Cherilyn Lee, a registered nurse who Michael Jackson allegedly begged to supply him with the dangerous drug Diprivan, was on "Good Morning America" -- saying she warned him about the medicine, telling him "you might not wake up the next morning."

She WAS a licensed nurse...not after this nonsense. There are serious laws in affect to protect patient privacy and by going to the media, she has broken all of these laws and thereby will definitely lose her license. Hope she's getting paid big bucks for spilling her guts on national television because she will have a very difficult time finding a job again. What an idiot.

Listen....she was not the one who gave him any drugs and no she couldnt tell anyone about this....she did the right thing by letting him no what the effecfts were..... she was not his enabler...those doctors who abuse thier practices need to be in jail. as far as I am concern she did what was right.

What kind of wacko "nurse" is this, she is an embarressment to our profession, talking on tv about treatments that she as a nusre is not qualified to prescribe. And then states she works in emergency medicine, and doesn't know what Diprivan is??? Please, it is a frequently used medicine in critical care and emergency room settings. She needs to have her license restricted for practicing medicine without a license!!!

WHY DON'T PEOPLE JUST TAKE NUROFEN PLUS?

IT'S ALL YOU NEED, YOU DON'T NEED VERY SERIOUS DRUGS THAT MICHAEL JACKSON TOOK....THESE DRUGS ONLY BELONG IN A CONTROLLED HOSPITAL SETTING WITH DOCTORS THAT KNOW WHAT THEIR DOING.

I too have complained to the California Nurses' Association about Cherilyn Lee's complete lack of professionalism. I am a registered nurse, and I find it absolutely deplorable that Ms. Lee feels the need to jump on the "15 Minutes Of Fame" bandwagon at the expense of the late Mr. Jackson and his family. As a registered nurse, Ms. Lee needs to resist her attention seeking urges. She instead, needs to demonstrate complete and total discretion when it comes to Mr. Jackson's right to privacy. The laws of "HIPPA" require it, and common decency demands it. Cherilyn Lee is a disgrace and an embarrassment to nurses everywhere. She should be severely disciplined by her licensing body. She should be ASHAMED.
