  1. Thanks for sharing this case about Amanda Trujillo. Patient advocacy is never a crime,it is actually a responsibility of every nurses even a right. It is also our right to be heard specially if our fellow nurse is threatened to be suspended of her licence. Here, it is not just a threat to her, but to all nurses out there.
