Identify, Isolate, Inform: CDC Releases New Guidance for Emergency Department Evaluation and Management for Patients Presenting with Possible Ebola Virus Disease

CDC Releases New Guidance CDC released new guidance for Emergency Departments (ED) on evaluating and managing patients presenting with possible Ebola Virus Disease. Because early symptoms of Ebola Virus Disease are similar to other febrile illnesses, triage and evaluation processes in the ED should consider and systematically assess patients for the possibility of the disease.

Identify exposure history and Ebola-compatible symptoms:
Take a relevant patient history, including exposure criteria of whether the patient lived in or traveled to a country with widespread Ebola transmission or had contact with an individual with confirmed Ebola Virus Disease within the previous 21 days. Check patient for fever (subjective or >100.4°F or 38.0°C) or Ebola-compatible symptoms: headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, or hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding gums, blood in urine, nose bleeds, coffee ground emesis or melena).

Isolate the patient and determine personal protective equipment (PPE) needed:
Place patient in private room or separate enclosed area with private bathroom or covered, bedside commode. Only essential personnel with designated roles should evaluate patient and provide care to minimize transmission risk. Choose the PPE recommended for the patient’s clinical status.

Inform health officials:
IMMEDIATELY notify the hospital infection control program and other appropriate staff, as well as the health department.
To read the full guidance, visit CDC’s Ebola website: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/ed-management-patients-possible-ebola.html.

CDC Vaccine Information Statements Update

You are subscribed to CDC’s Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) email subscription service. The Pediatric Multi-vaccine vaccine information statement has recently been updated and is now available.

This VIS may be used in place of the individual VISs for DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, Polio, and PCV13 when two or more of these vaccines are administered during the same visit. It may be used for infants through children receiving their routine 4-6 year vaccines.

This VIS no longer includes rotavirus vaccine, because its unique recommendations aren’t easily harmonized with those for other infant vaccines. The individual rotavirus VIS should be used.

Remaining stocks of the previous edition of the multi-vaccine VIS should be discarded, and this edition should be used beginning now.
