Tip of The Week- Foodborne Illnesses

Foodborne diseases are caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Since there are plenty of pathogens causing this, there is no single “syndrome” for foodborne diseases, however,there are common early symptoms that are GIT related including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.

Most cases of foodborne illnesses are minor and can be treated with increasing fluid intake to replace lost fluids from vomiting and diarrhea episodes. In severe cases, hospitalization and medical attention may be required.

To prevent the spread and help the public protect themselves from foodborne infections, nurses should educate them on how the disease is spread as well as preventive measures such as proper food handling, cooking food thoroughly, checking expiration dates on packed or canned food products, refrigerating food intended to be consumed for later, observing proper handwashing and more.
