    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    So you feel the hospital should test every staff person to make sure they understand basic nursing concepts? Like the 5 rights. Like monitoring patients for adverse reactions when giving IV push meds? Any nursing student knows these things. What if she paid lip-service to them and did her own thing when nobody was watching. There are lots of people who put on a good front but are very different behind closed doors. Perhaps this is just the first time she got caught. Given the sheer number of horrible decisions she made in this single situation it’s a good bet she’s been playing it fast and loose for a long time. Is the hospital supposed to be psychic?

    I highly doubt it. I would imagine he thought she was being transported like every other ICU patient he’d seen...on a monitor with a nurse in attendance. No reason for him to think otherwise.

    Tracheostomy question

    Wheezing is the physiologic narrowing of the airways (usually the small terminal ones but it sometimes can be heard in the large airways) due to constriction or inflammation. The only way to eliminate wheezing is to relax the airways or decrease the inflammation. We do this with medications such as albuterol and steroids. When you suction where does the tip of the suction catheter stop?

    If you’re going to post about this at least be accurate. Nobody TOLD her to bypass the checks. Nobody TOLD her to not do the 5 rights. She did that all on her own. I’m not sure where you’re getting your idea of how this went down but if you’d like to hear it in RV’s own words read the report. You can’t possibly have done so and come up with this. And not sure where you work but radiology departments DO have emergency equipment. The patient was not sick.

    Can you please explain why working vs not working makes a difference?

    Lab Coat or No

    I only wear mine when teaching classes. Not sure if they are appropriate in the assisted living environment and residents are likely to mistake you for a physician. Your professional business attire should be enough Please note...I am NOT saying they are inappropriate. Just not sure if they are.

    It would be very interesting to be in the courtroom and hear her explanation for her actions.

    Couldn’t we find a happy medium between complete a-hole and company suck-up?

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    I don't think any of us who agree with the indictment are breaking out the champagne over this. I am certainly not celebrating this nurse's downfall. I hope you weren't implying that.

    Except we haven't been at each other's throats. Nor have there been childish or immature comments. This has been a remarkably respectful discourse about an extremely polarizing subject. Just because we don't agree with you does not make us negative or immature.

    She is not being charged with murder. I agree that the abuse charge is gratuitous.
