CDC issues new Ebola guidelines for health care workers

AAP SmartBrief | Oct 21, 2014

The CDC has released new guidelines for health care workers treating patients with Ebola. The new guidelines stress the use of protective garments, requiring workers to be "repeatedly trained" when it comes to putting on and taking off their personal protective equipment, leaving no skin exposed while caring for infected patients. All workers will be supervised by a trained observer or site manager to ensure protective protocols are followed while removing and putting on protective gear.
