Why Nurse Supervisors Should Be Marines

... because you never know when their skills will come in handy:
Witnesses told police that nurse (supervisor) Andy Hull, a 35-year-old former Marine, jumped in to disarm Lupienski when he pulled the gun out from under his gown and pointed it at another staff member. Hull was shot three times. He was being treated Wednesday in the hospital's intensive care unit for injuries that were described as serious but not life-threatening.
I can hear it now....

The Few. The Proud. The Nurses!

Kudos to him for the quick and brave response. I'm sure his training helped him. But, this reinforces the importance of screening and security in the would not guess by looking that a 85-y.o. NUTCASE loser would spring something like this. Wishes to Nurse Andy for a complete recovery, and give that man a raise !
