Houston Healthcare Takes Precautions for EBOLA Prevention

Houston Healthcare is working with the Centers for Disease Control and North Central Health District to understand what is required of our hospital, including staff, equipment, supplies, and facilities, whenever anyone comes to our hospital with what could be an infectious disease. Our primary concern is high quality care and the safety of our patients, visitors, staff and community.

Houston Healthcare has a robust Infection-control system and our staff is trained and prepared to take care of patients with infectious diseases to include EVD.  HHC has Infection Control and Emergency Management policies in place to address these types of situations.
 

  • Ebola virus is spread through direct contact with the blood or body fluids (including but not limited to feces, saliva, urine, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola. The virus in blood and body fluids can enter another person’s body through broken skin or unprotected mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • The virus also can be spread through contact with objects (like needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with the virus, or with infected animals.
  • Ebola is not spread through the air or by water or, in general, by food; however, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bush meat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats.
