Patient Information regarding Ebola virus disease

Please read and review the below information regarding the Ebola Virus. The basic message for now from state and federal authorities is to be “aware, be informed, be calm, and be clean.”

1. Best defense for any viral infection, up to and including Ebola, is “hand washing.” 2. Ebola is at a very low risk in Oklahoma. 3. Concern is highest for Individuals that report that they are unwell and have visited an affected area in the past 21 days AND report a fever of >38°C (101.5°F) or fever within the past 24 hours; they will be advised not to come to the clinic based upon these responses. 4. If this occurs, we will transfer the phone call to the registered nurse for triage instructions. The primary care clinician is responsible for ensuring they are referred appropriately to the closest Emergency Department prepared to handle possible Ebola patients. 5. Procedures are in place to address the potential concern of a patient who presents to primary care at either of our clinics in person that will provide the maximum protection possible to the clinic, staff, and our patients.

Community Needs Assessment

The goal of the Community Needs Assessment (C.N.A.) is to plan, prioritize, and budget for the healthcare delivery for the community and assess those needs on a periodic basis to ensure services and resources are concentrated where they should be. This is identified by the community serviced by the healthcare organization as necessary for improving the health of all community members via the evaluation of new technology, services, or products available to the community.

Help us help our community by taking a quick survey, online or at our upcoming Health Awareness Fair.
