Doctors bully nurses: Hospital mistreatment is a danger to patient health.
The family of a year-old woman in Illinois is suing a nursing home where she resided after a video posted to social media in December showed two staffers taunting her with a hospital gown. Margaret Collins was a patient at the Abington of Glenview, located about 20 miles northwest of Chicago, when certified nursing assistant Jamie Montesa posted a video to Snapchat showing fellow certified nursing assistant Brayan Cortez teasing the year-old woman, police say.

Years before Dr.
