Emory University Hospital Commitment to Community

Good morning

There was an amazing story on NPR this morning about the preparation and commitment to infection control by the Emory Healthcare.  You can read and listen to the story here.  Their multi-year commitment to preparedness for infectious disease control, training of staff, preparation of facilities and of sharing their own best practices is amazing.

They have developed and keep updating an 84 page Ebola protocol.  For those who are interested this protocol can be downloaded here.
