(CNSNews.com) – The co-president of National Nurses United, the nation’s largest nursing union, told C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” Wednesday that there was no protocol for nurses at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital to follow when treating Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan.

“Remember the CDC said there was a breach in protocol. From the nurses point of view, there really was no protocol, and they of course had asked for it, had begged for it,” said Jean Ross.
