A Liberian Ebola patient was left in an open area of a Dallas emergency room for hours, and the nurses treating him worked for days without proper protective gear and faced constantly changing protocols, according to a statement released late Tuesday by the largest U.S. nurses' union.
Nurses were forced to use medical tape to secure openings in their flimsy garments, worried that their necks and heads were exposed as they cared for a patient with explosive diarrhea and projectile vomiting
- Nurses treating Duncan were also caring for other patients in the hospital
- Preparation for Ebola at the hospital amounted to little more than an optional seminar for staff
- In the face of constantly shifting guidelines, nurses were allowed to follow whichever ones they chose
CDC officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Typical of for-profit hospital administrators: routinely overwork and underpay the nursing staff, squeeze every savings possible to return a profit, leave yourself vulnerable to training and resource gaps in a crisis.
The CDC led by "Dr." Thomas Frauden is still in full-blown calm-mongering, downplaying the outbreak and making ridiculous claims that the broken, for-profit US healthcare system is somehow "the best in the world" and "ready for any crisis."
Don' behead the CDC?
Like I said previously Ebola can be cured as follows : 10 ppm Nano Collodial Silver with 3ppm H202 (Peroxide), Intraveinous Vitamin C High Dose, and Delta 9 THC treatment (No Smoking) and a cocktail of herbal teas such as turmeric bitter melon and ginger.

Or go ahead and do Ebolas job for it.
Of course he knows that wasn't true. He said to to stop panic in the streets, because he was tasked to.
Who cares what they think? What is occurring in the hospital is whats important. Not what officials say about ti.
When in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout. Suppose that would be a better press conference…
If they had told the truth and enacted policies to keep people from hot zones out of the country until the epidemic ran itself out, we wouldn't be in the mess we are in.
