HIGHLY INFECTIOUS DISEASE PLAN

If the patient is confirmed to have a highly infectious disease the patient will be transferred to Tier 2 or Tier 1 Facility depending upon availability and patient care needs O It could take up to five days for a patient to be confirmed to have highly infectious disease

In general the patient should be isolated for the duration of the illness or until the infectious stage of the illness has passed Category A These infections are spread by (1) hands (2) contact with non-sterile equipment faeces blood and body fluids and (3) bedpans/urinals

Visitors Visitors who have been in contact with the suspected infectious disease patient before and during hospitalization are a possible source of exposure for other patients visitors and personnel therefore visitor access to patient's room should be restricted
