This message was posted on the wall of FOX 31’s Facebook page. The reader is the spouse of a Denver ER nurse and he has some concerns with the way the Ebola situation is being handled in Denver hospitals.
Read his post below:
Significant other of a level 1 ER nurse in Denver here. Denver Hospitals are NOT equipped to handle Ebola patients. You reported saying they may face the very real possibility of a patient with the virus walking through our hospital doors, and that all the medical personnel are well prepared with all the proper gear. They are not, I assure you. I will not stand by while some hospitals outfit their staff with multiple layered hazmat suits, and our Denver nurses get an open back smock. Please. Stand up with me and fight for our healthcare workers to be outfitted with the same gear as everyone else. This is your health too! Investigate! Ask questions! Find out WHY the hospital heads are lying by saying they are all prepared. Everyone who MAY have to come into contact with a possible ebola patient MUST have the SAME gear. These two nurses in Dallas may have gotten the virus BECAUSE they did not have the proper gear, not because they didn’t follow protocol. Please, again, help me protect my love and all of our Denver area healthcare workers! Everyone should be getting the same gear! Different gear means different protocol means errors means contraction. This is not right. I beg of you. Help.
