maybe nurses should go on strike until they get the proper training and equipment for dealing with ebola
Maybe the nurses in this country need to go on strike to force them to provide adequate isolation gear and training. That's what it seems like it is going to take. If you think that a nurse coming down with ebola will make them do anything, you are fooling yourself.
The CDC needs to pull its head out of its ass and admit that they are not ready and they really have no fucking idea it these patients can be safely cared for by anybody.
I heard a doctor "expert" say this morning, that people have been cared for without exposure siting the two doctors who walked out of the hospital after having ebola. Guess why those healthcare workers never came down with ebola? They are a part of a team of people who are specially trained at Emory hospital and University of Nebraska to work in biocontainment units where both of those doctors were sent. They PRACTICE the care, the isolation techniques. They actually know what they are doing. What a concept.
I have no doubt that there will be more cases of ebola in Texas. It this nurse was contaminated, others were also and they are now living in the community exposing others. I'm glad our joke of a CDC has that all under control.
