It's shameful that you did not even contact an Infection Prevention and Control Practitioner to address some of what this woman claims. It needn't be from the Texas hospital, any Practitioner would do. She comes across as an uneducated, angry nurse who is not in it for the patient and resents that she may have to treat an infectious patient. It's very unfortunate that two nurses were exposed but it is not clear how this happened. Current recommendations remain Droplet/Contact precautions with increased personal protective equipment (PPE) for certain circumstances. Infection Prevention and Control places patients on various types of precautions and staff do not always follow the precautions. Any one of us can tell you that staff cut corners on a regular basis but when something like SARS, H1N1 and now Ebola presents itself and those same staff are required to wear PPE we have to re-educate them. This is something that should be engrained in every healthcare worker and not something we have to 'enforce'. One has to consider how Ebola is transmitted in order to understand this issue. Where is the professional responsibility of the Nurse here. All of this is counter productive and we should be looking for solutions and not laying blame on whomever is handy. Get off you soapbox and be productive.....why don't you go take an Infection Control Course Breana!!!
