The only thing I can come up with is that she had to make it appear that the needle/syringe was still filled and not "missing". But then if RNs lost their jobs over this...hmmmm?
I emailed Inside Edition because it was crap that they headlined the story on air and on their site that she was a "Nurse"...why? Well it sells more "tickets" I guess. ARGH!
