How One Utah Nurse Arrest May Affect Hospitals Everywhere – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889
Nurses aren’t the only ones reacting to a recent video that surfaced of a Utah nurse’s arrest for simply doing her job.
In an incident that has shocked the nursing community and the rest of the country, the arrest of University of Utah Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels, RN, has changed hospital policies at her facility. The hospital’s CEO encourages other hospitals to follow suit.
“While Alex may say that she was simply ‘following hospital procedure’ or ‘just doing her job,’ we also recognize that she was placed in a very unfair and truly unwarranted position,” said Gordon Crabtree, CEO, University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics, during a press conference.
