in our clinical trials. LOURDES DUARTE: SHOULD NURSES BE CHARGED WITH CRIMES FOR DEADLY MISTAKES MADE ON THE JOB. IT’S THE EVE OF A SENTENCING IN A RARE CASE THAT MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, SPECIFICALLY NURSES. THIS CASE INVOLVES A NOW FORMER NURSE RADONDA VAUGHT. SHE WAS CRIMINALLY PROSECUTED AND ERROR THAT LED TO A PATIENT’S DEATH AND NOW THIS NURSE IS FACING PRISON TIME. HER CASE HAS GAINED ATTENTION ACROSS THE COUNTRY WITH MANY NURSES AND ALSO MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS RALLYING BESIDE HER. THEY SAY IN AN ALREADY TIRED INDUSTRY. THE THREAT OF PRISON. TIME FOR HUMAN MISTAKES IS A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT TO SET HERE IS INVESTIGATIVE CORRESPONDENT RICH MCHUGH. 4 YEARS AGO INSIDE VANDERBILT MEDICAL CENTER. ONE OF THE TOP MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS IN TENNESSEE, NURSE RADONDA VAUGHT ADMINISTERED THE WRONG DRUG TO A PATIENT 75 YEAR-OLD CHARLENE MURPHEY INSTEAD OF GIVING HER A SEDATIVE OR SAID SHE GAVE HER A PARALYZING DRUG RECALL IT WOULD PROVE A DEADLY MISTAKE. MURPHY DIED IN FOR ALMOST 10 MONTHS. NOBODY KNEW HOW VAUGHN SAYS SHE TOLD THAT SHE ADMINISTERED THE WRONG DRUG TOLD THEM THAT. I WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHAT HAPPENED. I MADE A MISTAKE AND I GIVE HER. THE WRONG MEDICATION. BUT TO VANDERBILT DOCTORS TOLD THE MEDICAL EXAMINER THAT MURPHY DIED A NATURAL DEATH IN THE HOSPITAL DIDN’T REPORT THE FATAL MEDICATION MISTAKE TO THE STATE AS REQUIRED UNDER LAW VANDERBILT TERMINATED BOUGHT AND SETTLED WITH MURPHY’S FAMILY. AN ANONYMOUS TIP PROMPTED THE TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TO REASON THAT. THIS PATIENT IS NO LONGER TO HAVE CHRISTMAS WITH MY FAMILY EVERY YEAR. AND HURTS. GOES BY. THAT I DON’T THINK ABOUT. WHAT I DID AND HOW IT’S AFFECTED THEM. THEY CLEARED BOUGHT AND DECIDED NOT TO PURSUE ANYTHING AGAINST HER. BUT A YEAR LATER REVERSED COURSE WITHOUT EXPLAINING WHY THE STATE AND THE NATIONAL DA SINGLED OUT AND BOUGHT CHARGING HER AND NOT THE HOSPITAL. THE VICTIM’S SON GARY TOLD THE TENNESSEE AND HIS MOM WOULD HAVE FORGIVEN RADONDA VAUGHT UNQUOTE. SHE WOULD BE VERY UPSET KNOWING THAT THIS LADY MAY SPEND SOME OF HER LIFE IN PRISON TODAY. HER CASE HAS BECOME A RALLYING CRY FOR THE NURSING COMMUNITY. HI. I’M JENN A NURSE AND YOU IN THE NEWS BECAUSE 3 YEARS NURSES HAVE BEEN GIVEN MORE AND MORE AND MORE TO DO WITH I STARTED COVERING THE CASE WHEN SHE WAS ARRESTED IN MY PODCAST I AS A NURSE, I WAS APPALLED AND JUST COMPLETELY I SAW THAT A NURSE COULD BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED CRIMINALLY FOR. MAKING A MEDICATION ERROR IN MARCH. A JURY CONVICTED RADONDA VAUGHT OF CRIMINALLY OF AN IMPAIRED ADULTS. IT’S BEEN 4 AND A HALF YEARS. WHAT ARE THOSE OF THE JURY’S HAVE TO. AND CARRY AROUND THE WEIGHT OF WHATEVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH THE JUSTICE SYSTEM ANYMORE. PRISON. WE THE SEE THE FIRST AND BE COGNIZANT. TRUST YOUR NURSE. ERICA SAT THROUGH THE TRIAL REPRESENTING NURSES WHO COULD NOT ATTEND. SO YOU’VE BEEN IN NURSING FOR OVER 20 YEARS. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SITUATION LIKE THIS WHERE NURSES BEEN CRIMINALLY CHARGED. FOR MISTAKE. NO, NO, YOU HEAR ABOUT THOSE VERY RARE ANGEL OF DEATH TIGHT STORIES WHERE THEY PLAN IT. AND THERE IS INTENT, BUT NEVER FOR AN HONEST MISTAKE WITHOUT INTENT. A MISTAKE. SHE SAYS SHE REPORTED TO COLLEAGUES IMMEDIATELY. IT WAS A PARTICULARLY. EGREGIOUS CASE. ABSOLUTELY NO ONE DISPUTES THERE WERE THINGS THAT WERE MISSED THAT RADONDA HERSELF WILL TELL YOU SHE DID WRONG. BUT NURSES MAKE ERRORS ALL THE TIME BECAUSE WE’RE HUMAN AND WHEN ALL OF THE FAIL SAFES AND ALL OF THE SAFETY THINGS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN REALLY 100%. THE NURSES FAULT. WHY DOES VANDERBILT BEAR NO RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS MATTER. MALPRACTICE. IT IS NOT A CRIMINAL MATTER AND TO VANDERBILT SHARES EQUALLY IN THE RESULT OF THIS CASE. AS FOR DONDA AND SHOULD BE HELD EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE. LORI BROWN IS A NURSE ATTORNEY PAST PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF NURSE WHAT THEY DON’T TEACH YOU IN NURSING SCHOOL THEIR OR FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES JUST FOR DOING THEIR BE IT NEGLIGENTLY. THAT IS WHY THERE’S MEDICAL MALPRACTICE VANDERBILT MEDICAL CENTER HAS DECLINED TO COMMENT. WHILE WE’RE PASSING HOUR OUR PATIENTS COMMUNICATING WITH PROVIDERS COMMUNICATING WITH FAMILY. DOCUMENTING CHARTING. WILL DO ALL OF THAT WITHOUT MAKING ANY MISTAKES. LET ME GET ARRESTED AND FACE YEARS IN PRISON. THIS IS THAT A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT? IT’S A PROBLEM. AND I DON’T THINK THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT. THE ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO REMEDY THIS LEGISLATION TO PROTECT HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS FROM BEING CHARGED CRIMINALLY. FOR MAKING A MEDICATION ERROR FOR MAKING ERRORS WHILE THEY’RE WORKING. WE NEED THAT IN ALL STATES, OVER 211,000 PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED A PETITION ASKING TO GRANT RADONDA VAUGHT CLEMENCY BUT IF RADONDA VAUGHT IS SENT TO PRISON TOMORROW. A MASSIVE CHILLING EFFECT ON THE PROFESSION. IT CANNOT BE UNDERSTATED. THE DETRIMENTAL EFFECT THAT WILL HAVE ON THE NURSING COMMUNITY IF IT HAPPENS. AN INVESTIGATIVE CORRESPONDENT RICH MCHUGH JOINING US LIVE TONIGHT AT RICH. GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU KNOW, WE MENTIONED SENTENCING IS TOMORROW FOR RADONDA THESE CRIMINAL CHARGES. THE STATE WENT AFTER HER FOR NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE AND ABUSE. IT’S REALLY RARE, WHICH IS PART OF THE REASON RECOVERING IT WHAT WAS THE REASONING FOR CRIMINAL CHARGES IN A CASE LIKE THIS. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY POINTED TO REFERRED TO WHAT HE CASE WITH RADONDA AND SAID THERE WAS A SERIES POINT TO A SERIES OF MISTAKES THAT THAT SHE MADE OVER A DOZEN INSTANCES WHERE PROTOCOLS WERE NOT FOLLOWED. SO THAT’S THAT’S WHAT HE’S BEEN STICKING TO NOT CRITICS OF THAT ARE SAYING, LOOK, THIS IS A DISTRICT ATTORNEY WHO IS USING THIS CASE IT FOR POLITICAL REASONS. HE WAS RUNNING FOR REELECTION JUST GOT REELECTED. I THINK IT WAS LAST WEEK. SO. RAISES SOME QUESTIONS, RIGHT. AND IT ALSO THE LARGER IMPLICATIONS ABOUT WHAT’S AT STAKE FOR NURSES, THE RISKS OF DOING THE JOB AND HUMID AIR. I KNOW YOU TALKED TO LOTS OF NURSES AS YOU PUT WHAT’S THEIR BIGGEST ISSUE AND CONCERN WITH THIS PARTICULAR CASE AND WHAT IT COULD MEAN FOR THEIR JOB, THEIR PROFESSION. NURSES ARE YOU READ ABOUT RIGHT NOW. ONLINE NURSES ARE QUITTING BECAUSE OF THIS. THIS CASE. THEY SAY I’M ONE OF THE OTHER BIG THINGS IS LIKE WHAT IS THE IMPETUS FOR THEM TO REPORTING ACCURATELY MISTAKES. IF THERE IS THIS POSSIBILITY, IF THEY’RE GOING TO BE CRIMINALLY CHARGED. THEY SAY THIS IS TERRIBLE PRECEDENT AND IT SHOULD NOT GO THROUGH MAKES YOU WONDER IF IT’S IT’S WORTH THEY ARE RALLYING AS YOU MENTIONED, RICH. BEHIND THERE’S THIS PETITION FOR CLEMENCY. US MORE ABOUT IT AND WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I THINK IT IT ANYBODY’S GUESS WHAT THE JUDGE IS GOING TO RULE TOMORROW AND THE SENSING THERE’S I’M TOLD THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE RALLYING TOMORROW BY THE COURTHOUSE. THERE’S HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF THESE PEOPLE WHO’VE SIGN THIS PETITION FOR CLEMENCY SAYING I STAND WITH FOR DONDA. I AM SO THIS IS THIS IS GROWING. THE GOVERNOR. THIS IS UP TO ONE. THIS ULTIMATELY WILL FALL TO ONE PERSON. THE GOVERNOR OF TENNESSEE. HE IS TOLD ONE NEWS RECENTLY THAT HE HE WILL NOT INTERVENE AND WILL REMAINS TO BE SEEN HERE. ALL RIGHT. WELL, YOU’RE ON THE CASE AND WE’LL BE FOLLOWING IT AS WELL IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS WITH SENTENCING SET FOR TOMORROW. RICH MCHUGH. JOINING US TONIGHT LIVE.
