Gloria J. Brigham, EdD, MN, RN, director of nursing practice at the Washington State Nurses Association, a union, said training isn't always occurring. "We've heard from our constituents that there is a lot of inconsistency in whether key care providers were trained and tested prior to this event," Brigham told Medscape Medical News. She added, "There probably is still inconsistency on whether people are fit tested for the equipment."
