    This all so sad for both families. I cannot understand why this nurse was thrown under the bus, 27 years is a long history of nursing experience and loyalty to this hospital. The hospital had every right to discipline her and so did the BON, but the harshness that was shown to her will cause other nurses to be afraid to report their mistakes and try to cover them up. We were all taught to self report any errors and that it would not cause us to be fired, disciplined or educated but not fired. Each and every nurse no matter what type of nursing they do are having to take care of increasingly larger amount of patients and mistakes are almost inevitable. Seems the hospitals and any other medical facility are deciding to always discard the nurse because at this time in many areas there are 50 more waiting for a job. All of this could have been handled in a better way. So sad.
