    When Police and Nurses Disagree Over Blood Draw Consent - Know What to Do

    Patients with DUI's will lawyer up and try to defend themselves using all kinds of legal arguments. A vindictive person could even file a report with the BON citing the idea that a procedure was performed on them without their expressed consent. I...
