7:04 am
flight back to dallas even though she had a temperature of 99.5. on wednesday the director of the cdc first said she should have never taken that flight. >> at that point she was in a group of individuals known to have exposure to ebola. she should not have traveled on a commercial airline. >> wednesday night the see dk said someone on his staff gotten a call monday. she told him she had a fever and asked if it was time to fly. the see dk considered health care workers that had worn protective gear to be at lower risk but government officials said based on see dk guidelines vinson was never told not to take the flight. frontier was notified yesterday by the see dk vinson may have been symptomatic earlier than initially suspected including the possibility of possessing symptoms while on board the flight.

>> we'll worry whose fault later. let's move forward and keep this community safe. >> reporter: 75 hospital workers, being closely monitored. the see dk director confirming there was no consistent protocol at the hospital in terms of what protective gear to wear. some wore layers of gloves. >> the risk of contamination during the process of taking these gloves off gets much higher. >> reporter: the mayor isn't very happy. is it human error? >> i think it's human beings coming together on the first time on a tough subject and this is a hard disease when you are perfect and when you only get 80 on the grade, that's not acceptable. >> reporter: president obama canceled fundraising trips planned for today as his administration deals with the deadly virus. >> we are monitoring, service supervising, overseeing in a much more aggressive way in dallas initially and making sure the lessons learned are transmitted to hospitals and

7:07 am
attorney bob kelly. earlier she spoke about their lack of planning protocol and precautions. >> i would imagine when you have a possible ebola patient walking into an emergency room given all the attention paid to the crisis in west africa and the fear of it coming to the united states it would be some code red. that there be a lock down, that emergency protocols would be put immediately into place. is that what you experienced? >> well, first, i think we all have been watching too much tv. because we never talked about ebola and we probably should have. i mean -- >> you never talked about it prior to mr. duncan arriving? >> no. we never had a discussion. they gave us an optional seminar to go to, just informational. not hands on and it was, it wasn't even suggested that we go. it wasn't, you know, something, that they say you really should try to make it. i believe it was only offered once, if not twice. we were never told what to look
7:08 am
for. i don't think that any facility in the country is prepared for that at this time. >> so when mr. duncan came to the emergency room a possible ebola patient, where was he placed? what kind of procedures immediately kicked into gear, if any? >> first let me say, i was not a nurse that cared for him and so i only know what my co-workers, people in care of him, handling his lab specimens. i was setting next to the doctor who was in charge of his care that day, and all i know for sure without any speculation, without any, you know, without being here misleading here at all is that he was put into an area where there are up to seven other patients. we took probably around three hours to make our first contact with the cdc to even let them know that what we had is our
7:09 am
suspicion. you know, there was no special precautions other than what we know in the medical industry to be basic contact precautions and droplet precautions, no special gear. we were unprepared in the sense that we didn't know what to do with his lab specimens. they were mishandled, and that's what the lab technician told me. it was a chaotic scene. our infectious department was contacted to ask what is the protocol and their answer was "we don't know. we'll have to call you back." >> i want to talk to you about the protective gear that you initially wore. you did care for my nina pham, contracted the virus while she cared for mr. duncan. you described there was a shield and a mask and a gown that covered your arms. you wore gloves and booties over your shoes, but there was a
7:10 am
glaring difficulty or problem. there was a gap in your protective gear at your neck of several inches where your skin was exposed. is that true? >> just to clarify this very complicated story, initially, we were advised to wear a gown, front and back. by the time that i even partook in the ebola situation in my hospital, we were already wearing what i guess would be hazmat suits. they were tyvek suits. they were dupont suits, and it was basically, you know, just like you would have in a snowsuit or any hoodie, it would zip up to about here and then from there go into a hood up around my face, like this, around my whole face. on top of that was a mask in front of me that would go under my chin to here. so from here to here was uncovered. >> and that concerned you and
7:11 am
you complained about it or you at least asked the officials at the hospital why that was being allowed to happen, correct? >> in fact, i'll just be honest, i threw a fit. i just, i couldn't believe it. you know, in the second week of the ebola crisis at my hospital, the only gore they're offering us at that time and up until that time is gear is that is allowing our necks to be uncovered and i just spot out asked several infectious disease nurses, i asked the cdc, why would i be wearing two pairs of gloves, three pairs of booties, a plastic suit covering my entire body and leave my neck hanging out this much so that it can, somebody can potentially go close to my mouth or nose? >> there are a lot of other hospitals in the dallas area. texas health presbyterian could have put a call out to other hospitals saying do you have the
7:12 am
suits that protect the entire body? why don't you think they did that? >> i'm in no, i'm not in administration and i would only be speculating. i'm someone that i guess you would say is at the bottom of the totem pole here. i only know what information trickles down to me, but i actually posed that same question to someone who identified himself as the vice president of our organization. i asked him, "then good, you're the vice president. you can go and ask for these supplies that we need." and he advised me, he would call me back. i asked him for a contact phone number so we can call someone more at the top of the totem pole and ask them for direct things that we need. because it's not just that that we were missing. he said he will call me back with a phone number that i can reach help with and he had never called me back. >> you, i mentioned, worked at this hospital and have worked there for three years. you love your job.
7:13 am
you are not a union member. in dallas there, there isn't that nurse's union. you are now saying things are going to make a lot of people at that hospital look very, very bad. are you worried about the fallout here? for you, personally? >> i want to say that i'm sorry, for my co-workers, i know a lot of people will be proud of me right now. i'm sorry for those who are not. what i'm doing here is not wrong and i don't believe anyone can argue that. and i'm very concerned about losing my job. it's the best job i ever had. i travel a great distance to work there. i don't live close to that hospital. i am the bread winner of my family and i'm terrified. i'm like the majority of the middle class working class people, just a couple paychecks away from not being able to pay my mortgage, and i'm terrified
7:14 am
about that. and i don't know about my future there at that hospital or at any hospital. >> bob, does she have any protection? >> well, matt, as you know, we are doing everything we can to protect her. she's what is commonly known as a whistleblower and we have a history in these companies, when somebody comes out like this and blows the whistle of what's going on of retaliating against them. so she's got a 7-year-old daughter, a 10-year-old daughter, she's the bread winner in her family. our law firm is doing everything we can to protect her at this point. it's my hope after the american people hear today what's going on at that hospital, that the country will come behind and support her. >> brianna, finally for you, you are in that 21-day period where you are monitoring your temperature a couple times a day. although as i mentioned, there are no restrictions placed on you moving around right now. but if, and i don't -- this is hypothetical.
7:15 am
if you were to start to experience symptoms of ebola, texas health presbyterian hospital would be the recommended hospital for you to go to for treatment. how would you feel about that? >> you know, i have played that situation out in my head and knowing what i know, i would try anything and everything to refuse to go there to be treated. i would feel at risk by going there. if i don't actually have ebola, i may contract it there is how i actually feel. i would do anything to refuse to go there. >> breanna aguirre and bob kely, thank you both very much. i appreciate your time this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you, matt. >> let me say off the bat, it was difficult for her to come forward. she said it over and over, she loves that job. she posted on facebook a while ago she was so proud of her hospital that if ebola had come to her area she thought her hospital would be best prepared
7:16 am
to handle it. that all changed when mr. duncan walked through that door. >> this is a level 1 trauma center. everybody looking around is going to be asking the questions, if that's happening at one of the top hospitals in the country, what is happening at my hospital? >> that's right. we are going to hear more of that interview coming up. and dr. mehmet oz will be here with reaction. you can see the entire interview on today.com. there are more good news when it comes to gas prices. tamron is here with more. >> this is the larger picture of the economy as well, guys. there is a whole lot less pain at the pump today. aaa says the price of a gallon of regular is down $3.16, and in some places much lower than that. nbc's janet shamlian has more. >> reporter: it's sticker shock. but in a good way the price of gas taking a certified nose dive. a gallon of regular $3 nationwide. gasoline is now it's lowest price in four years. what do you think this is saving
7:17 am
you on gas? >> like about $100 a week. so that's pretty good for right now. >> reporter: since the start of the month, prices have dropped 15 cents. about 50 cents since the end of june, and hang on. analysts say it could drop another 20 cents. >> the real reason the gas prices are falling right now at steeper rates than we have seen in years is due to the freefall in crude oil prices. >> reporter: after hitting a peak of $104 over the summer, oil dipped to as low as $80 on wednesday. >> prices haven't been this cheap in years. it's a blessing and a saving at the same time. a double whammy. >> reporter: for many, saving even a few bucks makes a big difference. >> during the summer it cost me $35 just to fill up. now it only costs me 15 bucks. >> reporter: that's a big difference. >> that's a very big difference. >> reporter: consumers pocketing the difference as gas prices fall.
7:18 am
for "today" janet shamlian, nbc news, baytown, texas. >> now, despite falling oil, gas prices are more turbulent on wednesday during a day of market jitters the dow at one point was down 460 points. it rebounded some, closed down 173 points. a frightening story is developing in nepal where 70 people are missing in mountains popular with hikers. the area has been buried by blizzards and avalanches. several hikers were rescued today, but at least 25 others were killed and officials fear the death toll, the number of people killed will go up. it's on to the world series for the kansas city royals. last night they completed a four-game sweep of the orioles to make it to the world series. for the first time, if you are counting, and they are, for 29 years with a win over baltimore set off a wild celebration on the field, and in the kansas city clubhouse, the royals will meet the winner of the giants/cardinal series. san francisco leads 3-1 game.

9:01 am
we're just down the hall from the al roker television studio, which gives you an idea really not much -- nobody of any note has graduated from here. they all went ahhh. it was a shameless attempt to get sympathy. thank you so much. >> it works every time, though. >> all right, al, we'll check in with you in just a couple of minutes. how cool is that, you go to school and come back and two years later your name is up above. >> that's so major, i love that. >> that's what al roker does. meanwhile the latest on this ebola story. we're talking with nurse briana aguir aguirre. her colleagues treated thomas eric duncan, the man who died last week. she did not. but she talked to matt earlier this morning and talking about some of the concerns that she and she says other health care personnel have at that hospital, specifically about the protective gear they're using or not using. >> and it was basically, you
9:02 am
know, just like you would have in a snowsuit or any hoodie, it would zip up to about here. then from there go into a hood up around my face, like this around my whole face. and then on top of that was a mask in front of me that would go under my chin to here. so from here to here was up covered. >> if you were to start to experience symptoms of ebola, texas health presbyterian hospital would be the recommended hospital for you to go to for treatment. how would you feel about that? >> you know, i played that situation out in my head, and knowing what i know, i would try anything and everything to refuse to go there to be treated. i wolf at risk by going there. if i don't actually have ebola, i may contract it there. >> wow, and that's coming from a
9:03 am
nurse that works inside that hospital. >> and hospital officials, specifically daniel varga, will participate in this hearing later today on capitol hill. i can't wait to see if one of the lawmakers specifically cites this interview and rather than a written statement, rather than a statement that comes in the middle of the night on capitol hill respond to that specific allegation from that nurse. >> she goes on to recount, you know, more details about the night when thomas duncan presented himself to the hospital. all of the errors that were made since then and continue to be made there. in fact she says some of the nurses that she works with, she's on vacation right now but she's allowed to walk around freely. there is -- obviously she's checking herself regularly and doing all the things that she's supposed to be doing but the nurses that she works with, they're going to work as well and they're still encountering people who could potentially be cases of ebola. so a lot of questions that she's raising. i think a lot of unanswered
9:04 am
questions and concerns. >> the other part from the cdc i think people are worried about today is amber vincent, the second nurse diagnosed with ebola, was allowed to get on a flight to cleveland, spend time with friends and family. she called and said should i travel and the cdc said yes. >> she said she had like a 99.5. >> which is below their threshold. >> low grade, though. >> that's amazing i think to a lot of people that that was allowed to go on. meanwhile last night symbol survivor dr. kent brantly speak to cnn's anderson cooper. still says he doesn't know how he got the disease. >> do you know how you got it? was there a moment that you look back on and say that was it, that was the moment? >> i am convinced that i did not get ebola in the isolation unit. >> really? >> our process there was safe. every time i went into that unit full of ebola patients, i was fully suited up in the tvvex
9:05 am
suit, mask. >> every part of your skin was covered up. >> every inch. >> then i'm curious, how does he believe he got it? >> and all these months later he still doesn't know. >> and he's going through in his head, they followed every single protocol and procedure. so even having those protocols and procedures in place, mistakes happen. so what kind of a dad are you? when the baby is crying in the middle of the night do you get up and take care of them? >> luckily they don't cry in the middle of the night too much. i'll be honest -- >> did you duck the night shift? >> christina and i have an agreement that for me to get up for an hour or two in the morning wouldn't make a lot of sense. i would be there during the day and she'd get up in the night. but the question here is do guys fake sleep when they hear the baby cry? >> turns out they do. they do. there was a survey conducted. apparently 56% of dads pretend to be asleep when their kids are
9:06 am
crying in the night. they say the babies are crying for mom anyway, they don't want me half the time. >> we are the worst. >> i do have to say my husband i give all the credit in the world because we have that same deal. he knows i'm getting up at god awful hours in the morning, so he pretty much is the one who answers the call a lot. so pretty lucky in that sense. >> it's almost half and half. i was just trying to find a silver lining. like 85% say i did not hear my own child scream. >> i do think and maybe even sympathize. there is a moment, like on a weekend when i do have to wake up and it's the middle of the night and you hear the cry. you both lie there and see is the other one going to move or am i going to move? there's that chess match that you play. >> plus if you get up to comfort the child and it doesn't work. you're like i got up. >> the list of excuses, the top five excuses, they say i've got to go work tomorrow. like we don't have to? i did it last night. they're calling for you, not me,
9:07 am
and then i just pretend to be asleep as we talked about. you're better at dealing with it than i am. that doesn't work. >> that's never the right answer. >> what could you say that would get you out of that? nothing. >> we take turns. that's the only way to handle it. share responsibility. >> it took two to have that child. it takes two to take care of it. something else we like, throwback thursday. we go online and spy on celebrities. i couldn't even get it out. to see what they're posting on instagram. and madonna put up a picture and it says unconsciously transmitting ideas to the other m.c. way back quantum. that is a picture of madonna in the early days. i don't know the year -- >> early '80s? >> before "borderline"? that was the first hit. well, no, she was blonde by then. anyway, madonna, call us and let us. was she channeling miley?
9:08 am
>> miley was channeling her perhaps back in the day. >> oh, that's right. the chicken came before the egg. i was thinking how much madonna looks like her daughter, lordes, which you should because it's your child, but it's a really uncanny resemblance with lordes who's now in college. i read a story that she could have her own apartment, her mom's super rich. she's sharing a dorm room and she's at the university of michigan where her mom went to school. let's get a check of weather with al again up in oswego. >> today's weather is brought to you by progressoh light soups. 100 calories per serving. progress oh light supoups. >> i got to go to my dorm i stayed in here back in 1972. anyone here from annendaga? the first year i went was the first year they had coed dorms here. it didn't really do me any good.

9:15 am
you're a pro so i won't ask you how you balance is because that's your job, but how do you decompress when you're dealing with buried secrets after you leave? >> you know, theater is interesting. i for some reason had this idea that i'd go and do my job for two and a half hours and have the rest of the day to myself. theater really stays with you all day and kind of your entire day is about getting up on stage for those two and a half hours and giving the best performance you can for every person who buys a ticket to see you. but that's one of the reasons i moved to new york, live theater. i was born and raised in los angeles and we didn't have access to live theater the way you do here in new york. i moved here to watch live theater, but also as an actress to get to do live theater. so it's a childhood dream for me to get on the subway and do a show every night on 43rd street. >> it's a question we ask a lot of tv and film actors when they go to the stage, but what is that difference for you? obviously you've got the immediate reaction from the audience, but at the same time
9:16 am
you're doing it eight nights a week and have to keep it fresh. >> yeah, it's a different muscle as an actor that you use than when you're doing television or film. and it requires a lot of discipline, which i love. it sort of brings me back to the bare bones of why i do what i do and trying to challenge myself as an actor and make sure i never get too comfortable doing, you know, one thing or the other. and they're all challenging in their own way. but, you know, there's nothing like that live energy. once you hear that audience, 300 people milling about waiting to see what you have to show them for the night, your energy and your heartbeat can't help but start lifting off. >> well, you also have just completed a production, a film with your husband. >> yeah. >> and i understand there was a certain sex scene in there that you had to warn the family about, right? what was the reaction? >> they were pretty great about it. this is our second feature film that we've done together, my husband and i, that he wrote and directed and i starred in and
9:17 am
produced. we do -- the scene opens with a very intimate scene between the two of them so we did have to warn a few of our family members. his mother, who is very loving and supportive, asked very nicely, ryan, did you make a porno? and he said, no, mom, i didn't. it's not that bad, i promise. they were wonderful and supportive. >> but at least it's with your spouse, right? >> not some weird guy you just met. >> we premiered at the film festival here in new york and it was completely shot in new york city. so we're committed to being new yorkers. >> we love to hear that. glad to hear that. >> you've got to tell us about this tweet -- i guess it was on instagr instagram, the sisterhood of the traveling bands. we know the script may be in the works. what's the story here? >> the story here is just that
9:18 am
we were having brunch. >> you know why i'm asking, america. >> we love each other. i mean it's out there that the script is being written for a third film, which is based on a fifth book that the author put out, which picks up ten years after the last time you saw the girls. so they're about 28, 29, which is around the age. i think that's a who knows, we'll see. >> one of the best places to dine in new york, we'll give you all of the new york secrets, where willie hangs, you live in new york near us. >> but in the meantime -- >> we can't ever go too long without seeing each other because we love each other. >> it is a sisterhood. >> america, so great to have you here. >> thanks, america. coming up next, two high school sweethearts reunited after 20 years. that's the premise of the new romantic drama, "the best of
