Nurse Takes Contraception Into Her Own Hands
Nurse Removes IUD Without Permission Then Lectures The Patient Against Using IUDs for Religious Reasons.
Okay, let me sum this up for anyone confused.
"As that happened, Defendant Olona stated, 'Uh oh, I accidentally pulled out your IUD. I gently tugged and out it came.' She then explained, 'I cut the string than went back and gently pulled and out it came. It must have not been in properly.'
"Olona then stated, 'having the IUD come out was a good thing.' She asked (the plaintiff) if she wanted to hear her 'take' on the situation. Without receiving a response, Defendant Olona stated, 'I personally do not like IUDs. I feel they are a type of abortion. I don't know how you feel about abortion, but I am against them. What the IUD does is take the fertilized egg and pushes it out of the uterus.'
"Defendant Olona told (the plaintiff) that is was better that she did not have the IUD because she could now use a "non-abortion" form of contraception. Defendant Olona suggested the deprovera (depo) [sic] shot or the pill, and made clear that she would not insert a new IUD."
1. Woman comes in complaining that the strings on her IUD (intrauterine birth-control device) are too long and requests they be trimmed down a bit.
2. A nurse comes in and attempts to do this and, allegedly, accidentally removes the IUD.
3. The nurse then gives an unwanted speech to the patient on the moral discrepancies of using an IUD.
4. Nurse then refuses to either reinstall or replace the IUD as that is against her belief system.
Anyone else see a problem with this picture?
