The Nurse Who Helped Too Much, Amy Tenderich, DiabetesMine #nurseup #AmandaTrujillo #nursefriendly:”It might be hard to believe in this day and age of “participatory medicine” and empowered patients — or in any day and age, really — but the fact is that an Arizona-based nurse was fired from her job recently for simply providing a patient too much information on his treatment options. The nurse’s name is Amanda Trujillo, a single mother living in Phoenix, and licensed nurse in Arizona since 2006. She specializes in cardiology, geriatrics, and end of life/palliative care. The sin she supposedly committed was setting up a consultation on hospice care for a patient suffering from end-stage liver disease, who was scheduled for surgery. This “interference” angered the patient’s physician, who then had Amanda fired and reported her to the Arizona State Board of Nursing, where she is now in danger of losing her nursing license. Fellow health care professionals and patient advocates are flooding the blogosphere in support of her cause!”
