Abortion Nurse’s Hearing Delayed After New Complaints Against Carhart Filed in 3 States

Lincoln, NE – A disciplinary hearing set to begin today in Nebraska for abortion nurse Lindsey Creekmore, who works for late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, has been delayed a week after Operation Rescue filed a new round of complaints against her boss in Nebraska, Indiana, and Maryland.

Whether the complaints prompted the delay in the Creekmore disciplinary case is unknown.

The complaints were filed after a sixth woman in 23 months suffered a severe medical emergency on March 4, 2014, which resulted in the patient requiring emergency surgery to save her life.

“Enough is enough! We have watched as one Carhart patient after another has been hospitalized — and some have died — while medical boards stand idly by. Not only are we trying to save the lives of babies from abortion, many of which are viable and healthy, but we are also urgently attempting to save women from serious injury or death by reporting Carhart’s casualties to the authorities,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

This is the second delay in Creekmore’s case, which has been rescheduled for July 30 through August 1, 2014, in Room 36 of the Lancaster County District Court in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Creekmore is a registered nurse who originally worked for the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller is Wichita, Kansas, then followed Carhart to his Bellevue, Nebraska, clinic after Tiller’s abortion business closed in 2009.

In May, 2013, Attorney General Jon Bruning filed a disciplinary petition listing nine causes of action against Creekmore wherein he accused her of incompetence and negligence for administering incorrect intravenous dosages of sedatives and a labor-inducing drug to 11 patients between January 2011 and March 2012.

The complaint also alleges that Carhart’s Bellevue abortion clinic did not provide proper staffing for women in recovery. Nebraska law states that registered nurses cannot delegate complex nursing tasks to unlicensed workers, a law that Creekmore routinely violated, according to Bruning’s petition.

Her behavior violates the scope of practice in that she acted outside the boundaries of her profession, a charge that constitutes unprofessional conduct.

“Clinic records show a significant pattern of substandard care practices that, in any surgical center, would endanger the health and safety of the public,” Bruning said in a press release issued last year announcing the case against Creekmore. “We are seeking license revocation.”

Despite the danger Bruning says Creekmore poses, she continues to work at Carhart’s run-down Nebraska Abortion and Contraception Clinic in Bellevue, Nebraska, while she awaits license revocation proceedings.

“We have been puzzled as to why Attorney General Bruning charged Creekmore for substandard care practices that endanger the public safety when it is Carhart that owns and operates the clinic and is the primary person responsible for the practices there,” said Newman.

In 2009, Operation Rescue met with Bruning and asked for an investigation into Carhart’s shoddy practices after several former Carhart employees came forward and provided sworn affidavits that detailed shoddy practices at Carhart’s Nebraska abortion clinic. That investigation was quietly closed without action, something that has troubled Operation Rescue ever since.

“Certainly if Creekmore faces license revocation, Carhart deserves it more,” said Newman. “Every time Carhart evades discipline, as he did in the deaths of two patients, Christin Gilbert and Jennifer Morbelli, it only ensures that more women will suffer injury or death at his hands. This time, we hope that both Creekmore and Carhart will be held accountable for their actions and that they will both be forced out of the abortion business for good.”

    Dear Atty General Bruning,

    I am in agreement with Operation Rescue. If delay is to continue, Cahart’s “House of Horrors” should be closed until the hearing. He has already killed two woman. This is the real War Against Woman. Why is it when it comes to killing woman & children the action is so slow when two previous workers have signed sworn affidavits. Any delay while clinic remains open, puts more woman in danger of severe injury & death! Atty Gen Bruning, do you have a birthday to celebrate every year. I’m sure you do. Everyone allowed to be born (WITHOUT ARTIFICIAL INTERFERANCE after life begins at CONCEPTION according to every science and medical book) has a BIRTH DAY & celebrates one every year. If this man (no Dr. would kill woman & children who all deserve to have a BIRTH DAY & celebrate it every year), took over George Tiller, “the baby killer” as he was known, Cahart then operates a “house of horrors” and possibly infanticide as well. Has anybody from the State gone in unannounced to see how shoddy it is? Doubt it, but they check out restaurants, daycare centers & even elevators for licensing. Something is VERY WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE. Please close down this shoddy so-called “clinic” & go in with a Search Warrant & take a look around. I’m sure you won’t like what you find there!

    Until Roe v. Wade is overturned, we will see less & less respect for human life and other evils will prevail. If there is not peace for women, men & children who certainly deserve better than abortion & death, with many women suffering after abortion, not only physically but psychologically as well along with men who regret lost fatherhood, we can expect this evil of the Culture of Death to beget more evil. If you don’t do the right thing & shut down this place, you are complicit in the awful evil of injuries, death of mothers, and the excruciating suffering the unborn child will experience. Think of how you will feel on your deathbed (when you are old and close to experiencing natural death) for letting this go on. How will you explain your indifference to other people’s pain & death that you could have prevented to God? There is no explanation! Please do what is right NOW rather than later. I am praying for you.

    Sincerely,
    Sheila Taylor

    Interesting that Jon Bruning is dragging his feet on this disciplinary action and has declined to investigate Carhart’s clinic in Bellevue. Did you know that he is running for governor of Nebraska and claims that he is pro-life? Go to his website, Jonbruning.com/Issues Protect Life and Religious Liberty. Also he has a TV campaign ad where he claims he is pro-life. Sounds like he is only selectively Pro-life!

    As a medic that has been inside the Germantown Clinic, I can only imagine what this one looks like inside just by looking at the outside.
