In March 2022, a jury convicted RaDonda Vaught of criminally negligent homicide and impaired adult abuse for mistakenly administering the wrong medication, resulting in the death of a patient in 2017. The District Attorney's decision to prosecute and the ensuing jury verdict have left nurses and providers fearful of the prospective criminalization of medical mistakes.

Join us as we explore the publicized and undisclosed facts of the case through the lens of a clinical nurse, health care litigator and former prosecutor's perspective. We will discuss the system and operational issues that were identified during Ms. Vaught's case, subsequent policy changes, and what health care providers can do to protect themselves and their patients.
