EBOLA UPDATE/RESOURCES  

 

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Updated Guidance:  Monitoring Symptoms and Controlling Movement to Stop Spread of Ebola.


Guidance defines four risk levels based on degree of exposure:  high risk, some risk, low risk and no risk, and provides recommended actions based on those levels.  Of course, governors may still take action that is inconsistent with CDC guidance.   Fact Sheet, click here.

 

ANA has again joined with the American Hospital Association and American Medical Association to issue a joint statement of support for the CDC Guidance.    Statement, click here.

ANA Activities Related to Ebola

ANA is partnering with the International Medical Corps, a non-governmental organization that has established clinics and relations in Sierra Leon and Liberia.  They have reached out to ANA for assistance in recruiting nurses who would be willing to volunteer and provide nursing care in these two countries.  International Medical Corps will provide training, personal protective equipment and logistical support.  In addition, we are recommending that financial donations be made to either International Medical Corps or ICN’s Florence Nightingale International Foundation.    Finally, ANA has created an information webpage dedicated to Ebola - http://nursingworld.org//Ebola-Information.
