Los Angeles Daily News

California’s senators called on hospitals across the Golden State to take every measure possible to ensure that staff are fully trained and prepared to screen, diagnose and treat any potential Ebola patients.

In a co-written letter directed to the California Hospital Association and the California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems, U.S. Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein urged the organizations to ensure preparedness.

“The purpose of this letter is to make sure that California hospitals are 100 percent up to date to keep Californians safe from the threat of this deadly disease,” the senators wrote in a letter released Friday.
