Hospital questions ER entrants

20 Oct, 2014

Baylor Medical Center in Frisco, Tx., restricts its ER with a locked sliding glass door and a sign telling people to knock. KLIF-AM radio announcer Dave Williams says he and another person were questioned before being allowed to enter:

Have either of you been in contact with anyone who has had Ebola?’ … ‘Have either of you been to West Africa recently?’

Another sign posted on the door tells those who have traveled internationally recently and who show a variety of symptoms, not to enter patient-care areas. The hospital says the system is designed to protect staff, and that it will not turn people away from the ER.
