NARMC Bolsters Policy for Ebola Threat

thumb_a4430e4d8c723b0HARRISON, Ark.- North Arkansas Regional Medical prepares for potential Ebola threat.

According to a report, if a patient comes into the emergency room with a fever and has recently been out of the country, the new procedure requires medical professionals on the case to use full body protective gear.

Samples then would be taken from the infected patient and sent off for testing.

Typical symptoms of Ebola may appear up to three weeks after exposure and include a fever greater that 101.5 degrees, severe headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.

There have not been any cases reported in Arkansas or Missouri at this time.
