I'd stay home since elder people have compromised immune systems and can't cope with much. They pick up everything.

I find it disturbing your company does not have a policy about this. If you do, and eventually need to come to work, perhaps a face mask is appropriate.

I would stay home. If you go to work, you will spread the illness to patients and those less healthy. If you feel well enough to work, at least wear a mask and wash your hands often. I'm retired now, but I can't tell you how angry I was when a co-worker brought illness to the office and I ended up sick in bed because of it.

The way I decide is, if I have a fever, I stay home. A fever indicates something contagious, infectious, etc. No fever, and I do go to work.

You say you have the flu, I'd imagine that means fever and chills...I do understand that it means your work will be understaffed, but if you go in, they are likely to be WAY more understaffed as everyone else will get sick, including the patients.

Also, as an office worker, I HATE it when my co workers come in to work sick. I build a wall of lysol around my cube...I don't want to get sick either!
