Texas nurses claim outrageous conditions when caring for ebola patient according to National Nurses United

Once again thank you to National Nurses United, the only organization that is standing up for nurses in this ebola crisis. Nurses have been contacting them about the conditions they worked in while caring for Thomas Duncan.

Among the claims made by nurses at Texas Presbyterian:

- when they were concerned about their neck not being covered, they were told to put medical tape around their neck
-hazardous waste piled up in the corner because they had no plan on what to do with it.
- protocols kept changing during the care of the patient

With all this in mind, is it any wonder two healthcare workers have been infected?  No doubt we will hear of more.  I think its time for the CEO and the other administrators to go in and help clean up the patients.  Lets see how they do...

The news on TV now is that the nurse ( now infected with Ebola) traveled on a plane when she had a fever, so she might have given it to the other passengers in her bodily secretions. I think they tracked down the plane and are/have decontaminating it.
