“Because there’s no hospital here that’s prepared for Ebola,” said Gillian Brown of National Nurses United. “We haven’t gotten hands on effective training that we need to take care of any patient that walks into the ER. That’s what this is about.”

The nurses who did not want to identify the hospitals at which they work said they don’t want to see another health care professional get sick caring for an Ebola patient.
