fit to require at least some reeducation of Ms Vaught!

It is likely that in Texas she'd never practice with an unencumbered license again. Hindight being 20-20... I wonder if Vandy has a protocol to screen for impairment with a mistake of this magnitude.

RaDonda Vaught made at least 10 mistakes in fatal Vanderbilt medication error, prosecutors say

This article outlines details of the prosecution's case. I am curious as to how the defense plans to pin this on the hospital? 

I still can't fathom why the Tennessee BON didn't see fit to require at least some reeducation of Ms Vaught!

I had a hard time counting the ten. We’re you able to? Thanks

That certainly is one thing that boggles the mind.

But, you know, when you have a NM that advises no need to document the actual medication administration and states that a magic machine will take care of it for you, all bets are clearly already off {not to mention the incident itself}

@Wuzzie can more thoroughly delineate for you.

Leadership coverups from the very beginning

I’m in Texas as well. I too feel there would be stipulations on the license just from seeing how other situations have been handled throughout my years..

The cover up should be addressed in a separate investigation

SERIOUSLY! CMS did nothing! Time after time they say they will strip hospitals of their Medicare benefits and to my knowledge they never have. Their words aren’t even threatening anymore. Leadership broke many laws. That should be another indictment.

Hopefully the secret Vanderbilt correction plan will be subpoenaed in the trial.

There are actually 12. I can list them if you'd like.

It would probably be a great time to apply at that hospital. Probably a lot of vacancies now.

Related to the thread at hand: I'm so incredibly sad regarding this. Ranging from the loss of life, to a fellow nurse being charged, to the nurse at hand being so incredibly negligent with medication administration , to other nurses attacking her. This whole thing is incredible and setting a new precedent. Not entirely sure which , but a new precedent nonetheless.

I also think the public is watching how nurses react to this.
