UTMC to film ebola preparedness video Oct. 15

In an effort to stay on the forefront of safety and emergency preparedness, The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) is filming a training video showcasing safety processes and procedures related to the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

The informational video will feature how to safely put on and remove Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Filming will take place on Wednesday, Oct.15 at 10 a.m. at the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center on UT’s Health Science Campus in room 10A, located on the second floor.

UTMC staff members have been following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations to prepare for EVD-related issues and have established a plan of action and training program for employees.

Preparations are dynamic with the understanding that the CDC will adjust response efforts, and training will continue until EVD is no longer a threat in the United States.

Dr. Kris Brickman, professor and chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine, along with other health and safety professionals will be available for interviews.
