So here comes news that a doctor in NYC has ebola. He treated patients with doctors without borders in Africa.. Doctors Without Borders is at the forefront of ebola treatment. In other words they know what they are doing when it comes to isolation procedures and equipment. This proves, that despite all of that, you can get ebola. Yet they keep telling healthcare workers the chances are so, so low... As of about september 1st, 240 healthcare workers in Africa developed ebola, 120 died.
Today I asked someone from infection control if, after we cared for a patient with ebola, we would keep working and taking care of other patients. Answer: yes.
BTW, if you would like to donate to Doctors Without Borders, a truly awesome organization, go here.
