Petitioning Utah Governor and 2 others

Justice for Alex Wubbels

Alex Wubbels is an ER nurse from University Hospital in SLC, Utah who was arrested for following hospital policy and looking out for the rights of her patient.  Let's get behind her for doing to right thing.

This petition is to raise awareness of the dangers of front line staff in healthcare. Alex was simply following protocol and protecting her patient. She was stuck in a rock and a hard place and protected her patient. It is a situation I'm sure myself and other RNs have found themselves in at some level and at some point in their career.  I can't speak for what the patient did before they got to me, I will treat them with respect and protect their rights until they give me reason not to (like put me in danger).

While I am never an advocate for putting someone's livelihood at risk without due process, I do think Officer Payne needs to have a formal written disciplinary action placed in his permanent file.  If it is found that it has been a trend of similar behaviors during his time on the force, then he should be stripped of his badge.  Additionally, I believe a public apology should be given by him to Alex.  

Alex, if you read this, I am a nurse just like you, and I have your back!
