Remote Robotic Treatment
Although it is difficult to justify cost wise, it may be worth looking into remote robotic treatment of ebola patients to protect healthcare workers. With today's technologies we can build a robotic apparatus to perform just about any task. A single robotic system could be mounted on a fixed track that is accessible to a large number of patients. It could be in a similar configuration to an auto manufacturing assembly line set up.
These robotic systems are extremely precise, and are capable of being controlled remotely from an isolated area. They could perform tasks such as placing I.V.s, taking blood samples, changing patient locations, or even providing food and water. In the event that a machine physically cannot perform a task, health care workers with proper PPE would be available to help. This would definetely reduce the amount contact between healthcare workers and patients.
