The American Nurses Association (ANA) is gratified that justice ultimately prevailed in the ‘Winkler County’ case involving two west Texas nurses who filed a complaint against physician Rolando Arafiles citing unsafe practices.  On Monday, Nov. 7, Arafiles plead guilty and was sentenced to 60 days in jail and five years probation.  In addition, he must pay a $5,000 fine and surrender his medical license.  Earlier this year, the Winkler County sheriff, county attorney and hospital administrator received jail sentences for their roles in trying to silence two nurses who complained to the Texas Medical Board about Arafiles.
