I think that would be different though wouldn't it? If a 16 year old came in and was pregnant by her 30 year old boyfriend, depending on the state, that WOULD have to be reported. Depending on the legal consenting age laws that is.
But I also know that in some states at least, if a minor is pregnant she doesn't need parental permission to be treated.
Many, many years ago, a distant relative of mine (also a nurse) was followed home by someone who had threatened her on more than one occasion at work, and her employer knew about the situation.
He attempted to grab her from behind as she walked up her sidewalk to the front door, (he was already naked). She heard him, reached into her lab coat pocket, grabbed her .38, swung her arm around her shoulder & fired. Her had just gotten his arm up to reach for her & she hit him right in the neck. She never even looked back, she ran in the door & called 911.
The ******* was dead when the police arrived.
Nurse with a carry permit & shooting skills=1
She's still hard of hearing in her left ear, but that's a small price to pay.......
She could have been the one in the coffin.
We had an elderly, terminal woman in a room right next to the nurses station. One night we heard 2 distinct voices, it was around 3am & we all thought it was odd for a visitor to come at that hour. I went in to see what was going on & she was alone in her room.
When I asked her about the voices she said "oh, that was my husband, he just dropped by to see me. She passed the next night. I was breaking her chart down & something on her H&P caught my eye.
Her husband had been dead for 20 years.
