After initial evaluation, the physician engages with our infection control preventionist and the state health department to discuss the differential diagnosis and patient disposition (that is, inpatient admission, the ED, or home) and determines whether maintenance of infection control precautions and Ebola diagnostic testing are indicated. For the exceptional circumstance of a PUI meeting high-risk exposure criteria (3), transfer to the SCDU would be considered. Additional staff (such as the ED physician, hospitalist, and SCDU director) are engaged as appropriate. After clinic discharge, the patient is transported by the same procedure used for arrival (if necessary). Contaminated nondisposable equipment remains in the examination room until it is disinfected with the room itself, and biohazardous waste is removed and disposed of according to guidelines (9).
