A group representing Massachusetts nurses says many hospitals in the state are ill-prepared to deal with a case of Ebola.

David Schildmeier, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Nurses Association says that frontline health workers such as nurses lack the resources necessary to protect themselves while treating an Ebola patient.

However, Schildmeier did single out Morton Hospital in Taunton, and its parent company Steward Healthcare, as an organization that is working with nurses to create a protocol that will allow health workers to safely and effectively treat Ebola patients.
