CDC Releases Infection Prevention Recommendations for Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever in U.S. Hospitals

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Hospitalized Patients with Known or Suspected Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever in U.S. Hospitals. Standard, contact and droplet precautions are recommended for any patients with known or suspected Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Though these recommendations focus on the hospital setting, the recommendations for personal protective equipment (PPE) and environmental infection control measures are applicable to any healthcare setting. This guidance is not intended to apply to persons outside of healthcare settings. As additional information becomes available, these recommendations will be re-evaluated and updated as needed.
