    No matter what one's opinions on abortion or birth control I think we can all agree on a few things here...

    • Performing a non-emergency medical procedure without the (conscious competent) patient's permission is beyond the Pale.
    • Lying about it is an indefensible breach of professional ethics.
    • If Nurse Olona did this so often that staff "joked" (her words) about it the clinic was aware of a pattern of unprofessional behavior and did nothing to prevent it.
    • Nursie is about to lose her job.
    • And probably her license.
    • The clinic and its parent corporation are going to be taken to the cleaners.
    • If there's any evidence that they knew and did nothing they are going to be getting it badly from the State Medical Review Board.
    • The plaintiff's lawyer has a huge smile on his face and is probably dangerously sexually aroused.

    Question for the ladies:

    If your health care provider did this to you would you first
    • Demand to see the clinic's medical director?
    • Call an attorney?
    • Beat the technicolor hell out of the nurse practitioner?

    Wow... Thats the lamest thing Ive heard in a while.

    Sad part is the nurse probably thinks she isn't doing anything wrong.


    She thinks she is doing something legally wrong, but not morally wrong.
