The rates of nosocomial seasonal (January 2008 to March 2009) and 2009 A/H1N1 (April 2009 to December 2010) influenza infections in a children’s hospital were compared. Droplet precautions were used. The rates were similar during both periods, suggesting that use of droplet precautions did not result in a higher rate of influenza A/H1N1 infection.
