ACC CV Quality SmartBrief | Oct 14, 2014

U.S. hospitals should become more knowledgeable about diagnosing and preventing Ebola infection, CDC Director Thomas Frieden said Monday. Following the death of Thomas Eric Duncan from Ebola, 26-year-old Dallas nurse Nina Pham tested positive for the disease, becoming the first known Ebola transmission in the U.S. "We have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control because even a single infection is unacceptable," Frieden said.
