Ebola Song Disrespect

At the 48th annual Country Music Association Awards the atmosphere was jovial and fill with audience. Who was amuse at Carrie underwood & Brad Paisley Ebola Song Disrespect Along with roaring crowd of people. Who seem to enjoy the mockery. Targeting nurses caregivers. That had just taken place.

Why should anyone respect Nurses?

Nurses don’t want to be everyone jokes of the day. We want to be respected. For nurses like me on the forefront. This is an insult.  It never seems to amazed me. How every profession are given honor. We rally for teachers.  Favor Doctors and celebrity figures. Are seen as someone to look up to. But nurses are different. Unless you are Nurse Jackie TV celebrity.

“This song goes out to one little feisty nurse in Maine. Who is probably riding her bike now.” Carrie said. She then belted out. “Quarantine — don’t ride your bike. Please don’t infect my man.”

Song was about Kaci Hickox and RN from Maine. Who refused mandatory quarantined in New Jersey. Kaci Hickox career led her to  treat Ebola victims in West Africa.  While traveling back home. Flight layover in New Jersey and Gov Chris Christie rule. At the time was she had to stay until clear. She was not diagnosed. Tested negative for Ebola. But the issues  more about how nurses are made to feel less. On a daily based. Registered Nurses in California set to walk out. On 11/11 & 11/12/2014 called for National Action. In 12 states for hospitals to implement set of stricter Ebola crisis plans. That is related to protected equipment and training.

This quotes sum up how nurses feel. “I have experienced real depression in my life. It offers the opportunity to do something about suffering.  You have to be strong. To be a nurse. You need strong muscles and stamina. For the long shifts and heavy lifting. Intelligence and discipline to acquire knowledge and exercise critical thinking.

Disrespect nurses

As for emotional fortitude well I’m still working on that. Most of all you need moral courage. Because nursing is about the pursuit of justice. It requires you stand up to bullies. To do things that are right. But difficult and to speak your mind. Even when you are afraid. I wasn’t strong like this when I started out. Nursing made me strong.” Tilda Shalof

RN’S  need to have a strong voice.  Let not another country singer. Like Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley Ebola Song Disrespect or jokes continues. To become a habit. Ebola is no Joke. Ebola Song is belittling. Let us stop the name calling. Calling Kaci Hickox Ebola Nurse is appalling.  Should not be tolerated.  Do you think it is rights. To call someone out of their name?
