Memorial Hospital patient no longer in isolation for Ebola

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A spokeswoman with Memorial Hospital says it’s “been ruled out” that a patient that came into the Emergency Room Wednesday has Ebola.

Ilyssa Drumm says the patient came in overnight, saying they had Ebola symptoms, and had contact with someone outside the United States. Drumm says the hospital put the patient in isolation as a precaution, and activated federal Ebola protocol.

The patient was screened and removed from isolation.

Memorial Hospital statement:

Any possibilities of Ebola have been ruled out in this case and the patient is no longer in isolation. This was an opportunity for us to test our system and our staff and physicians handled this as they were trained to do. No one is at risk.
