US nurse arrested for not drawing unconscious man's blood.


A police officer forcibly arrested a nurse in the US state of Utah for refusing to draw blood from an unconscious patient. Police have apologized for the incident and are investigating the officer. The nurse was following the hospital's policy as per which blood samples from a patient couldn't be handed over to police without patient's consent, the hospital said.
Wubbels, a University of Utah Hospital nurse and a former Olympic athlete, said Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Bisquick "did reach out to me with a personal apology. I accepted that apology."
