Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders marched with Kaiser Permanente nurses, members of National Nurses United, today calling for the federal government and hospitals to meet the highest “uniform, national standards and protocols” in order to “safely protect patients, all healthcare workers and the public” to beat Ebola.

RNswho work at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas have come down with the disease – a tragic occurrence that “was predictable in our fragmented, uncoordinated private healthcare system, and it mirrors concerns we’ve heard from nurses across the U.S.,” said NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro.

“Not one more patient, nurse, or healthcare worker should be put at risk due to a lack of health care facility preparedness,” DeMoro said in a letter to President Obama. “The United States should be setting the example on how to contain and eradicate the Ebola virus.”
