Description:This image was created by Nahid Bhadelia, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Section of Infectious Diseases, and the Associate Hospital Epidemiologist at Boston Medical Center. It was captured while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) 2014 Domestic Ebola ETU Training Course for healthcare workers was underway. The program had been designed in order to educate participants who would be deployed as members of the West African Ebola Response team, as to the proper protocols to be followed when treating Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF) patients. Here you can see two participants who’d paired up in order to dress in their required personal protective equipment (PPE). By applying the buddy system, each healthcare worker can act as the secondary check for the other, thereby, assuring that the each other’s PPE had been properly secured,

The 3-day courses took place at the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency, Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama. Training participants included physicians, nurses and other providers who were to be deployed to countries affected by the Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF) epidemic, thereby, providing direct patient care. "The primary purpose of the courses was to ensure that clinicians intending to provide medical care to patients with Ebola have sufficient knowledge of the disease, and its transmission routes in order to work safely and efficiently in a well-designed Ebola treatment unit (ETU)."
