Ebola2014
A message from BAM about Ebola

Date Added: October 25th, 2014

Ebola

The outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa and recent cases here in the United States are serious. The authorities here in the US are monitoring the situation closely and most public health experts continue to believe it's very unlikely that Ebola will become an epidemic in the U.S. Even so, we want to be sure that we are prepared in the rare event the virus does spread beyond the recent cases in Texas.

What is BAM doing to prepare?

We're dedicated to protecting our patients and entire staff from any communicable disease but in particular there are things you can do to help.

What to do if you have symptoms or think you've been exposed

Public health experts have confirmed that Ebola can only be spread through direct contact with the body fluids of someone sick with Ebola, or objects contaminated with the virus (like needles).

This means:

  • Ebola is NOT spread through casual contact.
  • Ebola can only be spread when people who have the virus are actively showing symptoms.

If you recently traveled to Sierra Leone, Guinea, or Liberia and have a fever or are otherwise ill, or you've been in contact with someone who was diagnosed with Ebola, call our appointment and advice line for additional instructions at 1-866-454-8855.

Please call us before coming to the office. This will help our medical staff direct you to the right location and quickly provide you with the best care possible. However, if you reasonably believe you're experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.

What are the symptoms?

The most important early symptom of Ebola in someone who's been exposed to the virus is a fever. Patients may also have: headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite, or abnormal bleeding. Symptoms may appear anytime from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the Ebola virus, though 8 to 10 days is most common.

For more information

For the latest information, including details about prevention and symptoms, please visit the CDC website.

Another important health reminder: Flu Shot

At this time, it's very unlikely you'll need to worry about protecting yourself from Ebola here in the U.S. However, there is a virus that, each year, takes the lives of tens of thousands of Americans, and sickens millions more - the flu. And you can help stop it. In fact, getting a flu shot is the single most important thing you can do to protect your health and the health of others this season, and we encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

We do have vaccines available in the clinic, so please ask us at your next appointment.
