    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.
    The red shirts make them look like the science team members in Star Trek. And we all know what happened to the guys in the red shirts on Star Trek...

    More cases potentially because 70 staff had access to Duncan.
    She CALLED the CDC (the "experts) several times asking if she could fly and they said yes. Several times.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn't 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn't officially fall into the group of "high risk" and was allowed to fly.

    This is what happens when left wing ideologues are put into positions of power-both in the white house and the CDC.

    It's complacency and apathy that will get us.

    Then, CDC issued a statement that she shouldn't have flown! I was watching the clip on the news with that CDC making a statement. I don't think they ever clearly explained that this nurse asked for their advise about flying. Not being clear on that seems to somehow shifts the blame on this nurse, at least in the press conference.

    It's becoming to look like a movie - clichéd incompetent government agencies and all!

    Then again, you do think that chemical filled shells subjected to 20+ years of hot desert exposure means they're good as when they rolled off the chemical plant.

    Reasonable discussion is beyond you.
    You always take a partisan stand on everything. I couod say the sun rises in the East and you would argue about it. As with every Liberal, whom doesn't have the ability to support his argument, you resort to personal attacks and insults. I'll remind you, you engaged me, not the other way around. You don't want to debate me? THEN DON'T.
