On Thursday, Dr. Stephen Parodi, an infectious disease specialist who oversees operations at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Rafael and other Kaiser hospitals in Northern California, said Kaiser would begin distributing educational materials on Ebola to its facilities throughout Northern California by the end of the week.
Parodi said that on Monday, Kaiser would issue a video to staff on how to correctly use personal protective equipment.
Despite calls for hazardous-materials suits by some health care providers, the CDC is recommending that health care providers wear only gloves, waterproof gowns, face masks, goggles and possibly shoe covers. Experts caution that more unwieldy gear could increase the risk of infection unless those using it are adequately trained.
Parodi said, "The terminology around what personal protection equipment is and what constitutes a Hazmat suit is a little bit confusing."
He said Kaiser will be supplying its front-line staff with an Ebola kit that contains a Tyvek suit that is impermeable to fluids, boots that extend up to the calf, a mask, a face shield and a hood.
"We're trying to protect the entire body to exposure to blood and body fluids," Parodi said.
Parodi said increased travel, both international and domestic, is one of the likely reasons for the proliferation of new scourges and revitalized, re-emergence of old ones, such as tuberculosis.
"The world is much smaller than it used to be," Parodi said.

Trained staff are using protective equipment, coordinated with infectious disease specialists, to provide care for the patient, said Dr. Stephen M. Parodi, director of hospital operations at Kaiser Permanente Northern California, in a statement.

It, fortunately, is not causing a lot of hospital admissions," said Steve Parodi, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center chief of infectious disease in Vallejo.
The local Kaiser call center has seen a 20 percent increase in members seeking advice or appointments about the flu compared to prior
years, Parodi said.
Numerous people have also sought help through the Kaiser Emergency Room services, he added.
Complicating matters is an unrelated virus -- health officials are calling naroviruses -- which afflicts people with similar, though slightly different symptoms, Parodi said.
The flu causes high fever, muscle aches, weakness and loss of appetite, plus, in some cases, diarrhea.
Naroviruses primarily cause vomiting and diarrhea, though low-grade fevers, muscle aches, fatigue and headaches can also be present.
Parodi believes the influenza has peaked in southern Solano County and fewer people are calling and seeking attention.

"We are seeing an increase in the number of contacts regarding the flu in the emergency department," said Dr. Stephen Parodi with Kaiser Permanente.
"Now is the time to do it," Parodi urged. "It's still worthwhile to get vaccinated."
The vaccination takes two weeks to kick in, he said, and flu season usually lasts through April.

The top infection control challenge, many say, is Clostridium difficile, which is now more common than the combined rate of central line bloodstream infections, catheter associated bloodstream infections and ventilator associated pneumonia, according to Stephen Parodi of Kaiser Permanente.
