Nurses union: Ebola hospital, health care workers, not prepared to deal with the virus

A nurses union said that their interviews with non-union nurses at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas reveal a startling series of errors and lies that show the hospital was woefully unprepared to treat Ebola patient Thomas Duncan.

All the confident pronouncements about how prepared the hospital was, how careful they were, are apparently bogus.

The Hill:

A national nursing union is blasting the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas for what it described as a lack of preparation for Ebola that put healthcare workers at risk.

The criticism took place on a conference call late Tuesday night, before news early Wednesday that a second medical professional contracted Ebola while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to enter a U.S. hospital with Ebola.

There are now two healthcare workers with Ebola tied to Duncan’s case. The first, 26-year-old nurse Nina Pham, was isolated over the weekend. Duncan died last week.  Read the entire story.
