Detailed Hospital Checklist for Ebola Preparedness Mobile App

Every hospital should ensure that it can detect a patient with Ebola, protect healthcare workers so they can safely care for the patient, and respond in a coordinated fashion. Many of the signs and symptoms of Ebola are non-specific and similar to those of many common infectious diseases, as well as other infectious diseases with high mortality rates. Transmission can be prevented with appropriate infection control measures. In order to enhance our collective preparedness and response efforts, the Detailed Hospital Checklist for Ebola Preparedness mobile app highlights key areas for hospital staff -- especially hospital emergency management officers, infection control practitioners, and clinical practitioners -- to review in preparation for a person with Ebola arriving at a hospital for medical care. The checklist provides practical and specific suggestions to ensure your hospital is able to detect possible Ebola cases, protect your employees, and respond appropriately. MyCanvas (My GoCanvas) allows GoCanvas subscribers to share their data with their customers via a web portal (my.gocanvas.com).
