During this comedy of errors, Anne Mitchell and Vicki Galle have made us proud. When faced with difficult choices, they chose to do the right thing. They were aware that if discovered, they could lose their jobs. They still chose the morally correct course of action. That choice exacted a toll. They lost their jobs, and were prosecuted by bullies hiding behind badges. Ms. Mitchell and Galle sacrificed their careers and suffered criminal prosecution. They put their professional obligations to protect their patients first. They put the community interest and health ahead of their jobs.
What happened to them was wrong. Both suffered. They lost their jobs, endured pressure and public humiliation, and faced the prospect of losing their freedom. They lost much of their privacy after newspapers and professional journals discussed their case.
Their courage changed the world. Healthcare everywhere in America will be at least a little safer because of them. Whether employed in the healthcare arena or not, all have been inspired by Anne Mitchell and Vicki Galle. When we find ourselves making difficult decisions, we can comfort ourselves by remembering them. We can discuss these events with our children as they make choices and ask them to do "what Anne and Vicki would have done."
Law schools, medical schools, nursing schools and other professional training courses have a new topic to teach. Conferences and seminars will discuss this case. Education has a new subject. Anne Mitchell and Vicki Galle made all this possible by forging this path.
We cannot change the past. We can tell Anne Mitchell and Vicki Galle:
"We are grateful for your courage, your common sense, and your values. We applaud you and celebrate your example. We are proud to stand with you."
