Governor Christie Activates Statewide Ebola Preparedness Plan
Ebola Virus Disease Joint Response Team to Execute Plan and Coordinate in Real Time
Governor Christie signed Executive Order 164 creating the Ebola Virus Disease Joint Response Team (EVD-JRT) that will direct and coordinate on all matters pertaining to New Jersey’s public health response. Christie administration officials, state agencies and departments will work in a coordinated manner to ensure the health and safety of New Jersey residents is protected and to execute on decisions in an efficient and effective manner.

The EVD-JRT will also form an advisory panel of additional administration entities, as well as representatives from the medical community.


First Imported Case of Ebola Diagnosed in the United States (U.S.)
On September 30, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Health Department announced the first imported case of Ebola virus disease (EVD) diagnosed in the U.S. Information about this case, exposed in West Africa and diagnosed in Texas, is included in the CDC summary at the end of this memo. Although the identification of this travel-related case does not change the current guidelines and recommendations for EVD, the NJDOH is sending this LINCS message to remind public health and health care partners to remain aware of and familiar with EVD preparedness and response resources. Guidelines and recommendations can
be found on the NJDOH website at http://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/vhf/index.shtml and the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/index.html.

In addition, please note the following:

Health care providers should consider EVD in the differential diagnosis of febrile illness in persons with recent travel (within 21 days) to the affected areas in West Africa. As of August 30, the EVD-affected areas include the countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone; the cities of Lagos and Port Harcourt in Nigeria; and the city of Dakar in Senegal.

All persons with compatible symptoms and travel history to an EVD-affected area should be isolated until Ebola has been ruled out.

If EVD is suspected, health care providers must immediately contact the local health department where the patient resides or where the health care facility is located. Contact information for local health departments during business hours can be found at: www.localhealth.nj.gov. Contact information for local health departments after business hours or on weekends can be found at:
http://nj.gov/health/lh/documents/lhd_after_hours_emerg_contact_numbers.pdf

If local health department personnel are unavailable, healthcare providers should contact the NJDOH, Communicable Disease Service (CDS) at 609-826-5964, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. On weekends, evenings and holidays, the CDS can be reached at (609) 392-2020.


CDC: Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Hospitalized Patients with Known or Suspected Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever in U.S. Hospitals
Standard, contact, and droplet precautions are recommended for management of hospitalized patients with known or suspected Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF), also referred to as Ebola Viral Disease (EVD). Note that this guidance outlines only those measures that are specific for Ebola HF; additional infection control measures might be warranted if an Ebola HF patient has other conditions or illnesses for which other measures are indicated (e.g., tuberculosis, multi-drug resistant organisms, etc.).

New Jersey Hospital President, Wife Killed in Fire
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The president of a major southern New Jersey hospital and his wife were killed when a fire broke out in their home, authorities said Sunday.

However, the "circumstances surrounding the deaths" of 72-year-old John Sheridan and his 69-year-old wife, Joyce, remain under investigation, Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano said. Authorities also have not said what sparked the fire early Sunday at the couple's home in Montgomery Township.


EMS Shouldn’t Face Deadlines For PTSD Claims
When it comes to stress on the job, our fellow EMS providers to the north seem to have it dialed in. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a recognized risk of the profession, and it seems that Canadians are conscious of that. 


How Virtual Hospitals May Change EMS
With predictions that one in six doctor visits in the U.S. and Canada will be virtual in 2014, telemedicine has the potential to greatly influence how EMS operates.

Glenn Leland, chief strategy officer at ProTransport-1, a San Francisco-based ambulance transport company, said it also has the potential to offer a foundation for new models of care collaboration and continuity of care between EMS and other health-care providers, hospitals, urgent care centers, and primary care doctors.
