Breaking News: Nebraska AG Files Charges on Late-Term Abortionist's Nurse
Leslie Reed writes in the Omaha World-Herald about one example of those hopes being realized in a very relevant way:
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has filed medical disciplinary charges against a registered nurse employed by the Bellevue abortion clinic run by Dr. LeRoy Carhart.
The petition accuses Lindsey Creekmore, the sole registered nurse employed at the clinic since April 30, 2011, of administering incorrect intravenous dosages of sedatives and a labor-inducing drug to 11 patients between January 2011 and March 2012...
The complaint also alleges that the clinic did not routinely staff its recovery room with licensed medical staff, in violation of a rule that prohibits a registered nurse from delegating complex nursing care to unlicensed staff.
The charges are scheduled for an Aug. 5th disciplinary hearing before the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Division.
“Clinic records show a significant pattern of substandard care practices that, in any surgical center, would endanger the health and safety of the public,” said Bruning. “We are seeking license revocation.”
Nebraskans (or anyone else, for that matter), if you'd like to thank Attorney General Bruning for taking this action, give his office a call at (402) 471-2682. We already did.
