SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Administrators from the University of Utah Hospital apologized to nurse Wubbels and addressed some policy changes Monday.

The CEO, Chief Nursing Officer, Medical Director at the Burn Center, and the chief of University of Utah Public Safety came together for a press conference addressing the media.
Margaret Pearce, Chief of Nursing Officer said nurse Wubbels did everything she was supposed to do and a change of policy was immediately enforced after the incident.
Pearce said the new policy makes it so nurses will no longer interact with law enforcement.
Hospital officials said they were outraged and took action after learning what happened to Nurse Wubbels on July 26th.
