Care for patients with Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and other highly infectious diseases is demanding and requires an unwavering commitment to teamwork and stringent infection control measures. Patients with EVD are severely ill and require specialized critical care interventions. The care of these patients is resource intensive from a clinical, technical, emotional, and financial perspective. Successful treatment of these patients requires facilities to be fully prepared for the intense resource demand associated with their admission and continued cares.
