The Medical University Hospital is testing a patient for Ebola this morning, spokeswoman Heather Woolwine confirmed.
She did not know if the patient had recently traveled from one of three West African countries where the deadly virus has killed thousands of people this year.
The patient is being tested as a precautionary measure, according to spokeswoman Sarah King. King said the patient is very low risk and it's "not probable" that tests will come back positive.


At a meeting that Gov. Nikki Haley held on Ebola two weeks ago, Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Templeton said the state health department could run preliminary tests on a patient and receive results within several hours, but that it could take longer for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to confirm if the test is positive.
MUSC is one of three hospitals in South Carolina that agreed to accept Ebola patients should a case emerge in South Carolina. There has been no evidence of the virus in this state to date.
Woolwine emphasized that everything at the hospital is under control.
"We deal with people with all kinds of infectious diseases all the time," she said.
Sarah King, a spokeswoman for the hospital, released the following statement during a press conference this morning:
"MUSC Medical Center was contacted by DHEC late yesterday evening regarding a patient requiring Ebola medical screening. MUSC enacted it's planned response. An MUSC medical team was dispatched to the patient's home. The patient was transported to MUSC Medical Center in an isolation pod. The patient was immediately placed in the specialized isolation unit and is currently under the care of the MUSC Ebola specialized medical team of physicians, nurses and other medical personnel. The patient remains in isolation and the initial assessment indicates the patient is unlikely to have Ebola. However, MUSC and DHEC will continue to monitor the patient closely in the isolation unit. MUSC continues to collaborate with DHEC and other community partners to ensure the patient's privacy and appropriate medical care."
King could not answer other questions about the case. She did not know where the patient lived. DHEC plans to release a statement about the situation later in the day.
This article will be updated as more details become available.

Georgetown Hospital System had a similar situation about 2 weeks ago. Email went out saying they'd ruled ebola out after tests....

Read the email and LOL'ed basically. If the tests had been positive, then it would have already spread to a few dozen people who hadn't been adequately protected. Probably the same situation at MUSC.

CDC protocol that hospitals cite as "being followed to the fullest extent" on this thing is a joke....
