It’s not just about Ebola

We need to be prepared to treat patients with Ebola in our wound and hyperbaric centers even if it is very unlikely that we will be asked to do so since most of our centers serve outpatients only.  But what we learn from the Ebola crisis is hopefully helping us improve our methods of prevention for MRSA, C diff, Pseudomonas and VRE which are all serious healthcare acquired infections with far more people suffering with it and dying from each year.  See Comprehensive Healthcare’s training link titled “That is not in MY chamber!”
