Ebola Patient Transport Drill  Johns Hopkins Medicine and Lifeline
Designated teams at all of the Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals have trained for many months to respond to the likelihood that we would care for a patient with Ebola virus disease. To fortify these preparedness plans, a drill was conducted on Nov. 6 to simulate the transport of two patients with Ebola being transferred from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center to The Johns Hopkins Hospital. As part of the drill, two people with symptoms of Ebola presented themselves in Johns Hopkins Bayview’s Emergency Department. Staff from Johns Hopkins Bayview and the Johns Hopkins Lifeline team donned and doffed their protective personal equipment, and Lifeline used specialized equipment to take them by ambulance to The Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Emergency Department. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/ebola/
