Ebola Algorithm for the ED: Rational & Simple

With all of the current media attention on Ebola Virus Disease, confusion and over-reaction is understandable. The CDC provides the appropriate algorithm for the patient arriving to the ED:

Does patient have a fever (subjective or > 101.5°F) OR compatible EVD symptoms (headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or unexplained bleeding or bruising)?

If YES:

Has the patient traveled to an Ebola-affected area* in the 21 days** before illness onset?

*Currently Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Note that Nigeria reports localized transmission.

** The incubation period is typically 8-10 days, but can range from 2-21 days.

If YES:

1. Isolate patient in single room with a private bathroom and with the door to hallway closed.
2. Implement standard, contact, and droplet precautions (gown, facemask, eye protection, and gloves).
3 IMMEDIATELY report to Infection control personnel and the local health department.
