A nurse was in the middle of a minor surgery last Wednesday or Thursday, when she was called out of it to be laid-off. The patient was not effected by the interruption, it seems, and there is no word on what surgery was being performed. This is a violation of medical protocol, however, as it could very well have lead to complications in the surgery among other things.
The Madison, Wisconsin based Dean Health System announced that it planned to “immediately lay off 90 employees.”
The individual who conducted the lay-off is an otherwise good employee with more than 30 years of nursing experience who is very upset and remorseful over the decision that she made to interrupt the procedure.
