Nurses Wore No Protection for Ebola Case

According to medical records, health care workers treating the original Dallas Ebola patient did not wear protective hazardous-material suits for two days until tests confirmed he had the virus. The delay in using Hazmat suits provided the short window in which workers may have been exposed. This increases the possibility that other health care workers could have been infected. The second nurse who was infected, 29-year-old Amber Joy Vinson, inserted catheters, drew blood, and dealt with Duncan's bodily fluids.
