In The Line Of Duty
Gail was stabbed by the son of a patient who was having surgery that morning. In all, this man stabbed five people and two of them died. The other fatal casualty was a man waiting to take his son home.
You can read the full story here.
When I think about nurses being in danger of violence at work, I don't think of ambulatory surgery centers as being a place of risk. This is a good reminder that anything can happen any time.
My heart goes out to the family of this nurse, Gail Sandidge, who I know are still trying to recovery from this tragedy.
