    Heya Fenton. The Dallas Nurses are......this just in from 19 min ago. They even left Duncan in an Open Emergency room for hours.

    Dallas nurses cite sloppy conditions in Ebola care.....

    A Liberian Ebola patient was left in an open area of a Dallas emergency room for hours, and nurses treating him worked without proper protective gear and faced constantly changing protocols, according to a statement released by the nation's largest nurses' union. The CDC has said some breach of protocol probably sickened Pham, but National Nurses United contends the protocols were either non-existent or changed constantly after Duncan arrived in the emergency room by ambulance on Sept. 28.

    Deborah Burger of National Nurses United, who convened a conference call with reporters to relay what she said were concerns of nurses at the hospital, said they were forced to use medical tape to secure openings in their flimsy garments and worried that their necks and heads were exposed as they cared for Duncan. RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of Nurses United, said the statement came from "several" and "a few" nurses, but she refused repeated inquiries to state how many. She said the organization had vetted the claims, and that the nurses cited were in a position to know what had occurred at the hospital. She did not specify whether they were among the nurses caring for Duncan.

    The nurses allege that his lab samples were allowed to travel through the hospital's pneumatic tubes, possibly risking contaminating of the specimen-delivery system. They also said that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up to the ceiling. The nurses' statement said they had to "interact with Mr. Duncan with whatever protective equipment was available," even as he produced "a lot of contagious fluids." Duncan's medical records underscore that concern. They also say nurses treating Duncan were also caring for other patients in the hospital and that, in the face of constantly shifting guidelines, they were allowed to follow whichever ones they chose. When Ebola was suspected but unconfirmed, a doctor wrote that use of disposable shoe covers should also be considered. At that point, by all protocols, shoe covers should have been mandatory to prevent anyone from tracking contagious body fluids around the hospital.....snip~

    It's also possible that the two healthcare workers were contaminated when Duncan first walked into the hospital on Thursday, September 25th, as they began showing symptoms well within the 2 to 21 days incubation period since Duncan's first visit.

    There are only 2 out of 76+ healthcare workers who treated Duncan who've come down with Ebola so far.

    If the hospital procedures were insufficient, it is reasonable to think that many more people who treated Duncan once he was hospitalized would have shown symptoms by now.

    This points more to contracting the virus from Duncan's initial visit, when only a few workers might have been both on duty and serving duty in the ER at the time.

    None of the likely 150+ cumulative number of workers in all the other hospitals treating every one of the previous Ebola patients flown there in complete protection have come down with Ebola.

    So why have 2 out of the 76+ come down with Ebola in the Texas hospital?

    Because even if there were no CDC Ebola protocols in place in any U.S. hospitals, the protocols used were sufficient ..

    .. And the 2 out of 76+ workers in the Dallas hospital contracted Ebola from Duncan when he first walked in on his own on Thursday, September 25th, when they were present in the ER at some time and no one suspected Ebola so no one was wearing protective gear .. and it's still within the 2 to 21 day incubation period from 9/25/14.

    If the Dallas hospital protective gear and procedures for use are inadequate, than a lot more than 2 out of 76+ would be showing symptoms by now.

    It is thus likely the 2 workers with Ebola contracted the disease on 9/25/14, not on 9/28/14 or thereafter.

    Maybe that Freidman.....should do like he said and make sure they send them to where they can be isolated and treated.

    I would think this could be construed as having a Catastrophic Coverage, huh? Money money money.....money!

    Well, right now they are screening on point of origin. The problem is that there is a 13% chance that a screened passenger would clear the screening and still be infectious.

    5 of them....that's what I have on it.


    Five US airports to screen for Ebola.....


    Five US airports will begin screening the temperatures of passengers arriving from West Africa as the United States ramps up its response to a deadly Ebola outbreak, officials said Wednesday. "The vast majority of people" coming from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone -- the three countries hit hardest by the epidemic -- will be screened, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

    The airports implementing the measures are John F. Kennedy International in New York, Washington Dulles International, Chicago O'Hare International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International and Newark Liberty International in New Jersey. Together, the five hubs are the destination for 94 percent of people traveling to the United States from the three most affected countries......snip~

    These two people would not have Ebola if we didn't issue a visitors visa to an Ebola infected person from West Africa.........also, I wouldn't be picking up the $500,000 in medical bills for him.
