Still, Ebola is different. “I think, for any hospital today, Ebola represents one step higher than anything else, if we had to do it,” says Ross, who directs infection control for Hartford Healthcare’s five hospitals in Connecticut.

On a tour of Hartford Hospital, Ross explains how his Ebola control plan would affect various parts of the facility — from the emergency room, to the intensive care unit, to the floors of rooms where patients stay.
