Alameda County Ebola Guidance

All Alameda County health care providers should be prepared to identify and temporarily isolate a patient presenting with signs or symptoms compatible with Ebola Virus Disease AND a history of recent exposure. In addition, they should inform the ACPHD Acute Communicable Disease Unit immediately by phone if they have a suspect case to ensure the patient meets the criteria for a suspect case and if so, allow for appropriate infection control precautions and safe transport to an Ebola designated assessment/treatment center.

All hospitals should at a minimum maintain the ability to screen, identify, and isolate suspect Ebola patients; sustain enough Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for 12-24 hours of care; and prepare patient for transfer with coordination and guidance from Alameda County public health and EMS. This preparation is how the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Ebola Hospital Preparedness framework defines "frontline" health care facilities.
In Alameda County, all hospitals are considered "frontline" except:

  • Kaiser Oakland Medical Center - designated Ebola "treatment center"
  • UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland designated “assessment” hospital for pediatric patients.
