Health and Hospitals System has provided naloxone kits to newly released inmates of the Cook County Jail system.
