Hodge, J.G., Gostin, L.O., Hanfling, D., and Hick, J.L. (2015). Law, Medicine, and Public Health Preparedness: The Case of Ebola. Public Health Reports. 130:2-4.
The authors share guidance on topics at the intersection of law, medicine, and preparedness for managing Ebola, including the willingness among health workers and entities to handle known or suspect cases; use of novel treatments and experimental drugs; isolation, quarantine, and other social-distancing measures in medical settings; and prospective liabilities of health workers or entities for medical errors or omissions in the handling or treatment of Ebola cases.
