The Ebola crisis taught us many lessons. One of the lessons was to effectively direct and monitor the major access points to our health care facilities.
After the Ebola crisis, the national healthcare system therefore identified a need to screen everyone entering the hospital. The Ministry of Health sent out a nationwide mandate to create screening points at the major entrance total fencing of each healthcare facility.
Fencing directs everyone to access the hospital through its main entrance. Through this entrance, all who enter the hospital (patients, staff, visitors) are screened. There is a medical worker who is trained to screen for specific symptoms. If there are questions about the person’s health status during screening-perhaps the person has an extremely high fever or some other symptom that mirrors Ebola or other virulent diseases-the person is sent to an isolation area where they can be further tested.
