EBOLA: Dr Charles Nemeroff's Alma Mater - Emory - Admits Another Patient/CDC & HHS Create Hospital Ebola Checklist In Wake of World Crisis

You are witnessing the mad planning scramble for Ebola, which, with all of Pelosi's Illegal Baby Jesuses swarming across our non existent border, 

West Africans Are Streaming Across the U.S. Southern Border carrying the Ebola Virus.


Another patient admitted to Emory Hospital in Atlanta for treatment

As the Ebola virus outbreak spirals out of control into a world-wide crisis, with a death toll of more than 1,100 and counting, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response this week released achecklist for hospitals to help clinicians manage patients carrying the virus.

The checklist aims to give hospital staff, particularly clinical practitioners, and emergency and infection control managers, a rundown of what to review if and when an Ebola patient arrives at their hospitals. Despite the small number of known Ebola virus disease (EVD) cases in the United States, the checklist states, "now is the time to prepare, as it is possible that individuals with EVD in West Africa may travel to the United States, exhibit signs and symptoms of EVD and present to facilities."

The checklist urges hospitals to:

Train frontline workers to recognize Ebola's signs and symptoms

  • Review emergency department triage procedures
  • Keep state or local health departments in the loop during the testing stages
  • Make sure lab personnel understand specimen collection/transport/testing guidelines
In August, the CDC issued guidelines for patients unconfirmed to be carrying the virus but exhibiting symptomsFierceHealthcare previously reported.

So far American hospitals have treated four confirmed cases. A fourth patient from West Africa carrying the Ebola virus arrived this week at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, the third to seek treatment at the hospital, according to CBS 46.Emory hospital previously treated two American missionaries who have since been discharged. A third American, a doctor from Worcester, Massachusetts who was treating pregnant women in the ELWA Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia, is currently receiving treatment at Nebraska Medical Center.

The unidentified patient is currently being assessed, Aneesh Metha, M.D., of Emory told CBS 46, and hospital staff will concentrate on the patient's "long run support of the body's reparative mechanism so they can heal." Emory CEO Bob Bachman said the hospital "felt a moral obligation" to accept patients with the virusFierceHealthcare previously reported.

Meanwhile, researchers say 15 more countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Mozambique and Malawi, are at risk of Ebola exposure, according to an Oxford study published in the journal eLife. "Increasing population sizes and international connectivity by air since the first detection of EVD in 1976 suggest that the dynamics of human-to-human secondary transmission in contemporary outbreaks will be very different to those of the past," the study states. The World Health Organization has declared the virus outbreak an international emergency.

DHS Fines American $5K For Border Jumping

No joke.

U.S. Border Patrol agents slapped a $5,000 fine on an American citizen this week for slipping into the United States from Canada on a mountain bike, the agency announced Wednesday.
The 40-year-old American and his 44-year-old Canadian companion were nabbed Sunday near Houlton, Maine, after allegedly biking across the border south of Notre Dame, Canada, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
A Border Patrol agent spotted the two men at about 2:30 p.m. with mountain bikes on a dirt road near the border. After questioning the suspects, the agent arrested them for illegally crossing the border.
Each was fined $5,000, said CBP.
If the same penalty was applied to American’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrations, the federal government could collect $55 billion.

Thank You Wash Times and Zip.
