James White, M.D.
INTEGRIS Chief Medical Officer
Dr. White provides an update on INTEGRIS' Ebola preparedness
We know the Ebola crisis, which began in West Africa and is now on U.S. soil, is top of mind for many. With three confirmed cases in Dallas, including Thomas Eric Duncan, the patient who passed away, and now two health care workers, the threat hits uncomfortably close to home. The proximity is unnerving and has many Oklahomans understandably on edge.
Patient and employee safety is a priority at INTEGRIS and we want to ensure and reassure the public, as well as our staff, that we are well-trained and well-prepared to respond to any situation.
INTEGRIS disaster preparedness professionals and infectious disease specialists have been working on a response plan for months, in the event a patient with Ebola-like symptoms were to present at one of our hospitals or facilities.
We continually monitor the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) website and news conferences for up-to-the-minute news alerts, protocol updates and guidelines.
