What Johns Hopkins is Doing About Ebola

At Johns Hopkins Medicine, every effort is made to ensure our staff, patients and visitors are well-informed about our Ebola virus disease preparedness efforts. In our commitment to safety, we are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines to detect potential cases of Ebola; protect patients, visitors and staff members; and respond appropriately.

Each hospital within our system has identified designated units to care for patients suspected or confirmed to have Ebola. We have reviewed and identified equipment to be used by health care workers and are currently involved in rigorous training for those in teams most likely to care for these patients.
