Recent Post on the Blog- 3/25/22

Hello, friends! Happy Friday! It feels so good to be spending more time in my little corner of the internet and having the time, desire, and creativity to write more frequent blog post. Writing really feels like a form of therapy but also distraction for me. I’m hoping to continue writing and find more ways to help my fellow CNAs, nurses, nursing student, and APRNs. I’m sharing some recent post you may have missed for your Friday morning or weekend reading.

RaDonda Vaught Criminal Trial

This has been my most viewed post this month on the blog. Radonda Vaught is a nurse who made a fatal but accidental med error and is now facing criminal charges. This post goes over the med error in more detail, the trial, and what concerns this raises for nurses. The trial ended yesterday, 3/24. We are awaiting the verdict. Look for a new blog post coming with an update on the trial, it should be posted in the next day or two.

This is one of the most intimate and personal blog post I have ever done and also one I am most proud of. I share a glimpse into what a 12 hour shift was like behind the Covid Unit Doors. And the effect it had on me after I walked off the unit.
