Statement from Muenster Memorial Hospital re: Ebola preparation

Muenster Memorial Hospital is monitoring the Centers for Disease Control website, as well as the Department of State Health Services and Dallas Emergency Operations Center, for updates and changes regarding the Ebola situation on an hourly basis.  An Ebola screening questionnaire has been implemented on the nursing and physician side of all admissions, including patients seen in the emergency room.  Policies and procedures specific to Ebola are in place.  Education and information sessions are being held with employees to keep them informed and educated.  An education session was just completed this afternoon relevant to proper technique in using personal protective equipment (gowns, gloves, masks). Muenster Memorial has also been in contact with Cooke County Emergency Management and will participate in all countywide activities.
