Is this nurse competent - if she/he told this pregnant woman that she's only having phantom labour, and given an antacid? Yet the woman (who happens to be in a jail)
is pregnant, and has a breech delivery, after being put into segregation. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/daily...171210759.html
Humane treatment and competent nursing staff are still required. What about the infant's needs and rights? Did this nurse act professionally, responsibly, competently?
And further into the article "Allan Manson, a law professor at Queen's University, told CBC News
that an inmate could possible find the Canadian government liable for failing to provide adequate protection and care for inmates according to its own laws"
There may be many problems with the jail system, but that does not excuse the nurse for being incompetent or inhumane.
