Good Morning Camden High School Family. This is Dan Matthews, principal
of Camden High School. I would like to take a moment to inform you about an
incident which occurred last night at the end of the Camden-Dreher Football
game. As many of you are already aware, as the players were shaking hands at
the end of the game, a altercation broke out between some of the Dreher and Camden players. The coaching staffs of both schools
and law enforcement intervened as quickly as they could to minimize the
incident. This is not our way. It is unacceptable on every level and will be
dealt with swiftly and justly. We do have a video of the incident and it will
be shared with the SC High School League and has already been shared with law
enforcement. Any person who took a swing with a fist or a helmet with be
punished according to SCHSL rules, KCSD policy, and if need be, by law
enforcement. We are cooperating with them in every way possible and they with
us. As I said before, this is not the way CHS operates. It is our responsibility
to bring pride and honor to our community. As rumors are of course rampant, I
would ask that you reserve judgment until all the facts are clear. One fact
however is clear, we will not tolerate this behavior. On Monday morning, we
will begin again striving to be the best High School in SC by our work, our
attitudes, and our actions. Work starts Monday. Thank you for your support and
for all you do to help our children be successful. Have a great rest of the

The current focus on the death of a patient with Ebola in Dallas and the subsequent infection of two nurses at the same hospital, as well as the global nature of travel today, has led some to wonder how community hospitals might deal with possible Ebola patients. As it does with any actual or potential public health emergency, KershawHealth has created policies and procedures for Ebola preparedness. In addition, the hospital is working closely with SC DHEC and the South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) to amend its plan as necessary, and is continually updating and educating staff members.

“We take infection prevention and control, and public health, very seriously,” says Infection Prevention and Control Director Paula Guild, MSN, RN, CIC “and we have been thinking about and working on our preparedness since early August. We have an Ebola plan in place, and our staff has been trained on the proper procedures, and is being updated regularly. In addition, we would not hesitate to contact DHEC if we had any concerns about a patient.”

Public health officials have emphasized that the risk of contracting Ebola in the US is extremely low. The disease is spread by direct contact with bodily fluids of an infected person who is showing symptoms of the disease (fever, vomiting, diarrhea).  There is very little risk of transmission from those who have been exposed to the virus but are not yet showing symptoms.

KershawHealth’s has already begun implementing key portions of its Ebola plan, including:

  • Posting signs at all patient intake areas to alert patients to disclose travel to West Africa (particularly Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone), and indicating potential Ebola symptoms such as fever, severe vomiting or diarrhea, intense weakness or muscle aches, etc.
  • Providing inservice education on Ebola for personnel in patient intake positions, including the Emergency Department, EMS, nursing, registration, and others
  • Ensuring adequate inventory of PPE (personal protective equipment) and training appropriate personnel on the proper use of such equipment
  • Identifying potential isolation rooms and appropriate isolation and infection prevention procedures to be used if necessary
  • Implementing daily briefings of appropriate staff members to keep them apprised of the evolving situation.

Other portions of the plan will be implemented if and when they become necessary.

“Our nurses and clinical staff are very aware of Ebola symptoms, and are being diligent about identifying patients with appropriate symptoms or a history of travel to affected areas,” says Chief Nursing Officer Stacy Collier, MSN, RN. “As always, our concern for patients and visitors is foremost, and we are exhibiting the utmost professionalism.”

Thinking carefully about the current situation, constantly evaluating how tasks are performed, and always employing the most effective infection prevention techniques are key to keeping both the public and KershawHealth staff members safe.

Naturally, KershawHealth is monitoring CDC and SC DHEC reports daily for any new updates related to Ebola preparedness. As public health officials often stress, training and education are the best way to maintain an adequate level of readiness for any emergency.
