ABSTRACT

Recommendations for Environmental Services, Biohazardous Waste Management, and Food and Linen Management for Persons Under Investigation and Confirmed Cases of Ebola Virus Disease: Standard Operating Procedures   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "While the probability of a person with Ebola virus disease (EVD) in British Columbia is low, preparedness to ensure health care workers can safely and effectively care for patients is essential. Preparedness relies on clear clinical processes, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) supply and deployment, and appropriate training for staff in the processes and equipment. [...] This document lists the standard operating procedures (SOPs) - steps, principles, responsibility and materials required - for environmental services staff and to follow when performing cleaning and waste removal during/following treatment of persons under investigation (PUI) and confirmed cases of EVD. It has been developed by environmental services and infection control experts and should be read in conjunction with the 'Recommendations for Environmental Services, Biohazardous Waste Management, and Food and Linen Management for Persons under Investigation and Confirmed Cases of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)' document."
