Leaders from the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology held a news briefing Oct. 24 to discuss the results and implications of the organization’s national survey, which asked APIC’s infection preventionist members at U.S. hospitals, “How prepared is your facility to receive a patient with the Ebola virus?”
Of the 1,039 U.S.-based respondents working in acute care hospitals, only about 6% reported the facility was well-prepared, while about 5% said it was not prepared. The remaining responses reported various levels of preparedness in between the two extremes, with the majority (40%) indicating they were somewhat prepared. Survey responses were received from hospitals that ranged in size from less than 100 to more than 400 beds.
