Monday, October 20th, 2014 - Protecting workers & communities from Ebola
It is important to recognize that Emergency Departments, Urgent Care, Primary Care and Pediatric Care facilities may be among the first to manage EVD if the virus spreads in the United States. The symptoms range from mild to severe depending on disease progression and the ability of the patient to fight the virus. Raising awareness of risk factors for Ebola infection and protective measures individuals should take is an effective way to reduce transmission of the diseases.
For dental practices, the ADA has contacted the CDC for guidance and as with any other healthcare facility screening of patients with symptoms of EVD is critical. Likelihood of presentation in a dental practice is low, but awareness is critical for all healthcare providers. At this time the recommendation remains to follow basic infection control practices.
If you have not done so, consider placing a notification in your patient reception area asking patients to notify your staff if they or their family members have recently traveled to West Africa. Communication is critical with patients and between team members.
