treated. I am sure their care was interrupted. A formal apology
needs to be given as well to all for his ridiculous behavior.
S. Michael Tessandori As a fellow Peace Ofﬁcer I would
hope this man is held accountable for his actions. And any
competent law enforcement ofﬁcer knows ﬁrsthand the layers

Denise Showalter Martin Nurses get attacked by patients
routinely, but for an ofﬁcer to abuse his position to remove her
from her critical patients and then assault her for simply doing her
job is unthinkable. An apology is a start, but something pretty big
and real (besides talk) needs to happen.
Jenna Wafer Manson The respect and support for nurses
is amazing! I have seen this posted on many different sites and
have scrolled through comments ... I have yet to see negative comments toward the nurse!! We as nurses are loved and
Pamela Cheshire Duncan Criminal ... this nurse should be
commended for her patient advocacy. Thanks AACN for your
support, voice, and inﬂuence.
Jenn Rad What the hell is wrong with people these days.
That ofﬁcer has the biggest inﬂated ego to think he can just
present himself in the manner he did.
Kenny Shanahan Really glad to see AACN using its collective
voice. This organization in my opinion needs to use their powerful
voice and collective power of their membership more often.
Gary Kevorkian Pardon the pun, but this made my blood

gh acuity, progressive, and
