- — Spoopy Nurse Jo (@grimalkinrn)Wed, Oct 15 2014 18:27:51I still believe Ebola can be safely contained here in the U.S. with proven methods & implementation of checklists & Buddy systems.
- Then I saw this tweet

- Already angry at Twitter users who were not journalists blaming Nina Pham, RN for the disease, I was naturally frustrated at this irresponsible attempt at clickbaiting his article on NBC.com.

- — tonydokoupil (@tonydokoupil)Wed, Oct 15 2014 00:37:15@grimalkinrn I quote the cdc on Pham being a brave nurse with above average training and no one knows how she got Ebola. Not a hit job.

- — Spoopy Nurse Jo (@grimalkinrn)Wed, Oct 15 2014 00:37:42I have seen far too many articles placing the blame on Nina Pham, RN for contracting Ebola in the care of a patient. #ISupportNinaPhamRN
- — Spoopy Nurse Jo (@grimalkinrn)Wed, Oct 15 2014 00:42:17#ISupportNinaPhamRN I'd also like to remind people that Ebola is called "the caregiver's disease" because of the high rate of transmission.

- — tonydokoupil (@tonydokoupil)Wed, Oct 15 2014 00:44:10@grimalkinrn Do ccrn's need Ebola specific training? Fair q, I thought, but my language could have been more precise and for that I'm sorry!
- — Spoopy Nurse Jo (@grimalkinrn)Wed, Oct 15 2014 00:45:36CCRNs actually need HUNDREDS of clinical hours before receiving certification, as well as continuing education. @tonydokoupil

Nurses, Ebola and Whistleblowing: Recent History
I have been frustrated and angered by those who chose to blame the first nurses in local hospitals in the US to care for an Ebola case for contracting Ebola. I am further enraged by those who demand nurses complaining give their names to be taken seriously.
