going public with this information? Should she be fired from the Texas

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I think sister Briana Aquirre did right thing for bringing the ignorance of the hospital administration and brought everything to public, so that everyone is aware of this thing because Ebola virus is very deadly virus and if proper care is not taken , many people can catch this and many people could have died.So for her courageous step she should not be fired from the hospital.Whenever some one takes this type of step, always some opposition will be there, but if something is good for the society then we should be firm on that. And I think sister Briana did the right thing by telling publicly.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
