Free ANA Webinar on Criminalization of Nursing Errors

September 20, 2022

Nurses across the United States were shaken by the RaDonda Vaught case. Many are now worried that their mistakes can result in prosecution and possible imprisonment. ANA has extended the availability of this important webinar.

Presented by Edie Brous, JD, MSN, MPH, RN, a nationally acclaimed nurse attorney, nurse advocate and speaker, this free, on-demand webinar addresses those fears and evaluates the Vaught case within the context of other cases in which health care professionals have been criminally charged. Topics addressed include:

  • How criminal charges for medical errors undermine patient safety
  • Just culture and support for the Second Victim
  • How professional organizations have responded to medical errors
  • Examples of similar cases and the risk of cases being brought against nurses for medical errors in the future
  • Steps you can take to reduce your criminal liability
  • How to become involved in addressing the issue of criminalization of medical errors

Register today for immediate access to the recorded webinar.
