Position statement in support of nurses working with Ebola
The Ingram School of Nursing commends all nurses who are making contributions in the fight against Ebola. We recognize that the care these nurses provide brings them in contact with infectious bodily fluids on a regular basis. They undergo grueling shifts as they don personal protective equipment and work lengthy hours - some without proper remuneration or on a voluntary basis. We recognize the dedication and expertise they bring to the care of people infected with the Ebola virus.
We also would like to acknowledge the stigma, ostracism, fear and potential danger they and they families face on a daily basis, and, in particular, West African nurses. Some of these dedicated nurses and their families have given their lives in their effort to care for the sick and dying.
