I'm sure most of you remember the Winkler County Nurse fiasco. Well, it appears that the doctor involved in the case was arrested and charged with criminal retaliation and "misuse of official information," both felonies. The latter charge was the same one the nurses were charged with after reporting him to the Texas Medical Board.

Seems to me that the sheriff should also face charges for conducting a bogus investigation.
Kudos to these nurses!
What scares me is that he is still licensed and practicing. The TX BOM has not issued an emergency injunction suspending his license, despite many, many complaints about substandard care and a prior conviction by the Tx BOM.
What sickens me is that the Winkler County Hospital fired these 2 nurses that whistle blew the substandard care this MD was providing. Another example of nurses being expendable, and their employer not backing them.
