Lourdes Official Statement - Media Coverage Regarding Ebola Screening Procedures
On October 14th, 2014 at Lourdes Medical Center, three individuals presented to the Lab for previously ordered blood work. While at Lourdes, they were appropriately screened per Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for Ebola Virus Disease. The patients were from Africa and have been in the country for less than three weeks.
At the Lab, the patients did not present signs or symptoms of Ebola Virus Disease, but due to heightened sensitivity, the patients were interviewed about recent travel and health and found to have recently arrived in the country from Eastern Africa, which is not a location of the current Ebola Virus Disease outbreak. Through collaboration with the Health Department, it was determined that the patients had no symptoms of the disease and the Health Department cleared the patients.
Our Lourdes’ Infection Control Practitioner urges the public not to be alarmed, but to be responsibly prepared. Over the past month, Lourdes has developed an interdisciplinary team and action plan to screen and respond to the potential for Ebola Disease Virus and provide quality care to our community.
