FEMA readies Ebola training for 500 doctors and nurses


The course will also require participants to don and doff different levels of PPE under supervision of instructors and conduct several practical exercises in full PPE, including the following: a simulated patient and/or body transport, cleaning and disinfecting a simulated patient care area, a simulated waste disposal exercise, a simulated patient care exercise (including drawing blood from a simulated patient and packaging a simulated specimen for transport and testing), responding to a breach in PPE in a simulated high-risk area of an ETU. Please note that this training course contains simulated patient-care activities only; no actual patients with Ebola infections will be involved in the course.
