I live in Puerto Rico and I just heard on the news last night about a nurse who is being charged with manslaughter due to a medication error. I have read of several of these cases on the boards and I find this to be a very disturbing trend. Now we all know med errors are dangerous and need to be taken seriously but should one be deemed a murderer if it happens. In my opinion the answer is no. It should be dealt with by the board of regulations and punishment should be handled by them. Jail time should not be an option. I for one will stop doing patient care if this trend continues. We put our lives on the line for patients, we put our licenses on the line for patients and now the courts want to put us in jail? Not on your life will I put myself in that kind of risk. Any opinions?
