CDC to Hold Ebola Preparedness Courses

Courses on hospital preparedness for staff from designated Ebola assessment hospitals are being offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Attendees will learn how to prepare facilities and staff to receive, isolate, and care for patients being evaluated for Ebola. Ebola assessment hospitals are designated as points of referral for individuals who are being actively monitored and who develop symptoms consistent with Ebola. Up to five staff members from these hospitals, along with up to three staff members from their corresponding state health departments, are invited to attend one of the following sessions:

The CDC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response previously released a detailed checklist for hospitals to prepare for the risk of Ebola. The checklist includes practical and specific suggestions to help hospitals and providers detect cases, protect employees, and respond effectively.
