The nurse who was quarantined at a New Jersey hospital because she had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa criticized the way her case has been handled, raising concerns from humanitarian and human rights groups over unclear policies for the newly launched quarantine program. Kaci Hickox, the first traveler quarantined under Ebola watches in New Jersey and New York, wrote the first-person account for the Dallas Morning News, which was posted on the paper’s website Saturday. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Friday imposed a mandatory quarantine of 21 days — the incubation period of the deadly virus — on travelers who have had contact with Ebola patients in the countries ravaged by Ebola — Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. A similar measure was announced in Illinois, where officials say such travelers could be quarantined at home.–Ebola-Travelers%20Quarantine/id-013abf0a9ca84ad6873f26ff4d35cdb3

You make the educated decision to go to a country with an epidemic outbreak. To help people is a great thing. To come back to your country where you friends and family live. Making the educated decision to possibly infect them and to put others at risk is wrong. 6 hours of her day to make sure she doesn’t have Ebola. I say we boycott all nurses and doctors that do not comply with the safety of the American people.  Let’s say Kaci Hickox did not comply with due process and she infected someone and then know what we sue her for neglect. It was an educated decision for her not to do due process. I say will sue!!! Make Doctors and Nurses liable for who they infect….

So how was nurse Nina Pham suddenly cured? She was the first person to catch Ebola on U.S. soil, 13 days after she tested positive, now she's disease free.
I don't get it.
