United States detective arrest nurse for refusing to give patient's blood

04 September 2017

A Salt Lake City police officer forcibly arrested a Utah nurse after she refused to provide a blood sample from an unconscious patient, The Associated Press reports.

In spite of that, Salt Lake police detective Jeff Payne charged at her, roughly grabbed her, and arrested her.

Wubbels and her attorney chose to release footage of the arrest now because after meeting with the city and with police they believed it was necessary to prevent another incident. The supervisor then told the officer he was "making a huge mistake".

A spokeswoman for hospital said the nurse was detained for around 20 minutes in a police vehicle before being released after administrative staff intervened. Even so, an officer with the Salt Lake City Police showed up asking for his blood.

Microsoft reveals release date for Windows Mixed Reality headsets
Among the few it mentioned, Windows Story Remix will allow users automatically turn a collage of images into a cohesive narrative. With a number of headsets due to be released in the later half of 2017, the software update will ensure the hardware is operable.

Salt Lake Police Chief Mike Brown said his department has met with management of the university hospital, the nursing department and the university police.

"I felt obligated to release it on behalf of anyone that's ever gone through something like this" but didn't have evidence or video, Wubbels told CNN.

"I am sad at the rift this has caused between law enforcement and the nurses we work so closely with".

Wubbels has not pressed any charges and is not expected to.

Colts acquire QB Brissett from Patriots for WR Dorsett
Dorsett played in Indianapolis' middle two preseason games, tallying five receptions for 75 yards. Brissett completed 34-of-55 passes for 400 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

"You can't just take blood if you don't have a legitimate concern for something to be tested", Wubbels said. "The only job I have as a nurse is to keep my patients safe".

He wanted a blood sample from an unconscious patient.

"As the videos and news accounts make clear, there is no excuse for this assault or her arrest, which sends a chilling message about the safety of nurses and the rights of patients", Jean Ross, co-president of the union, said in a release. A 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling states a blood sample can not be taken without patient consent or a warrant. Wubbels says she thinks they're honest. "Clearly this is an issue that is bigger than just me". She says she's accepted their apologies. Payne had been removed from blood-draw duties but remained in his role as a detective in the investigations unit during an internal investigation. The arresting officer, detective Jeff Payne, and an unidentified officer have been placed administrative leave for the duration of the probe.

"This morning, I received a call from the Mayor of Salt Lake City and the Chief of Police".
