Ebola-Treating RN Forcibly Quarantined in Prison-Like Conditions
An American Registered Nurse (RN), who traveled to West Africa on a mercy mission to care for patients with Ebola, recently returned to the U.S. This RN had performed acts of courage, charity and service that brought her in close contact with these desperately ill Ebola patients.
Other Americans having had similar contact with Ebola had been cautioned to go home and self-monitor. This American RN was not similarly cautioned. Instead, she was rewarded for her heroism by being forcibly isolated from family and friends and quarantined in bleak, third-world prison-like conditions. Is it any wonder she complained about her mistreatment?
I guess it’s true what they say: “No good deed goes unpunished.”
