The Ebola outbreak is getting lots of press. News agencies and citizen groups are screaming for action, but disease and medical professionals are urging caution. The truth is, Ebola is extremely rare in the US, and it’s relatively hard to catch. That said, there have been confirmed Ebola cases, and hospitals need to be aware of how to identify and properly treat emergency room patients with suspected infections.
