St. Luke’s medical staff and clinical employees must be prepared to identify and appropriately and safely manage the care and isolation of patients presenting with potential Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and/or exposure.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on October 1, through laboratory tests, the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States in a person who had traveled to Dallas, Texas from Liberia. Read the CDC press release for details. On August 28, St. Luke’s Infection Prevention Department distributed screening and patient algorithms for clinics/EDs and for hospitals to all St. Luke’s clinics and Emergency Departments.
On October 2, the CDC distributed an algorithm for Evaluation of the Returned Traveler and a Checklist for Patients Being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the United States.
St. Luke’s clinics and hospitals are at low risk for patients presenting with Ebola. St. Luke’s clinics and hospitals have the skills and resources needed to follow the CDC guidelines for screening and management of potential Ebola patients.
Timely and effective communication is a must, and our Infection Prevention personnel are well prepared.
Follow the algorithms developed by our Infection Prevention Department for clinics/EDs and for hospitals. Call Infection Prevention at 381-2147 if you have any questions or concerns. For additional Ebola information and resources, visit the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/.
The most valuable thing we have is our health. And the most valuable thing St. Luke's can do is help you live as healthy a life as possible. We're taking care forward as we develop new ways—and refine the tried and true—to improve health, improve care, and lower costs.
