KershawHealth implements Ebola preparedness plan
Placeholder Image
The current focus on the death of a patient with Ebola in Dallas and the subsequent infection of two nurses at the same hospital, as well as the global nature of travel today, has led some to wonder how community hospitals might deal with possible Ebola patients. As it does with any actual or potential public health emergency, KershawHealth has created policies and procedures for Ebola preparedness. In addition, the hospital is working closely with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the S.C. Hospital Association (SCHA) to amend its plan as necessary, and is continually updating and educating staff members.
