What utter crap Lansing, and Snyder’s talking-heads are peddling to these nurses.
Nurses in Michigan and nationwide charged Wednesday they are not adequately prepared to care for Ebola patients, lacking both the training and proper equipment to deal with the deadly disease.
The Michigan Nurses Association called on Gov. Rick Snyder for greater leadership, even as state agencies and the Michigan State Police stepped up efforts to prepare for a possible outbreak.
Snyder spokesman Dave Murray said the administration is pushing the group for details about the complaints because its “statements are very general and broad.”
The state Department of Community Health said Wednesday it continues to follow the situation in Texas.
“The governor was 100 percent correct when on Oct. 9 he said all hospitals were equipped to do isolation work per the Centers for Disease Control requirements at that time,” department spokeswoman Jennifer Smith said.
CDC? Oh, that’s rich. The fact is The State (government) is lying to everyone.
So let’s look at that infrastructure.
There are, in fact, a total of four medical isolation units in the entire United States, as we noted yesterday, that are capable of handling infected Ebola patients near endlessly.
Where are they, and what can they handle?
Emory University’s Serious Communicable Disease Unit is in Atlanta, GA. That’s where Brantly and Writebol were treated. It has three beds.
St. Patrick Hospital’s ICU Isolation Unit is in Missoula MT. It has three beds.
The National Institute of Health’s Special Clinical Studies Unit is in Bethesda MD. It has seven beds.
And the biggest, the Nebraska Medical Center’s Biocontainment Unit is in Omaha NE. It has ten beds.
3+3+7+10=23 beds, coast to coast.
So, where did they just transport Dallas Nurse #1? If you guessed Maryland – Bingo!
More… this Ebola stuff sounds like a whole bag of fun, yes?
