Ebola nurse escorted to hospital

Recommended Posts

I saw that.

I initially thought it was an old headline that had popped up thru the BBCs page ranking.

Then i checked the date.

Is it Ebola, or is it anytime she gets a cold or whatever, they put her ICU.

Is she a little mini reservoir  of Ebola in the West???? Thats fcking scarey.

Will she become he woman plastic bubble?

Would you want to be in the same room as her?

Or bringing a lethal and highly-infectious disease to a country where it never existed?

I imagine it is not Ebola but Ebola related damage to her body. With parasites sometimes the body never fully recovers and things like the common cold can hit you like a tonne of bricks where as in the past you would have brushed it off as an inconvenience to your day.

The British public didn't have a choice, this woman was swimming in a scotish public swimming pool!

BTW i read last night that the reason she was let off by the BMA over alleged false temperature declarations on UK return, was stated as "Her mental judgement was affected due to the onset of Ebola infection" !

Probably it! A load of infections can leave you a bit low.

I think it was fairly brave to go out and nurse in an Ebola a hotspot.  Fine line between bravery and stupidity of course, that's a matter of opinion.

I haven't really followed the aftermath properly so not sure if she acted appropriately once suspecting she had symptoms.  Knowing and reporting/getting aid would then have been the braver thing.

P

Read The Hotzone.  Not stupidity but near suicidal insanity.   And that is just for her - the real insanity is that she could very well have led to a outbreak in the UK.  

There seems to be this attitude that 'all these backward people need is the godlike hand of the west' - it is an arrogant attitude at the best of times, let alone during these extreme episodes.

In fact, the only positive part of it could be that it has given the UK staff experienced in how to deal with an ebolavirus outbreak; given the way infectious diseases can spread this might be a useful skillbase.

that's the problem with being overly nice.heart rules head.No common sense.

you help others,but subject your nearest and dearest to dangers and consequences you hadn't really thought about(like infecting close family members and then jeapordising the wellbeing of the society at large)

Pretty much sums up the faults with government policy for the last 30 years or so.

..and in blairs case it was deliberate and malevolent,rather than well meaning but naive.

Easy to say, but there's a line between being dangerously naive and simply sitting back and saying "feck you" to everyone else who suffers. Without people taking such risks (not necessarily people from here, just talking in general) would ebola still be spreading, completely out of control?

There were relatively few foreign health workers in west Africa during the outbreak.  

The way the outbreak was stopped was strong information to the public and mandated behaviour controls.  Not getting those infected (after they became infectious) into a hospital and nursing them.

[the evidence is that so long as you slow movements of people these type of viruses blow themselves out - unlike a nasty flu, say, they're just too lethal to propagate.  Flying exposed people around the world, however, would be an effective transfer mechanism.]

I would agree that substantial supply of drugs and equipment (and even food) to affected areas would be a suitable action.

of course.

but even it is dangerously naive, then our illustrious leaders need enough noggin to understand that it is potentially dangerous.We employ them to undertake these duties and to do them to the best of their ability.Even in the corporate world,negligence and gross misconduct are sackable offences.No different for our employees(the civil sevice,MP's etc)

this is ultimately the crux of the matter vis a vis public service.Whether they are employees,or a new "higher caste" priesthood.

they consider themselves "enlightened",and we via the ballot box,have temporarily granted them power of attorney (trustee status),on our behalf to employ their higher sensibilities.If we deem them to be incorrect,then we have a DUTY to remove them and replace them with sensible leadership.If they are wrong, it MUST be exercised,and those in the wrong brought to book,

 

if they are CRIMINALLY negligent ,then they should be in prison

if they are INTENTIONALLY negligent,that's treason,and the gallows awaits.

Surely, given the serious risk from Ebola, she should attend a hospital for a full medical every week.

Is she still working as a nurse?  I'm not slighting her skills but if she is then really?

Its dumb nurses all the way down ....

' But Wood’s career could end over events at Heathrow airport when the volunteers flew home on 28 December 2014. All the returnees had to be screened to ensure they did not have a high temperature that might be the first sign of Ebola fever. Chaotic conditions and long delays were described in the screening unit, with too few staff to process the exhausted volunteer nurses and doctors, so they took each other’s temperatures. '

You might want to read that article a couple of times.

A planeful of volunteers from a country experiencing an outbreak of one of the most deadliest viruses lands in Heathrow - one of the worlds busiest airports. Rather than a belts and braces operation, which you'd expect, they take each others temperatures FFS.

 but was cleared on the grounds that she had already become too ill to understand the implications of her actions.

Just shocking really.
Oh it's ok you were so full of nasty virus than you couldn't be expected to act rationally. FFS.

Sort of.

Its not just the Pauline Nurse. Its the Nurse who took her temperature.

Where is the forward planning on this FFS?

You have a plane load of people who have been working in a Biohazard.

Do you land them at Boscombe Down, where they'll not meet any civilians and you can set up some form isolation and  processing facility.

Or do you land them at one of the worlds busiest airports where there is not space to store a bottle of paracetamols and the there are huge number of international passengers.

They whole lot is just nuts.

Indeed.
Anywhere but a major international hub.
