People must prepare now, because if/when this hits the police/fire/ems/RN's will stay home with their families. I guarantee you we are not being told the truth of this situation at all.
I read the alert about Ebola being in a hospital in the Carolina's but is
being kept off the radar. I can confirm first hand that these events are
being kept off the radar.
A local hospital in Davenport, IA on 16 OCT 2014 denied an ambulance
transport of a patient for the stated reason that the west campus of the
hospital was on lock down for Ebola. They stated this over the radio and
the medics relayed that down the line.
After discovering that a patient whose daughter had just returned from
Sirerra Leone, treating Ebola patients, was exhibiting symptoms the
hospital was locked down. PAPER MASKS were distributed to everyone, as if
this is even remotely adequate. Eventually the lock down was lifted and
they gave the all clear, stating her symptoms were of some other illness.
Now, I found this to be a distinct possibility at the time but after
telling my girlfriend, about the event she
called the hospital's public relations office. They completely denied it
ever took place at all. This despite getting confirmation from an officer
stuck inside the ER at the time and other nurses there as well.
Additionally, our shift commander sent a message to all in-car computers
stating the hospital had an "event" and has declared it to be safe and
"low-risk" but despite that he forbade anyone going there for the remainder
of the day. Another officer asks "what event?" the reply was "Ebola." I
have a photo of this for proof.
In speaking with my co-workers and union representatives I've learned that
we have no idea what to do should that have actually been a confirmed case,
and it may have been, we just aren't told. The hospital has no plan either
and all upper command entities were in full on panic mode.
People must prepare now, because if/when this hits the police/fire/ems/RN's
will stay home with their families. I guarantee you we are not being told
the truth of this situation at all.
