There seems to be some kind of disconnect between what we see when hazmat teams are cleaning the apartment of the nurse with ebola and what we, as healthcare workers, are e being told to wear when caring for a patient.
So I see video on the net of people in full hazmat gear including respirator starting at the sidewalk and spraying the walkway with some kind of cleaning solution. Stuff is brought out of the apartments and put in large yellow barrels. WTF?
Then we are being told, oh, you just have to wear a gown, goggles, gloves and foot covers. Do they not get the contradiction here? I mean this woman is no longer even there in the apartment and they are taking all of these precautions. Then we are told we don't need all those precautions.
Do they not think that this contradictory picture scares healthcare workers? I mean seriously, they need to address this directly. Tell me why we don't have to wear all what the cleanup crew wears?
