    Quoted from gdonovan:

    FYI been party to several meetings and planning sessions with state and local health officials regarding this event so therefor I'd wager I'm better informed than the average person on Pinside watching TV. Without exception there is consensus this is overblown and there is epic amounts of ass covering by officials because the media is flogging this in the public eye and people want "something done." It is a concern of ours of course since the majority of cases that are fatal are people with compromised systems over the age of 60 which is the bulk of the people in our care. And we have taken steps to mitigate this risk at our facility as would be prudent.
    We have numerous protocols and propositioned supplies in place for almost any event. We literately have a 4.5" thick book on the shelf next to me where almost anything and everything is gamed out in advance should an emergency arise and we drill with other facilities and agencies several times a year as required by the state and feds. Pandemics, storms, fire, floods, Anthrax, mass shooter drills, nuclear plant going up, you name it.
    Take normal flu precautions as you should be doing anyways. Most people get ill as they have poor situational awareness as to what they are touching and where they place their hands next. If creeps me out to no end watching people pushing a shopping cart and then causally touch their face or worse stick a finger in their mouth. Gross but I see people do it all the time. How many ill people touched that cart in the last 24 hours? Since I have been in healthcare the number of illness that take me out of work has dropped to less than one every 2 years.
    Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands and watch where you put them is the best advice I can give you. Stay out of excessively crowded areas. You would not catch me flying or on a cruise ship for love or money right now, would not be prudent.

    You compare it to the flu which is extremely inaccurate and frankly irresponsible and you're in healthcare?

    Funny. My college professor aunt with over a dozen published books on healthcare and 2 PHD's says people that spread misinformation like you have death on their hands.

    If it is just the flu then why are you avoiding travel, planes or anything else at all cost?

    I've never been fearful of the flu to where I avoided anything...

    Quoted from gdonovan:

    I'm directly responsible for the lives of 100+ people and have been doing this for well over a decade with full state oversight and regular inspection, your aunt is responsible for how many lives?
    Get. Bent. is my reply.
    You choose to attack me personally, I'll respond the same way.

    -Former president of ASHA. Heard of it?
    -Ran the entire European chapter of nurses as a full bird colonel before that.
    -Tenured at 2 top universities.
    -published over a dozen college health books
    -Former president of Diogene medical prior to international acquisition.

    Or we could ask my uncle who is the head of pediatric infectious disease association of the entire nation.

    But yes. You're more qualified. Gtfo of here

    EDIT: my aunts team discovered the link between HPV and cervical cancer which lead to the direct development of gardasil so to answer your questions she saved a fuck ton more lives then you're casually putting into jeopardy.

    Quoted from gdonovan:

    You did not answer my question; how many people's safety and lives is she directly responsible for every single day?
    Since you dodged the question I'll assume it is zero.
    Good day sir.

    I explain she ran the entire European theater of nurses.

    Ran ASHA ..lol so much more and so many more examples as to how many people she protected AND saved.

    100? We are talking in the scopes of hundreds of thousands bud but you keep doing what you've proven yourself best at doing and assume.

    Ignore obvious truths and assume.

    Quoted from gdonovan:

    She called to carpet by the state if a single person dies?
    Nope. I will if it happens on my watch with charges to follow. So the situation is not academic to me, there is real world consequences.
    For your aunt? Not so much.

    Aged like milk comes to mind.

    Quoted from DBLM:

    Did you intend this to be such a hilariously funny comment or did it just work out that way?
    ASHA = American Speech-Language Hearing Association

    Wrong ASHA but that is humorous. Apparently I cant say anymore as I've been moderated for inflaming with my use of sources neighsaying the misinformation
