Via the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare: Press Release on the Ebola Virus Disease epidemic in Liberia, June 24. Excerpt:
The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has instituted several safety measures to prevent health workers from exposure to the Ebola virus at various health facilities throughout the country. The measures come in the wake of reports that some health workers are NOT adhering to infection control measures in handling patients, especially those suspected of being infected with Ebola.
Some of the measures include the use of protective clothing when attending to patients suspected of Ebola or have signs and symptoms of the disease; identification of temporary isolation room for any patient suspected of the disease before referral can be made to the Ebola Isolation Center.
Health facilities are also requested to carry out orientation for all staff on Ebola Prevention, and train clinical staff on the management of Ebola or suspected Ebola patients.
