Nurses Who Kill!

  1. My latest Netflix binge series is 'Nurses Who Kill'. This is a British series. It examines notorious cases of nurses who kill in the line of their work.

    It has a lot of dramatic re-creations that are a bit unrealistic, well quite unrealistic, with extra large syringes and needles that are used to administer the killing medications. It's not the best the BBC has to offer by any means.


    Nevertheless I am going to finish the series. I expect time and a half pay for this effort on my part.

    I dunno about y'all, but we had the shift from hell last night. Bottle of wine + doughnut + Nurses Who Kill = possibly the most important coping mechanism of the modern world. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Now here's coincidence - sitting at the nest desk from me at this moment is an RN who had the misfortune to be a colleague of this stellar individual: Life for nurse who killed patient, 84 - Telegraph

    What if nurses who kill had as much job security and mobility as police who kill unarmed or nonviolent citizens?

    I reckon that'd be when I headed for the bomb shelter and LOCK the door!

    What makes you think they don't?

    Medical error vs nursing error?

    Of course, most of the deaths are related to errors, mistakes, or Unexpected events.

    When Tamir Rice or Castille Philandro were murdered it was no accident. Yet the officers were exonerated and got different jobs.

    Does that happen in nursing?
    Seems to me that BONs are not terribly forgiving.

    Medical 'mistakes' include a lot of septic 90 year-old pts whose antibiotic was 20 minutes late and COD cannot be determined to a tee. As is the case with all regulatory agencies stats are puffed up to CDC et Al benefit. Med mistakes (actual where pt had a chance) are not 3rd leading COD just because an agency has twisted stats.

    NPR as a source? I am liberal and still think NPR is about as biased as FOX news...
