What’s Bugging You…A Microbiologist Answers Your Questions…
So, with all this talk of Ebola and health care workers, of which I have been one for the past 10+ years, I figured, maybe I should put up a post concerning Ebola where I would be willing to answer serious questions from commenters in the comments section to the best of my knowledge as an active Microbiology Medical Laboratory Scientist.
I don’t mind, and I plan to offer this to a few other blogs where I post. I figured when you have experienced knowledge about some subject, it always better to help spread factual information rather than allow misinformation to become embedded in the psyche.
Any questions, I cannot answer or that is outside my purview of knowledge, I can ask some of my other friends who are currently working in the hospital laboratory, CDC and beyond.
So ask away…”the doctor is in”…
One caveat, I’d like to try to have nothing bout politics if I can help it, just use of my own personal experiences in the laboratory. I’ve worked both in public health, a major public hospital, a private hospital (sister hospital to Presby Dallas), Catholic hospital, and back now at public hospital owned by “private” company. All of which has been in the Microbiology laboratory. But I have friends and former coworkers who currently work is other parts of the lab, nursing, research lab.
The questions need not only be about Ebola, if there are any questions you’d like to ask about infectious diseases or the Microbiology lab or lab protocols, ask away.
I’ll check back periodically for any new comments and questions.
