SAN FRANCICSO (KCBS)— Last week the state of California announced any Ebola cases will be treated at five designated UC medical centers from Davis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Irvine and San Diego. However, on Tuesday about a dozen nurses protested at UCSF’s Parnassus campus.

Recovery Nurse Erin Carrera said the only training or preparation they’ve received is by email.

“We were blown away on Friday to hear announced that we are going to be an Ebola center and that we are ready to take any Ebola cases to come in the State of California. We’re not ready. We’re hearing the same from our colleagues across the UC’s. It’s an outrage that they’ve put that out in the public that we’re ready when we’re not. We need personal protective equipment. We need training. We have received none of that,” she said.

Carrera said not one nurse has been given a personal protective suit or even a protocol for screening patients. Carrera and some of the other nurses have said if someone with Ebola showed up today, they would have no idea what to do or the equipment they would need to do it.

UCSF insists its preparedness is far along. Nurse volunteers are being trained intensively and that its Mt. Zion Campus will be the first to be ready to receive patients with Ebola.
