The South Carolina Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is changing its name to the Public Health Reserve Corps (PHRC). The mission of the PHRC is to provide an opportunity for medical, behavioral health and non-medical volunteers to assist communities during disasters and non-emergency public health activities.
Please see PHRC 2016 September Newsletter for more information.
CDC has clarified its guidance regarding personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare personnel caring for suspected and confirmed Ebola patients in U.S. healthcare facilities. Based on feedback from healthcare facilities that have implemented the current guidance (originally posted October 2014), the updated guidance clarifies the use of fluid-resistant and impermeable gowns and coveralls. Specifications are provided in the guidance to assist facilities in selecting and ordering the recommended garments. In addition to clarifying the specifications of gowns and coveralls recommended, the PPE guidance for confirmed Ebola patients and clinically stable persons under investigation for Ebola has been updated with additional explanation.
The updated PPE guidance for confirmed Ebola patients is available on the CDC Website at: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/healthcare-us/ppe/guidance.html.
The updated PPE guidance for clinically stable persons under investigation for Ebola is available on the CDC Website at: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/healthcare-us/ppe/guidance-clinically-stable-puis.html.
The frequently asked questions page can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/healthcare-us/ppe/faq.html.
