The CDC Has Nothing Under Control: Protective gear initially left nurses' necks exposed at Texas hospital treating Ebola patient

There is no new method of Ebola transfer, as Rand Paul has suggested. It is becoming clear that US hospitals are ill equipped to deal with Ebola cases and that the protocols, or lack of them, led to the infection of a nurse with Ebola, at a Texas hospital, after she treated,Thomas Duncan who died from the disease .

National Nurses United Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro, charges that nurses necks were exposed, at the hospital, even as they wore protective gear.

Further, "There was no mandate for nurses to attend training," Burger said, though they did receive an e-mail about a hospital seminar on Ebola.

"This was treated like hundreds of other seminars that were routinely offered to staff," she said.

Bottom line: The Center for Disease control is a typical government agency. Big on propaganda as to what it does "to protect the health of Americans." But, it is nothing but an ineffective poser. The sooner people stop trusting these organizations the better. People, firms and, yes, hospitals need to take things into their own hands and not expect proper guidance from government organizations.

  1. Something to consider: Ebola according to the CDC must be handlers on a BSL 4 lab. This includes a one-piece positive pressure personnel suits ventilated by a life support system. However, all the CDC says healthcare worker should use when treating Ebola infected patients is one pair of gloves, a face mask, face shield and gown. No covering of head, feet or neck and no breathing apparatus. Big discrepancy between laboratory handling and handling an infected patient that presents more potential to infect someone.
