    Emory University Hospital CEO Explains Decision to Accept Ebola Patients

    According to Bob Bachman, CEO of Emory University Hospital, there was no question Emory would accept the patients for treatment.
    “These were medical missionaries who put themselves on the line. American, medical missionaries. We just felt a moral obligation to do the right thing,” Bachman said. “There was not a nanosecond of hesitation. When the call came in we just simply said ‘yes’ and ‘when.’”
    “Our chief medical officer and chief nursing officer said ‘OK, it’s time to prepare,’” Bachman said.
    Feedback has been “99.9% positive” since the patients arrived. ” He said the special containment unit set up for handling diseases like Ebola was built with CDC grant money and for years Emory’s staff trained and practiced for moments like this.
