According to MSNBC, a manager at Dean's West Clinic in Madison, Wisconsin was apparently a little too eager to inform a nurse that she was being laid off. The manager called the nurse out of a surgery (described only as "minor") to tell her that she was being terminated, leaving the surgical room without a nurse--not surprisingly, a violation of medical protocol.
I'm assuming that the just-terminated nurse then had to return immediately to the surgery, which reminds me never to have a medical procedure at that clinic.
