A patient being cared for UC Davis Medical Center is being tested for Ebola, according to a UC Davis Health System spokesperson.
Dorsey Griffith said the individual is in good condition. The patient was transferred from Sacramento's Mercy General Hospital Thursday morning because the medical center is a priority hospital for evaluating and treating those who may have the virus, Griffith said.
UC Davis is one of just a few medical centers in the state equipped to handle an Ebola case. Several members of the staff volunteered to treat the patient.
"The nurses that volunteered feel comfortable and competent in providing this care for this patient," California's Nurses Association spokesperson Bonnie Castillo said.
