Hospitals are required to do emergency mascal and other types of emergency training annually. Very good time now to get in front of the ebola training before being embarrassed in front of the world by Faux News.

It is a local incident and it is on our local news.

You mean we should block flight out of Texas? So far we got more infection out of Dallas than Africa.

Remind me how the infection arrived in Dallas in the first place? Right through the front door, with the perpetrator announcing his place of origin. "Hi, I'm from Liberia and I don't feel so good", accompanied by technicolor yawns from both ends.

And here's the governor of Takesass berating his own citizens. Someone oughta puke on his cowboy boots.

If I'm a healthcare worker right now, my resignation is on the administrator's desk.

I'm pissed, really pissed.

We have enough healthcare experts ....the new czar will serve more as a coordinator - need someone familiar with a variety of gov't agencies, not necessarily a doc or scientist.

That is what I am hoping and I think it would be wise to do this locally. But not saying that is what it was, if it was, just causes concern and distrust. The news tonight said that if anything happens locally which may be Ebola related or just checked for Ebola, local authorities are NOT allowed to disclose any information on it. What the heck kind of policy is that for the local community? It just keeps everyone wondering and in some cases, scared.

We have enough healthcare experts? I don't think so, not if the head of the CDC is so clueless.

I'm not confident, and certainly not confident with executive appointees, thus far in this administration. With the possible exception of James Comey at the FBI.

Anyway, I hope the Largo incident is much ado about nothing.

They must have been reading your mind.
