Fauci: It’s Wrong to Think Every Hospital Should Be Prepared for an Ebola Patient

‘I think this idea that every single hospital can take care of a seriously ill Ebola patient is just not true’

“I think this idea that every single hospital can take care of a seriously ill Ebola patient right now is just not true. So what we’re going to be doing with the CDC and the state health authorities and the hospitals themselves, -- we know we have four hospitals that are there now, including my own hospital, but we need to pre-train people so that if we need to surge up we can. But I think we don’t want to get people to think that any hospital, community hospital is totally equipped to care for the patient. They must be able to identify and isolate and then from there get them to a place where you have pre-trained people who know how to do it.”
