Infection Control Resources -Ebola

Currently there are no cases of Ebola in New Hampshire, however the state and medical community are discussing the emergency response, should a case present itself.  The entire spectrum of health care, including home care, is reviewing CDC and WHO guidelines, as well as sharing preparedness checklists for Ebola preparations, participating in webinars with NH public health officials and discussing resource needs such as adequate protective equipment and isolation capacity. Infectious Disease Specialists, Infection Prevention Coordinators and Hospital Emergency Preparedness Coordinators, among others, have been an integral part of the planning and discussions.

NH DHHS has prepared many documents and links on Ebola including Fact Sheets, FAQs, Travel Advisories and checklists for healthcare providers, health care facilities and EMS personnel and Health Alerts and can be found at: http://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/ebola.htm
