Furious Nurse Unions may picket over inadequate Ebola training

Posted: October 16, 2014 in Uncategorized

The country’s largest nursing union is considering the possibility of picketing hospitals if they do not offer more extensive training on how to treat Ebola patient.

Nurses United executive director RoseAnn DeMoro said in a conference call Wednesday that her group may take “pretty dramatic action for nurses across the country” that could “escalate into possible pickets at hospitals.”

“We have heard consistently across the country that there are no protocols in place,” she said.

On the same call, nurses lamented the lack of training they have so far received, arguing that few hospitals have adequately prepared them to treat Ebola patients without a risk of becoming infected.
