You can be sure that is exactly what will happen, but you watch... the hospital and its insurers are the ones who will bear the brunt of the settlements. The government can afford to keep the healthcare workers in court until the attorneys fees eat up every penny, or the claimants die of old age. No one in the government is ever held accountable.
Hear a really horrifying item on FoxNews, night before last. Seems that Presby Hospital had an electronic diagnostic device onsite, which they use to diagnose West Nile, and a variety of flu viruses. It is also capable of diagnosing ebola in about 2 hours, BUT it has to have the proper software. Since the device is approved for clinical use instead of "research only", Presbyterian neither acquire the software package or use it to diagnose ebola! AGGGHHH! The idiocy continues. This has to be some sort of nitwit bureaucratic regulation via Obamacare? or the designation has tax ramifications. Either way, this is OUTRAGEOUS! So far, have heard nothing further, but seems to me that with a stroke of a pen, hospitals with this device could be enabled to USE whatever software is available to better serve the American public! Anyone listening?!?!?! Hello! Hello!
Good Grief! What an idiot! Of course, she clearly reflects the incompetence and nitwittery which permeates this administration! Feel soooo much better now that President Obama has waltzed out and appointed another Czar! Another Democrat operative attorney, with zero background in medicine or healthcare, but lots with spin while employed by Al Gore and Joe Biden. I'd have preferred Frieden, only telling the TRUTH! I live in Dallas! I'm not in a panic, but am mad as heck at the spinners and liars. Duncan should have never been allowed into the country in the first place, and those poor nurses followed "protocol". It was the Administration and CDC who screwed up the handling of that single case. Of course, we have a local county judge and Dallas Mayor, who have made fools of themselves throughout this fiasco. Thank goodness all of the ebola patients have been removed from Presby, so they can get back to treating people in our community. Heard that the US has only 4 hospitals which are capable of handling ebola patients, and of those only 12 to 14 beds are available!!!!!! So we've funding the CDC to the tune of $6.6 BILLION DOLLARS, and there are 14 beds??!?!?! Who to they think they are kidding?!?!?! It is OUTRAGEOUS!
another worthless "community organizer".

Irresponsible 'Education'

Well put! Not only are we decades into the propaganda teaching, and turning out "graduates" who cannot name the three branches of government, but we are further dividing this country by destroying public education. Parents, who can, are opting for private schools or home schooling. Look at the societal implications.... Public education is the last "shared experience", which glues us together. There is no draft. Regular religious practice is declining. We have less in common than ever in my lifetime. Seems our educational system is undermining not only or system of government, but is intentionally dividing us further along racial, ethnic, gender, and political lines. It is a tragedy.
Davis defines what the Democrat Party has to offer in Texas. Is there any wonder Republicans continue to win? Wendy Davis is an embarrassment. Doesn't matter how nasty she gets, or how much money is pumped into her campaign, she's a loser. A lot has been said about the incompetence of her campaign. NO. A candidate's campaign is a reflection of the candidate. The choices are her responsibility. The consequences will follow her into obscurity. Can't happen soon enough.
I was flatly shocked when the very first statement from those nitwits at the CDC was that it was a "breach of protocol"! My first thought was that those sorry political hacks must have stayed up late, coming up with public statements and talking points for a variety of scenarios in the wake of the bungling of the first US ebola case. Good Grief! visions of Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and Oblahblahma dance in my head. Always deflect blame! Blame the victim. Blame the video. Blame some phantom "racist". Blame Republicans. In all scenarios, assign blame first to minimize political responsibility! The CDC has no clue what happened or even IF there was any breached protocol. We, here in Dallas, are not panicked or paranoid. We're sick to death of being LIED to! Sick of CDC incompetence! Sick of this Administration's deadly inaction when it comes to travel restrictions. Heck, Obama and CDC are not on the same page with their "sage" advice to Liberia. Obama trots out and assures the citizens that ebola cannot be caught by sitting next to someone with ebola, and CDC warns NOT to take public transportation! Sheer Idiocy! The budget request for the CDC in 2015 is $6.6 BILLION taxpayer dollars!!!!! Don't know about you, but I feel ripped off. Ebola is nothing new... it's been killing in Africa for at least 12 years. This behemoth federal bureaucracy couldn't handle one single case effectively. Didn't have the "manpower" or ability to screen Obama's unaccompanied children on the border. We're sending troops to Africa to "fight ebola". Really? God bless this nurse, who put her life on the line to care for Duncan. May she make a 100% recovery. Had non-essential travel from effected African countries been in place, none of this would be happening.

Where is the public outcry for changing Columbus Day..... or the Redskins.. or the rest of this idiocy?!?!?! (Braves, tomahawk chop, Rebels, etc.?) It's flat not there, outside the offices of attorneys, professional grievance mongers and shakedown artists! Most Americans are NOT haters, and get along with one another just fine. We care about the economy, debt, jobs, energy, national security, enterovirus/ebola, dangerous open borders, and the future!!!!! This semantic nitwittery is manfactured distraction, a waste of time and ink!

Nurse who helped in treatment of Duncan, has tested positive for Ebola. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/10/12/health-care-worker-at-dallas-hospital-tests-positive-for-ebola/ While the CDC is scrambling to appear revelant, and this Administration continues to make dangerously stupid pronouncements, the enterovirus and ebola viruses spread.
Sadly, this poor guy has died, but his treatment or lack thereof, brings into sharp focus the fecklessness of the CDC! Surely, the hospital fouled up by misdiagnosing him, Texas and Dallas, were unprepared, but our open border policy and the failure of the uber political CDC share the blame! How is it that the CDC... the recipient of billions of taxpayer dollars, has not gotten behind production of an effective vaccine? Does it have to do with drug reglulations? Does it have to do with CDC focus on non-disease political initiatives and study... i.e. marriage, global warming/climate change, etc? It is not like ebola is a new threat! What is it doing about the endovirus, brought in with the "unaccompanied children", and is currently crippling and killing innocent American children? Notice the WHO official who raised the strawman of completely isolating Liberia with flight restrictions. NO ONE SAID THAT, but "non-essential" travel to ebola ravaged countries is reasonable, and should be implemented immediately. Will not happen for at least 2 years. Not as long is this Administration is in power.
