The Washington Post, September 3, 2017 article serves as our introduction and backdrop: The videotaped arrest of a nurse at a Salt Lake City hospital — after she told police, correctly, that they weren’t allowed to draw blood from an unconscious patient — has been roundly condemned by national nursing organizations, Utah officials and even the local police department.
The July 26 incident, captured by an officer’s body camera, was made public last week after the nurse came forward. Since then, several groups have echoed the nurse’s outrage, calling for greater consequences for the police detective in question and demanding increased awareness of patient-consent laws.
Richard Bays brings to our attention that there are many questions that need to be answered about medical informed consent and what does the law say about this subject that obviously the Salt Lake City police officer failed to recognize in this article.
