RaDonda Vaught is a previous Registered Nurse who worked at Vanderbilt Medical Center. She made a medication error eventually leading to the death of the patient. Vanderbilt failed to report this incident to the Tennessee Department of Health and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. CMS was anonymously informed of this error and recently RaDonda Vaught was found guilty of negligence of an impaired adult and criminal negligent homicide. She can face up to 6 years in prison. 

RaDonda was honest with her mistake and took the necessary steps of reporting the incident. She unfortunately is the only one being held accountable for this mistake. 

Many have attested to her character, compassion, professionalism, and skills during her nursing career. She is not a threat to society and does not deserve to be criminally charged for a mistake. The patient’s family states the patient would not want RaDonda to be prosecuted for this mistake. 

RaDonda Vaught has made it clear that she takes accountability for her medication error. She has expressed her remorse to the patient and her family. Granting clemency for her mistake is absolutely what she deserves as she is the only person in this situation who has been up front and honest. She did not handle this situation out of greed and fear of scrutiny like the hospital she worked for. 

She needs the community’s support! She needs fellow nurse’s support! We have power in numbers. 

RaDonda Vaught’s sentencing is scheduled for May 13th, 2022.
