LAS VEGAS -- Two nurses at St. Rose Hospital say their emergency room isn't ready for Ebola. Management at the hospital tells 8 News NOW that is not true.
The nurses say they don't have the training and equipment to be ready in case an Ebola patient walks into the hospital.
Management says anyone on the front lines, who could be faced with an Ebola patient, has the resources they would need.
Both nurses wanted to remain anonymous.
“It's the scariest virus we will probably see for the first time in my life,” one nurse said. “It's definitely a threat.”
The nurses say the St. Rose Hospital where they work is not ready for Ebola and they're speaking out to fix that.
“We need to protect each other and protect the patient, protect the community,” one nurse said.
