ANA’s Free On-Demand Webinar: Criminal Charges Against Nurses: What You Should Know and What You Can Do

In February 2019, RaDonda Vaught, RN, was arrested on a criminal indictment and charged with reckless homicide and abuse of an impaired adult after mistakenly administering the wrong medication that killed an elderly patient in 2017. This spring, Nurse Vaught was found guilty and sentenced to three years supervised probation.

Nurses across the United States were shaken by these shocking events. Edie Brous, JD, RN, a nationally acclaimed nurse attorney, nurse advocate and speaker, will evaluate the Vaught case within the context of other cases in which health care professionals have been criminally charged.  Registration closes on September 3, 2022 at 1 pm ET. Register now to receive 24/7 access to this webinar.
