And CNN is reporting here that this is exactly what the Maine nurse is REJECTING in NEGOTIATIONS.

"Some risk."

This "nurse" Kaci Hickox needs to have complaints filed against her for utter disregard for the public health of citizens of the USA. There are 2 states that you can send your complaints to, Texas and Maine.


The State of Maine Nurse Practice Act states that disciplinary action may be taken against a licensee who engages in "unprofessional conduct." According to the law, "a licensee is considered to have engaged in unprofessional conduct if the licensee violates a standard of professional behavior that has been established in the practice for which the license is issued." In the case of Ms. Hickox, the standard of professional behavior would be to follow the state's mandate of quarantine according to their guidelines and at their designated facility in order to "do no harm" to the general public. The standard of professional behavior is to exercise personal responsibility to insist that public health safety come before oneself and follow the World Health Organization (WHO) 42 day incubation period for Ebola with a quarantine. Instead, Ms. Hickox complained about the treatment of health care workers in a news outlet almost demanding preferential treatment for health care workers. Read more at freedomoutpost.com...[/ex ]


The Maine Nurse Practice Act also allows disciplinary action for "engaging in false, misleading or deceptive advertising." Ms. Hickox failed to disclose her association with the CDC, instead promoting first and foremost her work with Doctors Without Borders. By engaging in this "deception," one could assume Ms. Hickox was a willing participant in a plan to undermine the guidelines for screening, monitoring and quarantining of individuals, mostly health care workers, returning from caring for Ebola stricken individuals in West Africa. Also, Ms. Hickox has basically hired an attorney to file a lawsuit for violation of civil rights concerning a quarantine issued to ensure public health safety, since three health care professionals have refused to exercise personal responsibility based on current medical knowledge regarding Ebola and endangered the general public with infection. Ms. Hickox intentionally hid her association and employment with the CDC in order to "tow the company line" against sound medical intervention. Basically, she mislead the public by failing to fully disclose her close association and employment with the CDC, which would account for her ranting and "special treatment." This "nurse" needs to have multiple complaints filed against her with the State of Maine Board of Nursing for violation of the State Nurse Practice Act should it be found she is licensed to practice in that state. Read more at freedomoutpost.com...[/ex ]


Anyone may file a complaint against a nurse for violation of the Nurse Practice Act. Normally, the complaints are filed by colleagues, other nurses or physicians. However, with the actions of Ms. Hickox out in the open, the general public has every reason to question this nurses' ability to follow any nurse practice act which indicates that the professional registered nurse has a duty to public health safety.

If anyone would like to lodge a complaint against Ms. Hickox for unprofessional conduct and violations of standard professional conduct, the address for both Texas and Maine Nursing Boards are listed below.

She sure seems awfully sure of herself. Was she ever really in the "hot zone"?

So many pic's out there,... but not one in a hazmat suit (that I have seen anyway).

Yeah I've been watching that since they announced her name, and mentioned it to marg earlier.

It looks like a lot of her "work" was with Asian kids. There has been only one that I've seen with what may have been an African child and that showed up very recently, comparitively speaking and that was this one. Looks a bit odd to me.

She is not sick, she was never infected, but occurs she is a hero, she is showing to all the people that comes from ebola ridden countries that they need to exercise the rights and no to let any state regulations take away their freedoms, occurs until the unlucky ones to be infected starts to show symptoms.

I applaud her for a job well done, CDC should be very proud of her.

what a champion.

Clearly it shows that she was NOT in an infected area.

Her records shows that she spend one month in Sierra De Leon, but details of her work are not posted, she claims working with ebola patients but under Doctors without borders, I guess looks like CDC assign ESI agents whenever they need them.

Question: Would a CDC person sign up with DWB? Don't they kinda do the same thing in a way? Was she CDC working there with DWB?

And, again, why are they emphasizing the DWB angle so hard since she's CDC?

Interesting to note that DWB is very upset that volunteerism to W. Africa is down because of all this. They have been all along but now their claims are that it's totally affecting them hard. So fast? Really?

It's been what? A week?

U.S. quarantines 'chilling' Ebola fight in West Africa: MSF


"There is rising anxiety and confusion among MSF staff members in the field over what they may face when they return home upon completion of their assignments in West Africa," Sophie Delaunay, executive director of Doctors Without Borders, said in a statement emailed to Reuters. Doctors Without Borders is also known by its French name, Médecins Sans Frontières, or MSF.

Some MSF workers are delaying their return home after their assignments and staying in Europe for 21 days, Ebola's maximum incubation period, "in order to avoid facing rising stigmatization at home and possible quarantine," Delaunay said in her statement.

"Some people are being discouraged by their families from returning to the field," she said.


And again, with people this altruistic and this dedicated and this brave to face this disease to begin with, why would a 21-day rotation in quarantine be so very daunting?

They could take that time to write papers and articles on the treatments, work remote via Skype advising, and still be useful.

This is very interesting,


According to the Daily Caller, Hickox was listed as an “active” EIS officer as recently as July 18, 2014, per the CDC’s own documents.

Well now isn't this interesting.

White House 'does not support' Kaci Hickox's flouting of Ebola quarantine

The White House said on Thursday that it did not support the decision by a nurse in Maine to flout the voluntary quarantine imposed upon her by state authorities concerned about her exposure to Ebola.

A spokesman for Barack Obama said that it was up to states to set their own public health rules, although he believed they should be guided by science.


Guided by science instead of say, voodoo? (Oh I get it...fear, hysteria, which I've seen relatively little of, or maybe the unknown parts of science that experts can't even agree on, right?)

ETA: This might be a sign of them finally realizing that the Constitution is on the states's side in this?

Well of course they say this *NOW* !!!!

They must keep the cover intact by all means necessary.

The other day they were criticizing the States.



This is becoming clear.

Yeah, my partner looked at the pic and said the same. Probably mark their boots to know who uses which ones. Just found it odd. We used to just initial stuff when I worked in the OR, not make scribbly marks. Still think it's weird but I guess it's just a way to ID her boots.

Pesky thing...that Constitution.


ETA: From earlier in this or my other thread...I'm so confused:

The Constitution gives states the authority to protect the public and public health and the power to pass laws to this end, which (ahem) they have. These laws happen to include quarantine when needed. These lawyers and/or the president/white hours might try to overrid states' actions for their own reasons, by, say, throwing a hissy fit or proclaiming it a security threat, or encouraging a whiny nurse, but that probably won't fly in the courts. I'd be shocked (and more than a little angry) if it did.

They tried, lucidity, but the PR ESI agent to challenge the states started to look too stupid and hell we can not have anymore angry voters on Nov. 4, so now is time to do an about face on that one, ditch the Nurse Ms. Hickox and find something else to try.

Mr. Ebola Czar is been busy lately, don't you think? specially when he is known for be a "fixer"

Amen to that.

Total mishandling. And I'm still saying Christie and Cuomo and the other governors made the RIGHT call and those calls had less to do with politics than what the federal government did.

I wish Maine would hurry up and challenge this is court and call her bluff, but they'll probably wind up chickening out.

Nah, she will just fade in the background to never be heard off again, because she will be wisped away to another assignment.

Meanwhile we will be too busy with the results of the mid term elections and bickering about the losers and winners.

Or will be complaining hysterically about the next infected walking death in some big city in any US state.

You know how bad the time span of most people are.

Forced isolation and pull her license permanently.

This is one irresponsible person. I wouldn't want her treating me for anything.


I'm going to have to agree with what you are saying in this, but then again the camera crew is practically harassing her by following her less then 1 foot behind. I understand that what she did is wrong and how its spread by touch but people following that close to someone who is contagious is just out right idiotic.
