Nursing & Criminal Negligence

In a recent American court decision, a nurse was criminally charged after unintentionally administering the wrong medication to a patient, causing death. On May 13th, the sentencing decision was released: the court ordered probation rather than a prison term. The sentencing judge noted that the nurse had expressed credible remorse. This incident has led to many questions throughout the nursing community, including whether the sentence is proportionate to the error and what impact this ruling may have on the reporting of medication errors and patient safety.
