UCLA doctors, nurses and other Ebola response team members held an Ebola preparedness exercise at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Oct. 17. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health also participated.
“This was a vital exercise and allowed our health care team the chance to practice and receive worthwhile feedback from the Department of Public Health,” said Dr. Zachary Rubin, associate clinical professor of infectious diseases and medical director of clinical epidemiology and infection prevention on the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. “Preparing for patients stricken with Ebola has involved a major period of time and thought.
