There's been an ebola scare at Weston General Hospital - staff had to to isolate a patient after fears he'd contracted the deadly virus.Read the full story ›
A spokesperson from Weston General Hospital says nurses followed the correct procedure when dealing with the possibility of a case of Ebola.
A man was kept in isolation after returning from Lebanon exhibiting symptoms that could be associated with the disease.
There is no licensed treatment or vaccine for the disease, which has killed at least half of its victims this year. As a result isolating patients is critical to slowing the spread of the disease, as sick people can transmit it through their bodily fluids such as blood, sweat or urine.
A patient came in from abroad and because of some of the symptoms they were displaying, the accident and emergency department were naturally very cautious. They followed all the correct procedures and the proper triaging. The patient was found not to have Ebola.
A man was put into quarantine at a hospital in Somerset after concerns he was showing symptoms of Ebola.
The man, who had travelled from Lebanon, walked into the Accident and Emergency department at Weston General Hospital at the weekend.
Patients were kept waiting for assessments at the hospital in Weston-super-Mare, while the hour-long incident was resolved.
Tests carried out later confirmed he was not infected with Ebola.
