    A Veterans Affairs nurse who spent 28 years at the embattled agency's facility in Albany, N.Y., says when she came forward to report abuse including stolen drugs and mistreatment of patients, her supervisors turned on her instead of trying to fix things.

Now she has been banished to an office cubicle, stripped of her nursing duties and supervisory role and faces a 30-day...

A single toilet was used by hundreds of people. Yet somehow she and the nurses persevered. They maintained strict military order among themselves, always wearing their uniforms and...

    Today the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a Catholic nurse who was forced by a New York hospital to participate in an abortion does not have the right to sue her employer. Administrators at Mt. Sinai Hospital had threatened Catherine DeCarlo with disciplinary measures in May 2009 if she did not honor a last-minute summons to assist in a scheduled late-term abortion. The hospital insisted on her participation in the procedure on the grounds that it was an “emergency.” Lawyers for DeCarlo, however, have pointed out that the procedure was not classified by the hospital as an emergency,...

    A Minnesota judge ruled Tuesday that the case against a former nurse who allegedly sought out depressed people in Internet chat rooms and encouraged them to kill themselves won't be dismissed on free speech grounds. William Melchert-Dinkel, 48, of Faribault, is charged with two counts of aiding suicide in the deaths of an English man and a Canadian woman. His attorney had asked that the case be dismissed, saying Melchert-Dinkel's conversations involved protected speech. Rice County District Judge Thomas Neuville disagreed in a 21-page ruling, saying speech that aids the suicide of another is not protected by the First Amendment....

    .... August 14, 1945 in New York City was a magical moment - a confluence of history, a place, and everyday people. Soldiers were returning home from an intense four years of fighting when President Truman announced Victory in Japan (VJ Day) - the end of the American involvement in World War II. In Times Square, the sailors paraded in joy for they had won! On the street, civilians came out to the streets from their shops, the hospitals, to savor this moment of victory. Then a sailor, caught up in the passion, kissed a surprised young nurse, who was...

    PLANTATION — He kissed and told. She kissed and said it was him. Then she wasn't sure. They drifted apart. Over the years, the memory of a shared national moment bound them. And now she is gone. Edith Shain, 91, the nurse in the iconic "kissing sailor" photograph, the Times Square clinch marking the end of World War II, died Sunday at her home in Los Angeles. Carl Muscarello, 83, a retired New York police detective who lives in Plantation, says he remembers that day well, and not just for its historic significance.

    A King County jury on Wednesday ruled that a nurse did not violate the constitutional and legal rights of a Seattle woman who was barred from her domestic partner's hospital room in the hours before the woman died. Sharon Reed believed nurse Karen Hulley pushed her from the room at the University of Washington Medical Center in September 2005 because Hulley was opposed to her sexual orientation, according to Reed's lawyer. But jurors on Wednesday deliberated only about 40 minutes before voting 10-2 to dismiss Reed's suit, which sought $600,000 in damages. In May 2006, Reed sued Hulley, AMN Healthcare,...

    Police said today they have submitted the case of a Minnesota nurse suspected of urging people via the Internet to commit suicide to the Rice County attorney's office for consideration of charges. William Melchert-Dinkel, 47, pretended to be a young female nurse and told people online that his professional experience gave him "expert knowledge into the most effective ways of killing yourself," according to an order from the Minnesota Board of Nursing revoking his practical nurse license and made public in October. An 18-year-old Canadian woman took her life after communicating online with Melchert-Dinkel, and a 32-year-old Englishman also committed...
