Health Notices in the News

Up-to-date information about different types of infections or disease conditions that are making news headlines.

Ebola

Boston Children’s Hospital is prepared to respond in the event that we receive a patient infected with Ebola. Staff from across all areas of the hospital have ensured that protocols and precautions are in place to enable us to care for Ebola patients in a self-contained care environment designed to prevent the spread of infection, while meeting the patient’s unique needs. Boston Children’s has a duty to provide the safest, highest quality care to all children who need us, and we are fully prepared to deliver on that commitment safely, without unnecessary impact on our other patients, families or staff.


Enterovirus D68

Boston Children’s Hospital is taking the necessary steps to prepare in the event that an EV-D68 outbreak occurs in our region and a large number of patients seek care in our emergency department or are hospitalized with respiratory illness. To better prepare families, Boston Children’s Hospital has created an educational sheet that outlines what EV-D68 is and what families should do to avoid exposure.

The Experience Journal

Boston Children's Hospital's Experience Journal website is a collection of stories, pictures, and personal experiences from families about what it has been like to live with their children's heart disease. It represents the "collective wisdom" of these children and their parents as well as their health care providers.

Psychiatrist-in-Chief David DeMaso, MD, and his colleagues have designed the Experience Journal as a resource for patients and their families who are looking for insights from other people who have been in situations similar to their own.
