Hospital nurse arrested after refusing illegal blood draw order
quote:

A nurse says she was assaulted and illegally arrested by a Salt Lake City police detective for following a hospital policy that does not allow blood draws from unconscious patients.

Footage from University Hospital and officer body cameras shows Detective Jeff Payne and nurse Alex Wubbels in a standoff over whether the policeman should be allowed to get a blood sample from a patient who had been injured in a July 26 collision in northern Utah that left another driver dead.

Wubbels says blood cannot be taken from an unconscious patient unless the patient is under arrest, unless there is a warrant allowing the draw or unless the patient consents. The detective acknowledges in the footage that none of those requirements is in place, but he insists that he has the authority to obtain the draw, according to the footage.

At one point, Payne threatens to take Wubbels to jail if he doesn’t get the sample, and he accuses her of interfering with a criminal case.

“I either go away with blood in vials or body in tow,” Payne says.

After Wubbels consults with several hospital officials and repeats the policy, Payne tells her she is under arrest and grabs her, pulling her arms behind her back and handcuffing her. The footage shows the detective dragging Wubbels out of the hospital and putting her inside a patrol car as she screams, “Help! Help! Somebody help me! Stop! Stop! I did nothing wrong!”

Could the hospital have a claim too? Lost manpower, etc?

I imagine this case will be a gold mine for the lawyers.

The hospital administration should have stepped up and defended her.

Trashy people have ruined the chances of people actually believing that this is true and intervening

Watch the video. Hospital admin told the cop he's making a big mistake and then he freaked out. They also said admin was on it's way.

A crash where one is seriously injured and another dead.

Most states have mandatory blood draws in those types of crashes.

And disrespecting an officer. I hope this thug got ruffed up for resisting before they arrested her criminal ass.

OP should change title, as far as I can tell it wasn't illegal it was just against Hospital policy. Hospital policy doesn't Trump the law,so while it's dumb to arrest the nurse I could totally see obstruction of justice.
