Utah Nurse Arrested And Dragged Out Of Hospital For Doing Her Job [WATCH]
This is actually quite frightening. Nurse Alex Wubbels was handcuffed and physically removed from University Hospital for doing her job. The footage captures her terror and confusion.
Alex Wubbles was simply explaining that she was unable to draw blood from a particular patient due to the laws in place. So, Detective Jeff Payne decided to take matters into his own hands and arrest her.
As you can tell by the footage, Wubbles is clearly on the right side of the law. She even has a copy of the policy in her hand. The hospital policy states:
'blood cannot be drawn from an unconscious patient unless they have been arrested, a warrant for the procedure is granted, or the patient consents.'
None of those conditions were met. Meaning that it would have been illegal for the nurse, or anyone, to draw blood from that patient.
Not sure why or how this situation escalated. The laws are quite simple and stated right there in front of the officer. In writing. How scary is it that YOU could be arrested for doing your job?
