Salem nurse who mocked COVID-19 rules to stop practicing

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A nurse at Salem Health who on social media flouted Oregon’s COVID-19 restrictions last month has agreed to stop working for the healthcare provider. KOIN-TV reports Ashley Grames received an Interim Consent Order for her departure effective Dec. 8, according to state records. Interim Orders by Consent are not considered discipline and are binding documents signed voluntarily by both parties. The order remains in effect until the Board votes to vacate it. On Nov. 27, Grames posted a video on TikTok and Facebook saying she still travels often, rarely wears a mask and lets her kids have play dates. Salem Health placed Grames on administrative leave during an investigation before the parties signed the order.
