New Jersey Ready for Ebola Outbreak with Mobile Isolation Unit

New Jersey Ready for Ebola Outbreak with Mobile Isolation Unit

Three hospitals in New Jersey have been designated as prepared to treat a patient diagnosed with Ebola.

One of the hospitals is so ready that they’re taking their services to the road.

NorthJersey.com reports that Hackensack University Medical Center wants to use its mobile satellite emergency department to treat Ebola cases. The mobile unit is made up of two 43-foot trailers, and has seven beds, digital X-ray and sterilizing equipment, oxygen generators, and a portable field lab.

FiOS1 News reports that the unit is on hospital property, about a half-mile from the main building. Hackensack’s proposed plan still needs approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hackensack acquired the mobile unit through more than $10 million in funding from the government. “This will show the maximum capabilities but flexibility of the system,” said Dr. Joseph Feldman, according to NorthJersey.com. “Anything you can do in an intensive care unit you can do here. This is more advanced than some of the community hospitals.”
