Open Letter from HHS re: Ebola

HRSADr. Nicole Lurie, HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, has issued an open letter to all frontline health care providers.  The full letter can be accessed here.

In short, providers need to:

  •        Detect: Ask All Patients with Non-Specific Complaints About Recent Travel
  •        Protect: Use Good Infection Control Practices
  •        Respond: Have a Plan

In addition, the CDC website has many important resources for clinicians to learn more about Ebola.
