Survey aims to grasp nurses' sentiment about recent conviction of former Tennessee nurse RaDonda Vaught

Posted 5 months ago by Charlotte Baez Diaz

June 30, 2022- On March 25, 2022, RaDonda Vaught, former Neuro ICU Nurse at Vanderbilt, was convicted of criminally negligent homicide and gross neglect of an impaired adult. Vaught mistakenly administered Vecuronium instead of the intended medication, Midazolam (Versed). Vaught recognized her mistake immediately, and took necessary steps to report the error to her superiors. Unfortunately, the patient succumbed to the paralytic effects and suffered an anoxic brain injury and ultimately death.  In the end, she has lost her nursing license, and will serve 3 years of probation for mistaking two similar worded medications and neglecting to identify it before administering it to the patient.

Below you will be able to take a 14 question survey asking your thoughts and opinions concerning this case.
