nurse dodges bullet

Think you have a hard job as a nurse? On Chicago's south side, where the murder rate is out of control, home health nurses  have you beat.  Due to the danger of the neighborhood, they have to be accompanied by an armed guard as they go to care for their patients.  The armed guard is often a retired police officer.  They travel in a car together with a police radio.  If there is trouble in a particular area they either reroute or may decide not to go at all.

I wouldn't have the guts that they have.  Read their story here.
