April 9, 2013 (WPVI) — A local abortion clinic is under fire, facing allegations of unsafe and unsanitary conditions. A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what’s happening behind the closed doors. Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside.
Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, “It was just unsafe. I couldn’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was.”
Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary.
“He didn’t wear gloves,” said Werbrich.
Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, “They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile.”
The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean.
Werbrich said “It’s not washed down, it’s not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it.”
“They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS,” added Vasikonis.
Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.
Vasikonis said, “I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed.”
“Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it’s needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich.”
