CDC Issues Ebola Preparedness Reminder to US Health Care Facilities

The ongoing outbreak of Ebola virus disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo serves as a reminder for US healthcare facilities to review their infection prevention and control processes to safely identify and manage patients with communicable infections. A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention communication reviews the steps that facilities should implement as a routine part of triage to quickly identify, isolate and inform public health authorities about patients who may have communicable infections; current Ebola infection prevention and control recommendations for U.S. health care facilities; the U.S. Regional Treatment Network for Ebola and Other Special Pathogens; and other resources.
