    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Check your policy to see if it covers criminal matters. Medical malpractice cases are always filed and tried in civil court, not criminal court, which is why this case is so sensational. I'm sure that all medical malpractice policies will cover you and pay attorney fees in medical malpractice cases, but I'm not sure those policies do the same if you are charged with a crime.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Here's what I learned about reckless homicide from Wikipedia: Reckless homicide is a crime in which the perpetrator was aware that their act (or failure to act when there is a legal duty to act) creates significant risk of death or grievous bodily harm in the victim, but ignores the risk and continues to act (or fail to act), and a human death results. This nurse didn't deliberately administer the wrong medication. She made a terrible medication error and will live with that for the rest of her life.
