Out of the 76 healthcare workers who crossed paths with deceased Ebola victim Thomas Duncan at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, two have come down with the disease. If the disease would have been properly identified the first time Duncan went to the hospital, more precautions could have been made. If the healthcare workers were properly trained from the start to ask the right questions and take proper safety precautions, then the two nurses may have never contacted the Ebola virus from Duncan.

Sadly, a new National Nurses United survey shows that 85 percent of US hospitals are unprepared and provide virtually no Ebola treatment training to nurses. This lack of preparation across the board make the medical system and individual hospitals a danger zone for Ebola spread. Without the proper protection equipment and waste-disposal procedures, hospitals are the last place anyone may want to be in a time of pandemic.

Thousands of nurses nationwide are concerned that their hospital is unprepared
