nurse will not be dishonorably discharged for refusing to force feed prisoner


http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/may/13/navy-will-not-punish-nurse-refusing-force-feed-guantanamo-prisoners

As a nurse veteran, this was an interesting article to read. Prisoners at Guantanamomo Bay have held hunger strikes for different reasons. I guess after a period of time, the military decided to force feed them.

They would be strapped into a chair and an NG tube would be inserted. Then they would be fed through the tube. Well, one nurse refused to do it. He faced discipline 8and a bad discharge, a loss of pension. He was no longer able to work as a nurse during the investigation. Those charges have been dropped. After all, how would it look if the navy dishonorably discharged a nurse for essentially torturing somebody.

I admire this nurses courage in a world gone crazy.

welcome to my world, won't you come in..

Go ahead. Click on the arrow. Its OK. You can trust me. You know that...OK did youdo it? Does it make the hair on the back of your neck stand up? 

Welcome to my world. At least once a shift someone is doing something similar to this. They are screaming so loud that it can be heard throughout the emergency department. Last
week it was someone who doesn't like white people screaming about their dislike, followed by yelling for their mother. Now mind you this is a grown adult.
