Utah Officer Suspended Over Nurse Arrest At Utah Hospital


After a nurse was manhandled and arrested by police as she was protecting the legal rights of a patient, has now imposed new restrictions on law enforcement.  Officers are now barred from entering patient care areas and from having any direct contact with nurses.

This all comes after the arrest of burn unit nurse Alex Wubbels on July 26th when she, according to  hospital policy and the law, refused to allow a Salt Lake City police officer take a blood sample from an unconscious patient.

“This will not happen again,” interim chief executive of the hospital Gordon Crabtree said, praising Wubbels for “putting her own safety at risk” to “protect the rights of patients.”
