Med errors have consequences…
A former nurse at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) in Nashville, Tennessee, has pleaded not guilty to reckless homicide after giving a patient the wrong medication.
Nurses around the country, in particular the online nursing community, Show Me Your Stethoscope, have rallied in support of RaDonda Vaught, RN.
In a statement issued the day before Vaught’s February 20 arraignment, the American Nurses Association offered its condolences to the deceased patient and her family and acknowledged that “the full facts and circumstances of this incident are still developing.”
