The Ebola virus is without a doubt one of the most worrisome viruses on the planet. Not only is it incurable, but the possibility of the virus showing up in the United States has people around the country, including residents of Rhode Island, concerned about related subjects, including the delayed diagnosis of the condition. After all, the long-term potential effects of a delayed diagnosis for an Ebola sufferer by an inadequately trained medical professional could conceivably put many individuals at risk.
The Ebola virus is spread by contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person by a non-infected person. In a hospital environment, such as an emergency room, medical workers like doctors, nurses and interns are constantly moving between patients. This places every individual at risk if the Ebola virus is not immediately diagnosed by personnel so that the sufferer can be appropriately quarantined.
