"we have Al Qaeda on the run"
Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.
So what do you have to say about the Nurses Association saying Hospitals aren't prepared like Friedman of the CDC says.....that Nurses across the country are saying they aren't prepared like the CDC says.
That's quite a contradiction by our medical people versus those of the Fed and its Bureaucracy. Wouldn't you say?
Mornin Lady P. Here check this out from the Left-leaning Mother Jones. The Nurses aren't going to let this CDC guy keep on lying about hospitals and medical people being ready.
Survey: Four Out of Five Nurses Have Gotten No Ebola Training At All.....
A new survey conducted by the National Nurses Union shows US hospitals may not be adequately prepared to handle Ebola patients, should the virus continue to spread. Out of the 2,200 nurses who responded to the union's questionnaire, 85 percent reported that their hospitals had not provided education on Ebola. 76 percent said their institution had no policy for how to admit and handle patients potentially infected with the virus. More than a third claimed their hospitals didn't have enough safety supplies, including eye protection and fluid resistant gowns. The survey results were announced on Sunday, just after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that a health worker in Texas had tested positive for the virus. The CDC's director, Thomas Frieden cited a "breach of protocol" as the likely reason. Now—as agency officials scramble to figure out just what that breach was—nurses are pushing back. On Monday, NNU nurses in red shirts rallied in Oakland, Calif. with signs reading, "Stop Blaming Nurses. Stop Ebola."
"We have been surveying nurses for almost two months about Ebola preparedness," Charles Idelson, an NNU spokesman, said Monday. "What these survey results clearly indicate is that hospitals are still not doing enough to be properly prepared to respond." The CDC has announced plans to deploy an Ebola response team "within hours" at any hospital where an Ebola patient is admitted. At a press conference, Frieden said the agency is responding to calls from hospitals that are underprepared to handle the crisis.
I wonder what this person has to say on the subject: Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) | HHS.gov

1. It's to be expected, frankly, that certain members of the medical care sector will become infected with any contagion that a patient carries, particularly in the early stages of that contagion being exposed to hospital environments. I saw it here in Toronto during the early stages of the SARS outbreak several years ago - the secondary infections were almost entirely contained within the medical care sector and many people died as a result but the contagion did not spread beyond the hospital affected.
2. A Canadian drug is now in trials in Maryland at this very moment with expectation of results early in December and likely available to patients of Ebola early in 2015. This drug is very promising and appears very effective against the contagion in trials so far, so I'm quite hopeful that this "outbreak" will be a mere footnote as 2015 progresses.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
