Nurse fired after online comments about fatality, August 01, 2012, #yuma #arizona #nurseup #nursefriendly

Nurse fired after online comments about fatality, August 01, 2012:"A nurse's social media comment blaming the victim of a fatal collision between an ambulance and motorcycle ignited a storm of online anger that led to her dismissal Tuesday from Yuma's hospital.

Nurse Angela Gusta commented on YumaSun.com that the deceased, Todd McIntire, was at fault when his motorcycle struck an ambulance making a U-turn Sunday on Highway 95.

Officials with Yuma Regional Medical Center, responding to numerous furious online responses, announced Tuesday via its own social media comment that Gusta's contract with the hospital had been terminated."
