Ebola is Unlikely to Show Up in Northern Manitoba, But Plans Have Been Made, Just in Case

In a letter to staff of the Northern Health Region, CEO Helga Bryant indicated that the first order of business is to have the person transferred immediately to Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg.   For example, if a person contacted a northern hospital by phone, they would likely be transported directly from their home to the closest airport for LifeFlight transfer.   Health Sciences Centre is the only hospital in Manitoba designated as a testing and treatment site for Ebola.   

 

Plans have been developed at many levels throughout the region for EMS, clinical sites, Public Health, Infection Control, Emergency Departments and Nursing stations.
