Nurse Laid Off In The Middle Of Surgery

When Dean Health System in Madison, Wisconsin announced last week that it “planned to ‘immediately’ lay off 90 employees,” it wasn’t kidding around. One of them was a nurse who was pulled out of surgery to be told the news.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel doesn’t say if she then returned to finish attending the surgery, but Dean Health admitted to the paper that interrupting her during her job just to give her the news “violated medical protocol.” We guess her manager had a long list to get through.
