Survey shows hospital staff are better trained to confront Ebola

Survey shows hospital staff are better trained to confront Ebola

Infection prevention and control (IPC) leaders say their facilities are more prepared today than a year ago to handle a patient with a highly infectious disease like the Ebola virus, but ICP leaders are concerned that many organizations are not providing adequate manpower resources to protect patients and health care workers. These were two of the key underlying messages in the data from a survey of Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) members. The survey, which drew responses from 981 of APIC’s 15,000 members, was conducted in September and released in November to determine ongoing needs a year after the first Ebola patient was admitted to a U.S. hospital.
