    Ebola: Five ways the CDC got it wrong

    Ebola: Five ways the CDC got it wrong - CNN.com

    A nurse contracts Ebola. An urgent care center in Boston shuts down when a sick man recently returned from Liberia walks in. Health care workers complain they haven't been properly trained to protect themselves against the deadly virus.

    Public health experts are asking whether the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is partly to blame.

    Here are five things they say the CDC is getting wrong.

    1. The CDC is telling possible Ebola patients to "call a doctor."

    2. The CDC director says any hospital can care for Ebola patients.

    3. The CDC didn't encourage the "buddy system" for doctors and nurses.

    4. CDC didn't encourage doctors to develop Ebola treatment guidelines.

    5. The CDC put too much trust in protective gear.
    The article is a very informative read.

    Typical mismanagement, poor forethought, lack of common sense, and pure governmental arrogance.

    1) So, people who think they have ebola shouldn't contact a doctor?

    2) There are hospitals unable to treat infectious illnesses? Not very good at what they do...

    3) What? "Buddy system?"

    4) Guidelines exist for this sort of thing. Are we suggesting every doctor should make up their own procedures?

    5) It's done a pretty good job so far. Is your goal perfection? Because if your goal is perfection, I have a unicorn to sell you.
