Ebola: Send in Rick Smith to show them how it’s done

So I’m listening to the Rick Smith Show podcast and I actually learned something new about Rick. He’s been trained to do first responder work and get this… he has hazmat training!

This got me to thinking, why is is that the government and institutions who are in control of these situations fail to listen to the workers, the people on the ground who do this work everyday? These are the people with the experience.

You had nurses from the National Nurses United union going all over the country saying that hospitals were not prepared for the Ebola outbreak. Yet these hospitals just chose to ignore them.

Now getting back to Rick Smith he said he’s done those drills where you suit up and then decontaminate yourself. I think he’d be better to listen to than many of the fearmongerers in the media right now.
