Management of High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) Toolbox for Frontline Health Care Facilities [presentation] [open powerpoint - 0B]
From the Executive Summary: "We live in a world where people travel the globe and pathogens evolve. These forces make health care facilities throughout the state vulnerable to risks posed by High Consequence Infectious Diseases (HCID) infections, such as Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, and others that are easily transmissible, highly fatal, and not preventable through routine vaccines. Delayed detection and isolation of HCIDs may result in spread to others in health care facilities and the community. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Minnesota Chapter of the Association for Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC MN), and the Health Care Coalitions of Minnesota worked collaboratively to develop this toolbox to help frontline facilities prepare for presentation of a person with a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID)."
