CDC to release stricter Ebola guidelines for health care workers

AABB SmartBrief | Oct 20, 2014

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will update protocols for protecting health care workers as they treat Ebola-infected patients, and the requirements will include covering all skin and hair, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The guidelines will call for the use of anterooms for donning and removing protective gear, as well as a buddy system in which caregivers will check one another.
