Nurse Denied Care to Patient in Cardiac Arrest. Help Revoke Her License

This petition had 431 supporters

It is a public health concern for Linda Brixon to work as a nurse or to be employed at any facility (home, private, or public) where patients are to receive care based on medical needs due to unprofessional conduct, patient abuse & neglect, failure to recognize signs of hypoxia, failure to remove restraints when patient was in cardiac arrest, failure to follow physician’s orders, failure to maintain cardiac monitoring, failure to notify physician or nurse practitioner when patient’s condition changed, failure to ensure patient cardiac monitor alarms were audible, and failure to perform a legal duty of care, which most, if not all, occurred while the patient was in cardiac arrest and contributed (in whole or in part) to the loss of life of a patient who died from lack of oxygen, even though she (Linda Brixon) had 23 1/2 years of experience in the nursing profession in the state of NC at the time the patient (and my daughter), 26 year-old Keisha Marie White, died at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC on May 10, 2014. The current discipline for Linda Brixon’s behavior is a 6-month suspension, after which, she will have the opportunity to work with patients again. Because Linda Brixon has shown reckless disregard for human life and is a risk to patient health, her being allowed to work with patients in the future is a public safety issue. We, as concerned citizens urge the North Carolina Board of Nursing to act now to revoke Linda Brixon’s nursing license.
