A Utah nurse who was arrested for refusing to let a police officer draw blood from an unconscious patient has said she is settling with Salt Lake City and the university that runs the hospital for $653,000. Ms Wubbel was following hospital policy when she told Mr Payne he needed a warrant or the consent of the patient to draw blood after a July 26 car crash. Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown has since apologised and fired Mr Payne after an internal investigation found he violated department policies. Chief Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was “deeply troubled” by Mr Payne’s conduct, which he said brought “significant disrepute” on the department. Lieutenant James Tracy, a police supervisor who ordered the arrest of the nurse, was demoted to officer and also is appealing.
