Episode details

by now, most of us have at least heard of RaDonda Vaught and the cover-up by Vanderbilt University Medical Center of the tragic death of Charlene Murphey. on March 25 2022, RaDonda was found guilty of criminally negligent homicide and abuse of an impaired adult in the context of a medication error. we welcome back nurse homie and union thug Rach (aka “Just Some Nurse”) to discuss the timeline of events, relate some personal experiences, interpret the systemic conditions that could allow something like this to happen, and evaluate the implications this trial may have on healthcare workers and patients alike. join us as we barrel into the fresh new contradictions of 21st century Medicine - the American way.

here’s a good timeline of events

on May 13, RaDonda Vaught was sentenced to 3 years of supervised probation - no jail time mashallah!!!
