Ebola and the spoilt brat
This incredibly self centred nurse who's amazing hubris allows her to speak as an authority on Ebola, which she certainly is not, is illustrative of the extraordinary attitude that everyone's opinion carries equal weight. She has the unmitigated gall and brazen effrontery to challenge the most knowledgeable experts and to pretend that she knows the unknowable and is prepared to take the small risk that she could unleash an epidemic. She is doing this because she felt that she was not treated with sufficient deference, felt unappreciated and demeaned by the poor facilities that were available to her by the stumbling, fumbling workers and policy makers who were doing their best to try and avoid spread, knowing full well where the blame would be placed should things go wrong, She was more interested in challenging the protocols that though unpopular and inconvenient, may prove to be the safest thing to do. Encouragement by jounalists and lawyers likely played some part. She is a poor example of a health care professional and it is likely that her behaviour will influence other health care workers to put their personal comfort ahead of the welfare of the public.
No doubt the book will be appearing soon.
