Speaking from the joint ICN-Spanish Council of Nursing meeting on Ebola in Madrid, ICN’s Chief Executive Officer, David Benton, emphasized the need for appropriate protocols for each individual case, “because each treatment needs a proper and specific procedure.” “It is also likely that we will need new protocols,” he added, “because, for example, in Spain, the cases have only been among adults.
