Her heroics aren't over until her window for infection closes, as a nurse she should get that and try to respect the conerns of the community at large. I would say the states are playing up the risk for political purposes and she is playing it down for the same reason.

Sadly, all most people want is common sense measures, not the pathetic rhetoric and window dressing we are getting.

They can if they are mentally disturbed. They may not want to hurt others, but may do it anyway. The government has forsaken them, and most Americans feel (rightly) upset about that. The veteran deserves respect and dignity.

My point is, this woman wants respect and dignity too. She wasn't given that at all. She has a right to be upset. It makes me angry to see people putting her down because she complained about how she was treated. She has done good in the world, and she deserved to be treated better. If she's being a whiner, than so are all the veterans who came back from Afghanistan and Iraq.


this nurse is mentally disturbed if she can come back from witnessing HORRIBLE SUFFERING

And can still complain about 7 hours of sitting still????



I simply dont agree. If she really wanted to help? Shed finish what she started IN A NICE WAY, not like this, screaming and kicking because she cant end her heroics in style and has to wait in quarantine.

And another inevitable. A politician backing down.....

Nurse can go home and self monitor



A nurse who recently returned from West Africa and was quarantined for the past three days in a tent behind a New Jersey hospital despite having no symptoms associated with Ebola will be allowed to return to her home in Maine, where it will be left to local health officials to determine how she will monitor her health to ensure she is not infected with the virus.

“She will remain subject to New Jersey’s mandatory quarantine order while in New Jersey,” the state’s health department said in a statement. “Health officials in Maine have been notified of her arrangements and will make a determination under their own laws on her treatment when she arrives.”


Anyone want to say they didn't see this one coming?

Personally I'd put her up somewhere else. She should be thanking them for NOT bringing Ebola into her home. Look at Nurse Pham, Nurse Vinson, Dr. Craig, and the Duncan family. Look at all the possessions they lost and will now have to replace because of "possible" Ebola. Now by going home, IF, big if, she does contract Ebola, all her possessions will have to be replaced too, and let's face it, on a nurse's salary, that is not easy to do.

Well, you are right, in that it is her responsibility to monitor her own health, i.e., take her temperature multiple times a day, etc. And if she has an elevated temperature, or if she starts exhibiting any of the other signs of ebola, she should immediately isolate herself and contact the proper authorities. That is the existing protocol. Have you seen her say anything to imply that she wouldn't follow the existing protocol?

We've been dealing with this since mid-September with Thomas Duncan, and no one, I repeat, no one in America has gotten the disease from the early stages of his illness. Not family members or plane passengers or airport visitors or airport personnel or ambulance drivers or ambulance passengers or apartment residents. Even the beady-eyed judge in Texas didn't catch it. And so far, no one has gotten the illness from either of the nurses. You would think that of the hundreds of people who were marginally exposed to the Amber nurse during her trip to Cleveland, at least one person would have gotten it by now, since it most commonly shows up in 8-10 days after exposure. But nope, nada, no one.

I would almost think that some here (not you) are disappointed that not more people are sick. They have to have something to be incensed about, and since the disease isn't spreading like wildfire, as they predicted -- they need something else to be incensed about. Enter the nurse... voila.

Nurse held at Newark, NJ, hospital under Ebola quarantine discharged at 1:20 pm ET, officials say; being transported to home in Maine - @WSJNY


Who ever is transporting her better be sure to have something more than granola bars and bottled water for the long trip home.

That's not even close to being the same thing. The soldiers returning home are respectful to others ... this woman is NOT. The woman is being treated with dignity and respect ... she's just not being allowed to run all over the place when she could have a deadly disease. It's called common sense.

I fail to see where this woman hasn't been respectful - I mean she worked in dangerous conditions to help people who weren't even her own countrymen. As far as I know, she didn't shoot any of them or anything.

So no one tells her where she'll be going until they dump her in an unheated tent with no shower (or any kind of civilized bathroom) or any way of finding out what's going on in the outside world (like a tv). For hours they keep her in the dark at the airport, and only give her a granola bar when she tells them she is hungry. I don't exactly call that dignity or respect. I call that -- North Korea, or maybe the Middle East.

Not to sound rude...but...what makes you think she wasn't TOLD to say and act this way. You know, maybe by Obama and gang. The same people forcing our Governors who think we SHOULD quarantine possible ebola infected people for 21 days...to just let them walk the streets. Our government is strong-arming our elected Governors to act AGAINST THEIR BETTER JUDGEMENT! What the Hell is that?

Well, interestingly enough, I found this in a blog.... she has a linkedin account that was scrubbed and she is a supporter of you know who, and employed by CDC. She has an agenda.

www.thegatewaypundit.com...

Oh by the way, she is griping about being forced into quarantine, but our troops aren't even allowed to come home, they are being quarantined in Italy.
What makes her so special? Ties to the WH and the CDC maybe?

I came in here with guns a blazin' & then I read the whole o.p. I couldn't agree more. She us a health worker and wer're dealing with a pandemic...she should know nothing is being too careful. Look at the other ass hat doctor that was our riding subways and at a BOWLING alley just prior to checking himself into a hospital.
That's great these people are helping out in Africa, but bring something so deadly here that currently...really hasn't even been here, I have no compassion to their woes.

Kayaluv, now she is being allowed to go home, to Maine where she lives, she is being asked to abide by Maine Health guidelines, set up using the CDC guidelines, now she is saying she refuses to abide by that as well. She now has state troopers outside her door to ensure she doesn't leave. Maine has now gone to court to get a court order to order her to stay in her home for 21 days. She wanted a more confortable area for her to stay, she now has one. Now she has another reason to whine and moan. Nurses and doctors I know are stunned by this woman's attitude. Outright stunned. Some want to vote her off the island, so to speak. Now I wouldn't go that far, but she is beginning to push the limit. She's is, of course, now threatening to sue Maine. Is there anyone she ISN'T going to sue? Just curious.

Ooh a rant.
Ahem, this woman is a freaking idiot.
Oh boo hoo I saved Africa why do I have to stay in my house for 21 days this is so unfair.I mean the arrogance of this woman, i know she did good in Africa but what part of prevention doesn't fit into her thick skull ?!
I mean treating her like a criminal?
Was she pepper sprayed, tazered and strip surched?
Seriously, she just wants attention. I bet the only reason someone hasn't tried to murder her yet is because her blood is a potential biohazard. I mean someone slap some sense into her. She probably has the whole neighborhood panicking. I bet she only went to Africa for bragging rights instead of kindness otherwise she wouldn't be so quick to put herself in front of others.
Even at my worst I always believed that when your on a path to self destruction you should do your best to make no one follow you and take no one with you.
Selfish brat.
