Anderson Regional Medical Center is prepared to respond to the presence of the Ebola virus, should it arrive in our community. As with any threat of biological illness or community disaster, Anderson has plans in place that guide our actions to ensure safe, timely and appropriate care. Anderson’s specific action plans regarding the Ebola virus are being guided by information received from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Mississippi State Department of Health.

Dr. Scot Bell, Chief Medical Officer; Dr. Amina Goodwin- Fernandez, Infectious Disease Specialist; Andrea Laird, RN,MSN, CIC, Director of Infection Control; and John Bates RN, Emergency Management Coordinator; are leading Anderson’s Ebola Task Force. This team has developed and implemented thorough preparedness practices for our staff and physicians. The Anderson staff has been educated on topics such as recognizing the signs and symptoms of Ebola, proper donning and doffing of personal protective equipment, and proper handling of infected patients and his/her lab specimens. Anderson has increased the quantity of supplies needed to care for isolated patients.

To help quickly identify possible infected patients, a Travel Risk Assessment questionnaire has been added to the admissions process. Unless there is travel history to a West African country or direct contact with an Ebola patient, the chances of contracting Ebola is very low. Symptoms of Ebola include fever, headache, weakness, muscle pain, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or hemorrhage.

(Source: Ebola is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with a strain of Ebola virus. The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. The risk of an Ebola outbreak affecting multiple people in the U.S. is very low. Please visit the link below to find more information about the Ebola virus.
