Ebola and Nursing

It is pretty clear that we are not prepared to deal with Ebola. The CDC is saying that the United States can handle it. Certainly the U.S. has technology that Liberia does not have. However, nurses know that technology is not the whole story.

Even health care workers are divided on what constitutes appropriate care:

Bottom line: We aren’t prepared to deal with this.

However, one interesting voice has commented on the situation. Perhaps Big Government is unnecessary here?

Interesting, and food for thought.
