Military to train more response teams

31 Oct, 2014

The Department of Defense is expecting a request from the Department of Health and Human Services for more rapid response personnel similar to the first military team, which completed training at Fort Sam Houston this week. The first team is made up of Army, Navy and Air Force personnel, including 20 critical care and inpatient nurses, five physicians and five infection control specialists who would instruct civilian health care workers in infectious disease protocols. At least one team member has experience treating Ebola patients.
