“How do we discipline employees that refuse to work due to the Ebola virus?”

“What patient information is protected during an outbreak?”

“How should we communicate with our employees about Ebola?”

“Has OSHA issued new guidelines on Ebola for healthcare providers?”

 

These are just a few of the questions we are hearing from our clients. In response, Waller has launched this comprehensive online resource to help healthcare leaders and other organizations navigate the diverse issues pertaining to the arrival of the Ebola virus in the United States.

Waller’s Ebola legal resource website is an important source of information for healthcare executives, board members, risk managers, human resources professionals and others who are asking what Ebola means, from a legal perspective, for their organization, employees and patients. Preparation in this situation is important, whether an Ebola patient walks through your doors or if you are simply dealing with the climate it has created.

The website launches with a compilation of media articles, links to resources, such as the CDC, and original articles from Waller attorneys. We will update the website with new content and information as Ebola’s impact continues to be analyzed and studied by Waller attorneys.
