Sinusitis: Sinus Infection Deals a Corporate KO
Sinusitis and Sinus Infection Starts with a Little Sniffle
Yes, I hear it too. A simple sniffle in a distant cubical. No big deal. But wait. There went another. Before long the office uproars in a virtual canon of sniffing, and it is more alarming then musical. Little do they know that a little sniffle might indicate the onset of one of the most expensive corporate costs common to most businesses - sinus infection and sinusitis -unless the business is prepared to nip it in the bud early that is.
Sinusitis and Sinus Infection
Sinusitis is an advanced sinus infection, usually beginning with the post-nasal drip from sniffing during cold season, when weather changes, or during allergy attacks. The head has four nasal cavities which, if blocked by inflammation or mucous, will breed bacterial growth and eventual sinus infection and sinusitis.
Depending upon the severity of the blow, a sinus infection or sinusitis could affect your employees for periods ranging between 3 weeks and several months. Many attacks occur several times a year. Because a sinus infection may develop and lead to sinusitis at any time, businesses must not overlook the corporate cost. Be prepared.
Corporate Cost of Sinus Infection and Sinusitis
$5.8 billion a year is not what the American businesses want as an annual expense. But most businesses might as well add sinusitis or sinus infection to its balance sheet, they have been paying for it in recent years and it will keep coming back - kind of reminds you of Rocky Balboa.
Why should businesses be so concerned about sinusitis and sinus infection? Here are a few numbers they might want to analyze. Reports indicate that between 31 and 32 million Americans are affected by sinusitis or sinus infection each year, resulting in about 18 million healthcare visits. These visits, of course, are part of company health plans.
Not convinced yet? This may not seem like that much of a business expense until you add the expense of sinusitis and sinus infection performing a virtual KO of your office. Sinusitis and sinus infection knocks out professionals for an average of 4 days per year. Not to mention the affect sinusitis and sinus infection have on the productivity of those who come to work affected by sinusitis and sinus infection. The affect is similar to those suffering from sinus allergies in that about one-third of affected employees feel that these sinus problems make them less effective at work. That is a costly corporate hit.
