“You’re making a huge mistake because you’re threatening a nurse.”

Alex Wubbels, the head nurse at the University of Utah Hospital’s burn unit, was arrested for refusing to draw blood from an unconscious patient.   She was absolutely correct, since it was against hospital policy, and constitutional law, to do so.

ZDoggMD dedicated an episode of his Facebook Live show, Incident Report, highlighting the travesty:

“Sir, you’re making a huge mistake because you’re threatening a nurse,” said the nurse’s supervisor.  With the national attention this story is getting, hopefully those who consider threatening health care workers will think twice before doing so.
