Health workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola

Categories:
program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 10/20/2014
In mid-September, Dr. Lisa Brosseau and Dr. Rachael Jones wrote a commentary for CIDRAP News, a service of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy at the University of Minnesota, titled “Health Workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola.”
Brosseau and Jones are professors in the School of Public Health, Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
Their article was picked up by some right-wing bloggers, who exaggerated and misattributed some of its contents, adding fuel to the fire of sensationalistic media coverage of the current Ebola outbreak, as well as to the politicization of the issue during this campaign season.
On October 16, CIDRAP News published a “Response to statements falsely attributed to CIDRAP regarding Ebola transmission,” while standing by the scientific soundness and importance of the contents of the Commentary.
The central issue of Brosseau and Jones’ commentary, regarding the need to protect health workers and aides from possible exposure to Ebola via infectious aerosol particles, is a critical one that has been largely ignored by the medical establishment.
 
On Saturday, KBOO’s Paul Roland spoke by phone with Dr. Brosseau to get a fuller understanding of the issues raised by the article.

Washington County Clinic Closures Would Hurt Farm Laborers

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 10/02/2014
On September 23, 2014, the Washington County Board heard a proposal in a closed work session, from Director of Health and Human Services Marni Kuyl, to close the two publicly-funded health clinics, on in Hillsboro and another in Beaverton.
          The proposal cites increased insurance coverage as a result of the Affordable Care Act and Oregon’s Medicaid expansion as driving factors of reduced patient numbers.
          However, the closure of these clinics will effectively end publicly-funded health care in the county.
          According to the advocacy group Western Farm Workers Association in Hillsboro, this would have a disproportionate and disastrous effect on low-paid farm laborers.
          KBOO’s Sam Bouman spoke to Western Farm Workers’ Guillermo Magallon for more.

Bureau of Labor and Industries Investigates Daimler for Racial Harassment

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 10/02/2014
The Bureau of Labor and Industry has launched an investigation on behalf of five Daimler Trucks North America employees for allegations of racial harassment by coworkers and failure to take corrective action by the company’s management.
The Oregon Labor Commissioner, Brad Avakian, has filed a commissioner’s complaint against the company, saying “No employee in Oregon should have to face racial discrimination and intimidation”.
The alleged civil rights violations include employees using racial epithets against African American coworkers, physical intimidation, and in one instance, an African American employee being confronted by another worker holding a noose in the company parking lot.
If the Bureau does find evidence confirming the allegations it could prosecute the company and potentially individual perpetrators of the harassment.       
KBOO’s Ethan Martin interviewed Commissioner Brad Avakian earlier today

Save Saint Francis Park

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 09/17/2014
Saint Francis Park on southeast twelfth avenue in Portland, which has served as a haven for many people in the area, has been sold to Catholic Charities.
The non-profit group will bulldoze the park and construct a housing development for low-income Portlanders in its place.

The park is the only one between Buckman and the river, and many local residents are still hoping to save the park from the bulldozers.

Catholic Charities plans to reserve 25 units for women transitioning out of homelessness or abusive homes through the organization's assistance programs.
St. Francis Park has been a popular site for respite among the homeless population for several years.  Taking that space away will create a vacuum, which neither the city nor Catholic Charities have any plan to address.

Ed Lyle is trying to save the park, and spoke with KBOO about his plan.
