PerspectiveAre frontline hospitals ready for a patient with Ebola?

Published 7 May 2019

Investigators sampled five major frontline hospitals in Maricopa County, Arizona, to perform a gap analysis in how their response would be for a patient with Ebola or another high-consequence pathogen. Saskia v. Popescu writes in Contagion Live that from entering the hospital through the emergency department to cleansing and disinfecting protocols, the investigators evaluated whether health care workers could still answer the questions that were heavily drilled into these hospitals in 2014 following the Ebola cluster in Dallas.
