The hospital Carlos III de Madrid where the priests were treated is reported to have had extreme protective measures in place including two sets of overalls, gloves and goggles.
The nurse is in a stable condition and has been moved from the Alcorcon hospital to a specialised unit at the Carlos III hospital.
The other members of the medical team are being monitored.
(Reuters) - Four people, including the nurse who tested for Ebola on Monday, were hospitalized and being monitored over suspicion of potential contagion of the deadly disease, Spain's health authorities said on Tuesday. Officials for Madrid's health system told a press conference those hospitalized included the nurse's husband, a traveler from one affected country and another health worker. They also said the nurse, who did not leave Madrid during her vacations, was currently being treated with drip using antibodies from previous infected patients.
El Mundo reported that it was the nurse who asked to be tested for Ebola, having to insist repeatedly on being tested before it was done on Monday.
While staff at the Alcorcón hospital were waiting for the test results, the nurse remained in a bed in the emergency room, separated only by curtains from other patients, hospital staff told El Mundo.
Their version of events clashes with that of health authorities, who have said the patient was isolated from the first moment.
