Should I worry about Ebola?
The media is keeping Ebola in the headlines and they're frightening America. In the unlikely event that Ebola would find its way to the Valley, rest assured that Monongahela Valley Hospital Hospital is well prepared, and is always ready for disasters of all kinds. Our staff is trained in emergency preparedness and we have a special task force on Ebola preparedness that meets daily. Our leadership has special pandemic training through FEMA.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assures us it is nothing to panic about in the United States.
- You cannot get Ebola through air, water or food in the U.S. You cannot get it by touching money or keyboards. It is not a highly contagious disease.
- Ebola can only be spread from contact with the blood or body fluids of a person or animal who is sick with or who has died from Ebola.
- America has the best doctors and public health infrastructure in the world and we are prepared to respond.
As an extra precaution at MVH, we'll be screening those who have traveled abroad in the last 21 days if they present with the symptoms: fever, headache, joint/muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite and abnormal bleeding. A patient meeting both these criteria would be isolated in a private room with a bathroom for further assessment and would be transported to a large medical facility for treatment.
The flu should be the main concern of everyone now. The flu kills many Americans each year. Everyone needs to get their flu shots and wash their hands frequently. To get your flu shot, visit Healthy Directions.
