How U.S. Health Providers Are Expanding Their Ebola Precautions

Source: www.theblaze.com – Monday, October 06, 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — Public hospitals in New York City are concerned enough about Ebola that they’ve secretly been sending actors with mock symptoms into emergency rooms to test how good the triage staff is at identifying and isolating possible cases. A small hospital in the Ohio countryside has hung up signs, imploring patients to let nurses know if they have traveled recently to West Africa. FILE – This Oct. 3, 3014, file photo, shows an isolation room that could be used to quarantine an Ebola patient at Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn. The hospital has put together an action plan and staff will be going through training to deal with the possibility of an Ebola virus infected patient. (AP Photo/Chattanooga Times Free Press, Doug Strickland, File) And one of the nation’s largest ambulance companies has written step-by-step instructions on how to wrap the interior of a rig with plastic sheeting while transporting a patient. Ebola has yet to infect a single person on U.S. soil — the one confirmed case here involves a man who contracted the virus overseas. But health care providers are worried enough that they are taking a variety of precautions. — Read more stories from TheBlaze Woman Interrupts Restaurant Patrons With Tears and Screams, ‘This Isn’t Food, It’s Violence!’ — Wait Until You See Why Here’s the Picture Involving Two Children That Atheists Are Demanding Officials Remove From a School — and the District’s Bold Response
