When I returned to work from a two-week vacation in early August, it quickly became apparent that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was far worse than originally anticipated and that the world’s response was, shall we say, sub-optimal. Amazingly enough, all that’s still largely true, two long and scary months later. Locally, huge players like Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, UCSF Medical Center, Dignity Health, Blue Shield of California and Stanford Health Care have had little to say about the epidemic, and have done relatively little to aid the fight in West Africa.
