    Doubt it would be better to do it to one who still had his arms, either
    Wow, thats a chilling story.
    I totally know how you feel -I'd have been tempted to do the same (toss him out the window -and probably with a rag stuffed in his mouth so he would keep quiet on the way down (don't want to disturb others who would be working in the building).
    I've never been to see the board (and hope I NEVER have to by force) -what an interesting and enlightning experience that must have been!

    It was a male nurse that was involved in this case. This happened way back in 1984. He did get his license revoked.

    I don't know if he was prosecuted any further or got sued in civil court, however. I just remember being so angry about it. And shocked.
