FORCING IN DOWN

I have been trying to read a Virginia Blog every week – docwatch – today, the author reports about a south west Virginia nurse who recently lost her license (in June) when she forced liquids into a nursing home resident, while restraining the resident – the result, the resident started vomiting and had to be taken to the E.R. at Carillion Giles Memorial Hospital. Sylvester resigned before she was fired. Her license was revoked two years later – WHAT, IT TOOK THAT LONG?
