We all work in very busy environments, have multiple distractions, and all our budgets are being stretched. We created a very simple 2 -step screening process for EBOLA that we hope is simple enough for you to use as a foundation for your screening process. Check it out in the Feature Section. Let us know your ideas and comments.

When you look at the guidance you get variable recommendation, often based on the resources of the health care community. Infectious disease experts feel "contact precautions" are all that is needed. When you look at pictures of HCW in West Africa, you see higher levels of protection being worn. Check out: http://www.who.int/csr/disease/ebola/en/ . As frontline health care provider what precautions would want to take if you were looking after a person with EBOLA? and why?

Ebola is taking the headlines away from MERS, does that mean the threat is less? Should we be screening for both MERS and Ebola? Hajj is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca and the largest gathering of Muslim people in the world every year. This year it occurs October 2-6, 2014. The Saudi are gearing up and taking precautions to monitor for infections: http://www.saudiembassy.net/latest_news/news08291401.aspx How can we adapt their MERS Screening knowledge to non-endemic areas?

Protected Code Blue is the utilization of Personal Protection Equipment during a resuscitation of a patient with a high risk febrile illness i.e. posed a threat to the HCW. It includes the use of PPE for intubation and airway management procedures that may cause aerosolization of respiratory/oral secretions. When and what to use is unclear. Check out our Gallery for our Protected Code Blue pptx. and post your thoughts.
