This month: The 2014 NFDA Nashville International Convention & Expo
Latest Information: CDC’s Post-mortem Ebola Guidelines
Posted: October 1, 2014
As you may have heard, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday, October 30 that a patient being treated at a Dallas, Texas, hospital was the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. While all of the patients who have contracted Ebola and been brought to the U.S. for treatment have fully recovered, it's important to be informed and prepared should a death occur. NFDA has resources on its website (guidelines from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on the post-mortem care of Ebola victims.
