I woke up this morning to a disturbing and saddening video of Salt Lake City Nurse, Alex Wubbels, being dragged out of her hospital and into a police car. Why was this Utah nurse arrested? What did she do? Her job.
In the below video, you can clearly see that Alex was politely explaining the hospital policy to the police officer. The police officer wanted a blood sample from the patient, and Alex explained to him that she could not do that because the patient was unconscious. According to that hospital’s policy, the police either needed a warrant, consent from the unconscious patient, or the patient needed to be under arrest before the blood sample could be drawn.
“I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do,” Alex said.
The officer pushed harder.
Alex’s supervisor on the phone then said, “Sir, you’re making a huge mistake because you’re threatening a nurse.”
A huge mistake indeed.
The officer then placed her under arrest and violently drug her out of the hospital. Please watch for yourself.
