What U.S. Healthcare Facilities Need to Know about Ebola and Infection Control
The recent Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa has increased the need for U.S. healthcare facilities to be prepared to handle potential patients with Ebola virus disease. Additionally, two American citizens with Ebola virus disease have been medically evacuated to the United States to receive care in a U.S. hospital. During this Twitter chat, CDC will answer clinicians’ questions on what steps U.S. healthcare facilities can take to prepare for the possibility of caring for a patient with Ebola virus disease.
CDC will host a Twitter chat tomorrow – Friday, August 8th from 2-3PM ET on what US hospitals need to know about Ebola and infection control. CDC experts will be available to answer questions live during the chat. Follow @CDCgov on Twitter, and use the hashtag #CDCchat to participate in the chat.
