How do you feel about the guilty verdict in the RaDonda Vaught case? It seems she made a genuine mistake. I understand it cost someone their life, which is very unfortunate, but homicide?

I'm worried about what everyone else is worried about. Is the precedent now set that people should not honestly report their mistakes because they fear criminal charges or retribution from the law? I also think that the University happily threw her under the bus, but that's my opinion.

Same sentiments as the first commenter. Sometimes precedents don't provide a holistic solution to issues. However, I'm also keeping my eyes and ears open. I feel uncomfortable with just reading the news since sometimes, judicial justice would differ from the actual truth.

Unfortunately, everyone is afraid. This was the final push many needed to walk away from the profession. But at the same time, everyone must be extra careful when dealing with patients, so maybe the fear is a good thing?

More specifically, to the nurses, how has it effected you?

Apparently, nurses can no longer make mistakes or be human.

Which is unfortunate, but it was a genuine mistake. I think her family should sue the hospital for negligence rather than having her be imprisoned for homicide.

So, I started watching “Limitless” with Chris Hemsworth. Apparently, he found out he carries both genes for dementia which puts him at a higher risk. So the series is about him changing things in his life for longevity. The third episode is about fasting and he fasts for 4 days until the day he has to hunt for his food. Does anyone in healthcare have thoughts on this type of fasting? I know it is done in some cultures and religions, but to what extent?

Hi all! New to fishbowl and looking for some advice! I currently have 2 bachelors degrees and a Masters in Health Sciences. I have 7 years of inpatient healthcare experience and have started as a Data coordinator in solid tumor cancer research about 3 months ago. I get paid around $20/hr and am highly overqualified for basic data entry. However through out this process I’ve realized I love the science of what I do and want to possibly be a clinical scientist. Path/job suggestions?
