turning the monitors off that are not in use, which is what it sounds like from the article

How are you getting this? This isn't at all what the article suggests.

You're correct, it doesn't specify whether the recovery bays were empty or not.

Obviously, that's an important differentiation. If he was doing this in occupied bays, that is beyond reason.

I hope he gets a brain scan, maybe something is physically wrong with him.

Unfortunately given the state of our country these days, "outrage fatigue" is more prevalent than "alarm fatigue"...

Agreed.

"I think it will be easy to show there was no intent involved," he told CBS4.

Way to take responsibility.

What a tool. I wanted to use another word, but I'd get in trouble.

I hope he gets jail time.

ZDoggMD posted his reaction to this on youtube. I don't think we can link, so just put "When Doctors Attack" into the search function.

Who cares what alarms were beeping?

Who cares what a great guy he was? Or if he had a temper issue?

Who cares whether he had "intent?"

He.still.strangled.a.nurse.

If he came across a woman in the mall and did the same, there would be more outrage.

Poor guy just snapped, that's all. What about the poor nurse?

I read this yesterday and could not even believe what I was reading. First was that he was so blasé about it. Second, he was "escorted off the property"...unless he was escorted by the police then shame on that hospital.

I could not care less if the guy "snapped". He strangled a nurse. Wrapped his hands around her neck and squeezed. He should be charged with attempted murder. I don't care if he's the resident sandman, another nurse, or hospital CEO, he'd have been laid out like a throw rug.

I shudder to think how this may have ended had there not been another person there.

Someone who purports to be a nurse wrote the following comments on CBS Denver Facebook page:

I worked with Dr. Ryan he is the nicest person I've ever known. She must have pushed his buttons then he snapped!!! I'm an OR nurse and I know she is ratchet.

It seems like the nurse was telling a physician what to do. She was out of line. I worked with Dr Ryan and he was excellent at his job.

I am an RN who worked with Dr. Ryan. He has the right (to turn off alarms). A nurse should never question a physician. The anesthesiologists stay with the patients until they are stable.

Nothing like blaming the victim!

He will lawyer up and they will plead down whatever the criminal charge ends up being to something with probation.

Hopefully, the nurse has a lawyer and she is already putting in the paper work for a civil suit. "I have no intent to get money from you for choking me, I'm just suing your crazy ass. See how that works?"
