CDC Issues New Guidelines for Hospital Workers Providing Ebola Care

New York Times (10/20/14) Donald G. McNeil Jr.

Hospital workers who care for patients infected by Ebola should be aware of new guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new guidelines—which were reviewed by specialists at American hospitals—mirror the strict protocols used by Doctors Without Borders, says CDC executive director Thomas R. Frieden. The voluntary guidelines say that no skin should be left uncovered; street clothes and shoes should be replaced with waterproof fabric and boots; and every step of putting on and taking off equipment must be done under the eyes of a supervisor whose job it is to prevent mistakes. Rather than recommend the use of sprayed disinfectant for hospital workers, the guidelines call for the use of bleach wipes.
