Posted on 08/19/2014 8:23:09 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister
A Sacramento hospital announced Tuesday that one of its patients may have Ebola.
Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center said in a release the patient is isolated.
The hospital's Dr. Stephen Parodi said in the release 'We are working with the Sacramento County Division of Public Health regarding a patient admitted to the Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center who may have been exposed to the Ebola virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be testing blood samples to rule out the presence of the virus.

This is the kind of thing they do every year just before flu season, just to raise awareness. They're DEFINITELY trying to raise awareness of Ebola.
Sactramento and Albuquerque now.
It’s popping up here and there, and that’s just what they’re admitting. Let’s hope it can be contained.
Where in North America have they “admitted” Ebola is present other than the two medical personnel at Emory?
Let me guess ... Recent arrival in the US via our southern border?
Why would you guess that?
Really, the hysteria is getting to be a bit much...
Yeah its one of those unnerving things that sits in the back of your mind when you live not far from major hospital. I’ve got the University of Michigan hospital complex about 30 miles away.
How? We have no security in our nation...only security to protect airplanes.
John Hopkins Hospital, did I guess right ?
There was a case in Brampton, Ontario, but not confirmed as Ebola. Then I read about someone tonight in Britain being watched. Now Sacramento. I realize that they’re not “confirmed” cases, but I fear that it will show up sooner or later when I read about the lax treatment in Africa. It would be wise to have travel restrictions, just for safe measure.
I’m wondering if it’s being brought across by the illegals? I remember reading that the border patrol agents were very concerned that many of the illegals were unhealthy and being released among the population without proper screening or medical attention.
I tinks many are parroting words and are un necessarily panicking. Yes, it is center stage in the medias now.
I have a friend who was back in the bush near Gekadoo and he witnessed again, people, several sharing a bowl with their hands and no cutlery. All enjoying the double dipped seasoned flavor of ebolaise sauce. This is regular fare back in the bush.
You would think with behavior like that there would be plenty , plenty more , deaths. That is right in the heartland of bushmeat and bat barbeques. The epicenter.
My wife works in a hospital as well. They are getting bulletins from the state health department.
Nothing “scary”, just transmission, and symptoms to look for.
I don’t know if these things go out regularly but it’s starting to sound creepy.
Oh. Just a hunch.
I think we should bring in more infected people.
Lets hope the Feds do the same with Ebola as they did with thousands of cootie carrying illegals and seed the entire country with them...To all points..
It’s a great winning strategy...Go team..
The jackasses living in this country are going to rue the day their dumbasses ever elected Obama. Morons.
Thank goodness our borders are secure...
Pray tell, and what hospital might that be where you work ?
Fabulous place. My son’s life was saved there. I’m forever grateful. Still don’t like the city where it’s located. Much less the state!
I wonder if Hallmark is designing a new ‘get-well’ card for Ebola, but are struggling with the message.
How do you tactfully say: “Sorry to hear of your infection by the Ebola virus. Extending our fervent wishes for your survival, or for as little suffering as possible.”?
What you and your hospital are doing is great, very good.
Well, keep us posted...please ;-)
Too many falling through the cracks....
A friend of mine works there. Maybe you know her. haha
It seems to me the incidences of people from African Ebola Land countries ending up in various non-African countries with suspicious symptoms is starting to ‘pick up steam’ ...
Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
Obola has arrived. It will be mass distributed through Obamacare. You don’t think certain ‘doctors’ are all-in loyal to the regime?
I doubt they have it. Probably another false alarm. The media and the government want us terrified of this minor disease, which has only killed a little more than 1000-2000 people in nearly 40 years.
Did you meet doctor Ben Carson? What a marvelous neurosurgeon.
Would be difficult for it not too...as said...too many fell through the cracks....the Dr.s there were in panic because they saw that it was out of control....I believe it was...and may continue to be so.
One nation has a shoot to kill if people cross the border. So that in itself speaks volumes.
The article doesn't say a word about where this patient was from or had been. I wonder why?
The question to ask is:
Did this patient sit in the waiting room for an hour? How many other patients, family members, and medical personnel had contact with this patient?
Or did the patient come in by ambulance? If this is the case, was the ambulance set up with a contagion chamber? Or is the driver and attendants now Ebola carriers?
The demand to actually secure the border will be so strong even Obama can’t ignore it once ebola-infected and/or terrorists cross that border.
They likely have already.
Makes me boiling mad....
Saw an interview of Guiliani by Faherty on the Golf Channel that was pretty good. In it Guiliani said that one of the reasons he loves NY is that you can visit and entire world and never leave the city - that no matter what far away place you are from there is someone already there from NY.
You would think that if this gets loose that NY could be destroyed.
They have tested somewhere between 12 and 20 folks in the last few weeks. This is the worst form of sensationalism based on nothing.
so they can have mandatory ebola vaccinations

I think the Ebola sufferer support groups should take some real live Ebola patients on the road to Washington to meet with Congress and senior administration officials to help our devoted leaders learn first-hand the hardships these poor folks are forced to endure in their final weeks (or days) of turning in to a bleeding pile of goo.
Democrats in particular could use a boost in the upcoming elections, as their polls are being driven down by white racists constantly bashing Obama. What better than an on-air commercial for a candidate to be shaking hands with an Ebola victim, showing his/her support for this neglected segment of the people.
About two weeks ago the Peace Corps pulled all of their people from Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, over 300 people in all. They were not quarantined, but dispersed all across the country.
I recall reading at the time it happened that several of the workers were returning to the Sacramento area. I recall thinking that this was a catastrophe waiting to happen.
