Maryland hospital emergency departments filled with young RSV patients

Respiratory syncytial virus infections continue to cause major problems at Maryland hospitals. Pediatricians at Sinai Hospital in northwest Baltimore are saying emergency departments are slammed with RSV cases. Dr. Scott Krugman, vice chairman of pediatrics at Sinai, said children's hospitals across the Mid-Atlantic are reaching capacity due to RSV. Krugman said Sinai is seeing many children under 2 years old filling the in-patient ICU beds, and it's taking a long time for them to get better. In some cases, as long as seven days.
