NYC Hospital Isolates Patient With Possible Ebola Symptoms

NYC Hospital Isolates Patient With Possible Ebola Symptoms
NEW YORK, NY -

From CBS News:

Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City says it is monitoring a patient who may be showing symptoms of Ebola.

The hospital issued a statement saying the man came into the emergency room early Monday morning with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms, after recently traveling to a West African country where Ebola has been reported.

The hospital says he has been placed into strict isolation while he undergoes tests to determine the cause of his illness.

"All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff," the hospital statement said. "We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and provide the best quality care to all of our patients."

Mount Sinai is a 1,171-bed teaching hospital located on Manhattan's Upper East Side. It is consistently ranked as one of the best hospitals in the nation, and was number 16 on this year's U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll.

The current Ebola outbreak, centered in the West African nations of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, has killed at least 887 people, according to the World Health Organization.
