U.S. hospitals are preparing themselves for Ebola, according to a Fox News Health article by Nicole Kwan. Due to the first Ebola patient making his way into the U.S., hospitals don’t want to take any chances. It is comforting news to know that hospitals are more prepared for Ebola than the general public is aware of. The preparation requires that each facility have isolation rooms in case there is a potentially infectious patient. Although Ebola is deadly, health experts say that it is less contagious than the common cold.
