I don't they were supposed to get Ebola, but my husband has had Hazmat training for dealing with Biohazard situaitons in a level 2 laboratory setting.

He took one look at the gear they were using at KU Med during our area's scare, and said the head gear as very worrisome to him as it did not cover the full head and face. Everything else - the smock, glove and booties, he could deal with, but the head gear, he wouldn't go into a room with an ebola patient if he had a choice.

I think it's simply that the hospitals don't have the proper gear on hand.

Very informative.

Awkward, but informative.

I pray for anyone that falls under the category of 'health official' in the coming months.

Ebola or FearBola - don't care - it's still concerning, and has potential to escalate. Anyone that can't understand where this Could go is missing out on the site motto.

S&F - Good post.

Total number of non medical staff who have caught Ebola outside of Africa : ZERO
Total number of western (medical staff) with Ebola treated in the west who have died: ZERO

It is ONLY medical staff treating Ebola patients who have caught Ebola and even then very very few who more than likely did not follow the protective gear protocol to the letter.

Ebola has been stopped in African countries that reacted swiftly and contained it, new cases in last month : ZERO

It is still a problem in the original area of infection and will grow. What will not happen is this mass worldwide infection killing millions doom porn scenario.

I think some people on ATS WANT an epidemic to get their doom porn junkie fix !!!!!

The problem is the mutations that could occur and the overwhelming of neighboring areas by infections. This is a slow burn deal. It's easy to say it won't go very far. I thought it wouldn't go as far as it had, but it keeps burning and growing.

Right now, things are easily contained, yes, but this isn't over yet, either.

Let's wait to poopoo the worry until the epidemic burns itself out.

I find the article title misleading too. I thought it was going to be a bit more dramatic than what it is. I'm also unsure of what MSM is saying about the whole process as I don't have a tv so I thought I would share this in case they were saying it was easy or something.

the nurses were supposed to get Ebola just like the guy from Dallas was supposed to be released from the hospital. This is an orchestrated event. Ebola was weaponized and it has been unleashed onto the public.

When scrubbing -up and donning Sterile clothing, albeit for a simple laparotomy etc. - more if such is Ebola - One must forever remember 2 important words;
1. Internal
2. External

Those two must at all times be prevented / seriously Prevented from making contact. End of argument

You don't need millions dead for this to have been considered a success. Last I heard some 9,000+ people had died from Ebola, that's good enough.

Decreasing the population wasn't the only goal behind the weaponizing of Ebola & it's release into the public.

1) It also got U.S troops into Africa to secure the oil wells and keep them from the Chinese.
Obama authorizes National Guard to fight Ebola in W. Africa

2) People want to get vaccinated at a time when vaccinations are at a low and Bill Gates is being sued by the Supreme Court of India.

While fraud and corruption are revealed on almost a daily basis now in the vaccine industry, the U.S. mainstream media continues to largely ignore such stories. Outside the U.S., however, the vaccine empires are beginning to crumble, and English versions of the news in mainstream media outlets are available via the Internet.

India holds Bill Gates accountable for his vaccine crimes (and others)

There is still the potential that if an outbreak of Ebola were to hit the U.S during the right time, there won't be a Presidential Election this year.

Oh & if you are assuming I am a doom porn junkie, you couldn't be far from the truth. Just because you can't see the same connection doesn't mean that I am the one who is wrong. If you were blind, would you say the people who can see colours and details are wrong just because you can't seem them?

The giant pink mastadon in the room, is that training without experience is useless.

You wouldn't let a doctor do brain surgery on you after he read a book, watched a couple youTube videos and practiced on a few dogs and cats.

The emergency training is great but is it sufficient?

Remember these workers will be returning home and to their communities.




Yes I agree.there isn't suffient training or equipment. I'm jet saying I thought we knew this part of the problem.

Well MSM or CNN has been reporting this. The anonymous healthcare workers spoke out about it CNN. I haven't seen it get suger coated on the news. Not at all. So I thought it was common knowledge there was no protocol being used in Dallas. It's as if who ever wrote this piece hasn't watched MSM.

Anyways it was good at explaining the importance of doing it right

It's okay

I apologize too for not being clearer in my thoughts

That is one of the things I hate about computers-- sometimes the message is read differently than it was meant to be, where as is in person, you would have understood where I was coming from by my tone/facial expression

I know a lot more needs to be done preparing the medical staff in all hospitals and not just a 10-30 minute pep talk/walk-through



Much respect~

I hate that too about the internet. Sometimes you can't tell what the emotion is supposed to be behind the words.

There seriously needs to be a special sarcasm font.


On topic:
B.C nurses had said that they were completely unprepared and untrained for Ebola.

I just saw recently in my local paper (a city within B.C) that the staff at my hospital are trying to rain and prepare in case Ebola comes here.

I honestly believe with the case of Ebola, that they don't want people to be able to quarantine the epidemic.

If you want to read about something extremely stupid and ignorant, check out Loam's thread HazMat team empties Ebola doctor's apartment WITHOUT gloves, face masks or any protective gear

It show's these guys acting like they are taking trash out of the Doctor's apt.--the one that contracted Ebola
Jeans & muscle tops, smoking a cig like it's just another day

Sure, the germs may be long gone by now but why chance it?
Seriously messed up IMO
Unless the danger is gone, but who is to say?

Yes that is messed up. This is a picture of a guy cleaning up the vomit from the Ebola patient outside of his home.


I'm pretty sure that is standard protocol. Just use a pressure washer to spray the contagious vomit down into the water system

What I cannot understand is why EVERY hospital isn't training (properly) at least a handful of relevant medical personnel. Also the CDC should be making sure that every hospital has the equipment needed to handle this at least on a temporary basis. I realize that's a tall order but if recent events have proven anything, it's that this can happen anywhere. I mean, common sense would say that we should be doing this BEFORE the fact, not AFTER.

My only conclusion, is that you are in fact, correct. This was supposed to happen. It's a disturbing thought but, what else is left?

I don't like my theory and I really would like to be wrong but the events that keep happening, (CDC guy saying you won't catch it on a bus but if you have ebola, don't go on a bus cause you will give it to people) keep adding up in favor of my theory.

The U.S government has a history of doing similar things to it's people (Google: Tuskegee Experiment)

And the three thousand or so soldiers who are being taught one four hour class in groups of fifty? How well trained are they?


My guess is well trained, after all

The procedure for this is taught in FEMA courses, and you run drills with a buddy over and over again until you get it right.


I would also like to know how you know that each class has 50 people in it.



I doubt very well trained at all. From what I read from news articles, they had a 4 hour course. It's very easy to forget stuff from 4 hours of course and video work.

Soldiers get 4 hours Ebola Training

The training now is crap but when this guy got his training, it wasn't in the middle of a fear pandemic. Therefore, he had the proper training that is more than just 4hrs or 30mins.

I asked if the above pic represents the gear worn in US Hospitals, I was informed yes.



This is what should be provided to anyone who volunteers or is drafted to work with Ebola patients.

US Army investigated how Ebola behaves in cold weather. It has transmission characteristics similar to seasonal flu. This is what worries me. The training and gear is insufficient and is not enough if things truly get out of hand.

I ordered the above suit, should come in in 3 days,.. I'm going to pass out candy in it this Friday.
