Patient Screening

The confirmation of an Ebola case in Dallas has led virtually ALL healthcare providers to integrate Ebola screening questions into EVERY patient interaction. In concert with our local hospital, EMS, and first response partners we recommend inclusion of the two CDC screening questions into all EMS encounters.

 


The infographic is available for download at the bottom of this page in case you want to host it elsewhere. The MEDS team is working to quickly integrate these two questions into MEDS 4.

Reminders:
  • The EVHC Clinician Hotline, 855-448-1742, is available to provide 24-hour support to AMR leaders and medical directors. The hotline is staffed by Evolution Health Nurse Navigators in the Medical Command Center in Dallas and is supported by the Logis technology. The navigators have access to Ebola-related information, protocols and resources.

We continue to monitor all our clinical sources for new information and guidelines. Again, we believe our caregivers are prepared to respond safely and provide appropriate care to patients with any infectious disease including Ebola.

Please reinforce among our caregiver community that protection is simple: hand-washing before and after each patient contact and stringent blood and body fluid precautions.
