Dear Conference Attendee,
You likely already know that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital is treating a patient with the first travel-associated case of Ebola in the United States. Texas Health Dallas is a Magnet® hospital and a co-host of next week’s ANCC National Magnet Conference.
The vast and predictable amount of media attention surrounding this Ebola diagnosis in particular has upset and frightened many people. We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to educate the public about all infectious diseases and our hospitals’ capacity to deal with these issues. As you know, Ebola is not spread through casual contact and a person must have symptoms to spread Ebola to others, therefore the risk of transmission is extremely low.*
The American Nurses Association (ANA) and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) support the health care team caring for the Ebola patient, and hope for full recovery of the patient as the staff works to ensure he receives the best possible treatment.
