nurse Nina Pham who had ebola sues her hospital employer

Nina Pham, the first nurse to contract ebola in Texas has filed a lawsuit against the hospital she worked for claiming that they were not prepared to deal with ebola. They didn't have the proper equipment and did not train the nurses on how to care for an ebola patient.

She also states that they violated her privacy by announcing her name to the public and filming her in her room without her permission.  She says they tried to use her to save their reputation.

I am sure they will settle with her out of court, just like they settled with the family of Thomas Duncan. They don't want all of this dragged through court. Their reputation is already down the toilet.

Neither Pham or Amber Vinson have returned to work after going through this. Pham states she has had physical and emotional problems.  I can only imagine.

She implies the hospital where she works was more interested in its reputation than it was in her.

This isn't a big surprise. Nowadays a hospitals reputation is everything.  There is so much competition between hospitals. If a hospital has bad publicity, they worry it will affect their bottom line: MONEY. That is the purpose of hospitals in this day in age: to make money. To specialize in things that make money: cardiology,  neurology, orthopedics, different types of surgery. Doctors in specialties make out like bandits and administrators make a few million a year plus bonuses.  All in "non -profit" hospitals.

When are nurses going to understand that the only people that will take care of us, ensure our safety is US. We certainly can't depend on administrators to take care of us. They are going to try and get by as cheaply as possible. I have big news for you: They don't care about you.  You are replaceable.  With a newer nurse that is cheaper.

The only thing that protects us are organizations that bring us together to demand our rights and yes, that is usually in the form of a union.

Right on, Madness. Another issue that needs to be dealt with is: ADMIN, PHYSICIANS, LOTS OF PEOPLE, HAVE ALL BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE. You nurses need to become "empowered," the way women in manufacturing and business did 'way back in the '70s. Stop being good little girls and start slugging back! Quit being so nice and accommodating. The bean-counters who've taken over healthcare administration have 30+ years of experience in how to be powerful, assertive, uncooperative, or downright nasty, as the situation requires. They don't hesitate to say no to unreasonable demands. They will manipulate the mamas and church women and good little servile "helpers" just as much as they can get away with, until YOU finally learn how to say "Fvck off" instead of "Yes, I will do it." SERIOUSLY. I went from manufacturing into 1 year of diploma R.N. school, and I could not BELIEVE! what an antiquated workplace culture it was.

You are all trained professionals, and your job description does not say not good little servile housewives or Catholic mamas or other people who agree to be treated as inferiors. Stop being such nice cooperative little pushovers, and start acting like college-grad professionals, for your own good. Admin can't fire you all. Tell them "No," whenever "No" is the appropriate answer. Tell them if they don't like that answer, they can gown up and do the patient care themselves.
