    There are a plethora of choices for nurses nowadays. I have nurse friends who work in the insurance industry, the school system, corporate America, home health, etc.

    I am sorry you have had those experiences in nursing. 
    Maybe nursing is not for you? And that is ok. It does not mean that you are a failure. I absolutely love bedside nursing. I have been a bedside nurse for almost 30 years. I have an MSN in Informatics and I can't force myself to leave the bedside!

    Why should "just" the nurses go to jail? If the patient's wounds were so necrotic that the patient went into septic shock, this did not happen overnight. Doctors are paid a nice salary to oversee these patients most likely by CMS. The providers did not look at the necrotic wound? The providers did not ask for debridements? The patient's labs did not show an infection? The wounds were not ordered to be cultured? Is no one monitoring the patient's vital signs?
    I am not protecting other nurses when they are clearly wrong. There were 100,000 deaths due to medical mistakes last year according to CMS. No doctors are being hauled off to jail and no one is calling for doctors to be hauled off to jail. Usually, when these sentinel events occur, it is a systems process error. I can't go along with just the "nurses" are responsible.

    (CNN)Current and former employees of an Ohio nursing facility are accused of mistreating two patients in their care, including one who died as a result of the nurses' actions, Attorney General Dave Yost said Thursday.
    A Franklin County grand jury indicted seven people who worked as nurses in 2017 at Whetstone Gardens and Care Center in Columbus, Yost said in a news conference.
    The defendants face 34 charges, including involuntary manslaughter and patient neglect, Yost's office said.
    One patient "literally rotted to death" as a direct result of the nurses' neglect, Yost said, adding that another suffered physical harm because nurses falsified her medical records and forged signatures.
    "This is gut-wrenching for anyone who has entrusted a care facility with the well-being and safety of a loved one," Yost said.
    The accused include six current and former employees.

    Congrats on your job! I was an NA in nursing school and it was the best experience. Of course, during that time, we did not have EMR's! Enjoy your new job and don't worry about the documentation. This a skill that will come to you eventually.

    I’m sure Vanderbilt has an Omnicell or Pyxis. Why is the nurse allowed to override a paralytic? I would be willing to bet if someone did a root cause analysis of this unfortunate incident, there would  be a breakdown on many levels. When Incidents like this happen, very rarely is there one person/ department to blame.
