RaDonda Vaught, a former Tennessee nurse, killed a affected person in 2017 by administering the mistaken drug.  She was criminally prosecuted and convicted of gross neglect and negligent murder on March 25. She faces up to eight years in jail.

Some observers imagine the conviction will make hospitals much less clear about medical errors or dissuade folks from pursuing a nursing profession.

In gentle of those considerations, KHN desires to hear from nurses and different medical professionals about their reactions to Vaught’s conviction. When you fill out the kind beneath and ship us a selfie video reacting to the case, we would use it in our upcoming protection.
