Bellevue Nurses Call In Sick In Record Numbers After Ebola Patient Arrives

From the New York Post:
An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post. 
“The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick,” one source said.

I understand that the medical personnel who treated patient zero acted on an entirely voluntary basis. These NY nurses seem to be forced to work with the Ebola patient. Not too good.
