EBOLA UPDATE



According to the CDC, early recognition is critical for infection control, and health care providers should be alert to evaluate any patient suspected of having Ebola virus disease (EVD).1 As the leading distributor of both medical-surgical products and pharmaceuticals in the U.S., McKesson Medical-Surgical is committed to providing hospitals, clinics, physicians and nurses needed supplies and medications to help them safely and effectively care for their patients and protect themselves.

Helpful Ebola Information

Information is one of the most important weapons in the fight against the spread of disease and infection. We have posted updated guidelines and recommendations from the CDC on managing EVD on the UPrevent web site (see What’s New in IP at right). Below also are links to the latest CDC information on Ebola.
