Although the Police have claimed to make changes to their policies, Utah Hospital made sure to work on theirs almost immediately. Interim Chief Crabtree reportedly addressed the hospital staff, “There is absolutely no tolerance for that kind of behavior in our hospital. To our nurses and staff, this will not happen again. And to that end, we are changing and have changed our interface protocols with our law enforcement. A move that I first set in motion within hours of the event with my team has made changes that we have actually implemented over the last several weeks. Our care nurses and staff will not be the first point of contact with law enforcement.”

According to the Chief Nursing Officer of University Hospital, Margaret Pearce, she says “I need to make sure this never, ever, ever happens to another one of our care providers again.” Their new policy states that from now on, the nursing staff will not deal with law enforcement directly, rather, it will be the health supervisors who will be the first in line to talk to them.
