NEW YORK (AP) - Public
hospitals in New York City are so
concerned about Ebola, they've

rooms to test how well the triage
staffs identify and isolate possible

There hasn't been a single con-
firmed case of an Ebola infection
happening on U.S. soil; the case
confirmed in Dallas involves a
man who, like several health care
workers treated in the U.S., con-
tracted the virus in Liberia. But
health care providers are worried
enough to take a wide variety of
It isn't yet clear whether these
preparations are overkill, or not
But health care experts say
that at the very least, the scare is
providing a chance to reinforce
and test infection control proce-
"The attention has been, in a
sad way, very helpful," said Dr.
Richard Wenzel, an epidemiolo-
gist at Virginia Commonwealth
University and a former president
of the International Society for
Infectious Diseases.
Even small hospitals far from
international travel, hubs should
be reviewing protocols and
screening questions, and poten-
tially buying protective equip-
ment such as face masks and
protective suits, he said. This will
help them avoid repeating the

mistakes of Dallas, where a Libe-
rian man with Ebola symptoms
was sent away despite telling
a hospital staffer he had trav-
eled from Africa, and potentially
infected many others before he
was readmitted two days later.
"The debacle in Texas should
stimulate improved awareness
and responses," Wenzel said.
A growing number of false
alarms are already giving hos-
pitals around the country ample
opportunities to test infection
control procedures.
In New York, 24 patients
screened for Ebola have been put
into isolation over the past eight
weeks in city-owned hospitals,
accordingto Dr. Ross Wilson, the
chief medical officer at the New
York City Health and Hospitals
Corporation. None had the dis-
ease (some had malaria and one
had typhoid), but Wilson said iso-
lating potential cases as quickly
as possible is essential to keep the
virus from spreading.
"We're taking this very seri-
ously," he said.
Emergency room staffers have
been confronted with actors to
test their triage measures, and
some have been retrained on how
to properly put on and remove
protective gear, Wilson said.
At the city's flagship. Bellevue
Hospital Center, technicians are
assembling a lab to exclusively
handle Ebola blood tests, keep-
ing samples from contaminat-
ing other equipment, and a small
number of beds are ready and
waiting in an isolation ward for
any confirmed cases.
New York City's 911 operators
have been told to ask people who
describe Ebola-like symptoms
and ask for ambulances if they've
traveled to West Africa recently.
That question is also becoming
private ambulances in 40 states.
It has told its staff of 19,000
paramedics and EMTs that if
patients with these symptoms
answer yes, they must alert other
health authorities and put on
extra protective gear, including
shoe coverings, a mask and gog-

"We don't want to respond

Ed Racht, AMR's chief medical
officer. "The idea is, if the travel
question is positive with the
... It doesn't mean immediately
putting on the space suits."
That said, the company has
issued step-by-step instructions
for using plastic sheeting, gar-
bage bags and ducttapecto protect
the ambulance and driver from
patients with the virus. Step No.

A more commonplace pre-
caution is in place at the Mercer
County Community Hospital
in Coldwater, Ohio, a village of
4,400 people near the Indiana
state border. Nicole Pleiman, an
infection prevention and control
nurse, said the hospital posted
signs at entrances a month ago
telling patients to notify the staff
immediately if they've traveled
recently to African countries hit
by the outbreak.
"We will definitely revisit that
to see if we need to do anything
additional," she said.
And three major hospitals in
Dallas have established isolation
units and consulted with staff on
handling anyone else with Ebola.
With eight children sent home
from school because they had
direct contact with the lone con-
firmed Ebola victim, Children's
Memorial Hospital in northwest
Dallas is preparing for pediat-
ric Ebola patients, and doctors
at Parkland Memorial Hospital
and Baylor University 'Medical
Center have identified teams of
doctors and nurses to be ready.
As has' become commonplace
nationwide, the Dallas hospitals
are screening incoming patients
to see if they've traveled to West
Africa within the last three
