We reported 2009 H1N1 influenza infections among healthcare workers (HCWs) and inpatients and the prevention measures instituted in a large Chinese hospital. In total, 171 HCWs and 89 inpatients tested positive for H1N1. Sixteen HCWs had known hospital exposure, among whom only 7 had working-contact exposure. There was no influenza outbreak.
