Time- And Cost-Effective Strategies

  1. Do not delay in instituting preventative measures and effective infection control measures to protect healthcare personnel. Current CDC recommendation includes standard, droplet, contact, and isolation precautions as well as PPE for all persons involved in a patient’s care.
  2. Do not perform excessive and unnecessary laboratory tests. Staff safety needs to be ensured; therefore, minimal tests should be performed in order to reduce employee exposure.
  3. Include Ebola in the differential diagnosis of patients with appropriate travel histories by maintaining a high index of suspicion. Initially, EVD may present in a similar fashion as other more common childhood illnesses; given the 2014 epidemic, it is important to keep Ebola in mind when assessing patients.
