Medical Ethics and Me, Thursday, January 26, 2012 #NurseUp:”Amanda Trujillo is a transplant nurse and patient advocate in Phoenix, Arizona. That is, she was.
Trujillo was fired in Spring 2011, lost her license, and cannot at present hold another nursing position in Arizona. And it seems that she was fired for being a transplant nurse advocating for a dying patient. Calling it ironic doesn’t do it justice.
Trujillo’s advocacy was either in defiance of, or at least without regard for, a transplant physician who had other plans for the patient that involved surgery and certain realities of post-surgical care about which the patient was not aware. Trujillo admits that the physician’s concerns were not hers, and she clearly has strong feelings about how unaddressed revenue pressures can compromise institutional ethics and practices. What also is clear is that the best interests of the patient were Trujillo’s priority. Which is pretty much what I want in a nurse.”
