The first American Ebola patient, Dr. Kent Brantly, arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta where he will be treated in highly specialized units.
I think its great that we are taking care of our own. However, I raise a question/concern. As this disease is transferred via bodily fluids, how is the hospital prepared to handle the patient fluids while showering, brushing teeth, or even using the toilet? Their bodily fluids are being flushed down the drains of the bathroom Into he sewer pipes and most likely being fed back into a recycle facility. I don't know if these facilities are equipped to handle the extraction of the contaminated Eboli Fluids from these patients..... Please explain the pre-cautions that are being taken requiring this situation. Thank you John Orlowsky
They are flushing it directly into the regular sewer and they say it will be ok. I read that on CNN as a quote from the lead Emory doctor. He said our waste water system would kill it. Seems scary though.
