    Also happened in my city recently that is what a smart hospital does not what texas did. Turns out our patient just had the flu but still came from west africa and had a fever, our hospital locked him down real fast and no one went in or out till he did not have ebola.

    It's not a hospital, It's a clinic.

    should be just the wing he is in or if he was in ambulance closes of the ward he is going in. This isn't rocket science

    Why are they bringing these people to hospitals/clinics.

    Set up something in the middle of nowhere. Take them there. With medical attention of course.

    :secret: He's not in Braintree anymore.
    He went in to pick up a prescription and the staff over-reacted because he traveled to Africa recently.
