The case of whether a former Nashville nurse, RaDonda Vaught, should face jail time in the death of a patient after a medication error at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in 2017 is now with a jury.
Vaught, 38, was indicted in 2019 on two charges — reckless homicide and impaired adult abuse — in the death of Charlene Murphey at Vanderbilt University Medical Center just after Christmas 2017.
Murphey, 75, was admitted to Vanderbilt with a brain bleed and was being treated in the ICU. She died after receiving the wrong medication, a paralytic that likely stopped her ability to breathe.
Vaught was stripped of her license by the Tennessee Board of Nursing in July, after the board initially chose not to investigate the death.
