HATTIESBURG — Forrest General Hospital says it has a plan in place to address Ebola.
The hospital reports training and drills have been underway to assure staff that safety measures are in place for their protection and the protection of patients. Plans will continue to be adjusted as new information is provided by the Center for Disease Control.
An isolation area has been identified and employees are equipped with the personal protective equipment should the need arise. A special team has been put in place to respond if an Ebola patient is identified. This team will not be caring for other hospital patients. Several hospital employees have volunteered to be a part of this group.
