High-isolation preparedness for very contagious and potential severely ill patients
Ten and seven years ago respectively, the two high-isolation units in Denmark became prepared to receive highly con­tagious and potential severely ill patients. The units are located in the departments of infectious diseases in Hvid­ovre Hospital and Aarhus University Hospital. Both depart­ments had little experience until the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, 2013-2015. Altogether, 15 possible Ebola patients were examined in the two departments, but the diagnosis was ruled out for all of them. Besides, a few possible candidates for Middle East respiratory syndrome patients were exami­ned. Always being prepared in a busy clinical everyday en­vi­r­­onment is a challenge, and it takes regular training and exercises involving all personnel.
