DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas hospital where a man diagnosed with Ebola died and two nurses were infected by the virus says patients are returning and revenue is back to what it was before the crisis.
In financial statements Friday, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said that in Dec. 1-15 emergency room visits fell by 4 percent and the daily number of patients was down 4 percent. For the month of October, a period that started shortly after Thomas Eric Duncan was admitted, the hospital saw a 49 percent drop in ER visits and a 22 percent drop in its number of patients.
The hospital also saw a 25 percent drop in revenue in October.
Duncan died on Oct. 8. After he was admitted, two nurses were diagnosed with the infection but recovered.
