#4.6: Deadly Mistakes, the RaDonda Vaught Case (with Ret. Special Agent Bruce Sackman)
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week, we're sitting down for a second time with Retired Special Agent Bruce Sackman, who spent his career tracking down medical serial killers. The topic of today's interview is the case of RaDonda Vaught, the story of a nurse who mistakenly gave a patient the wrong drug, ultimately leading to the patient's death.

In this incredibly unusual case, RaDonda was just convicted of criminally negligent homicide and criminal neglect of an impaired adult for her medication error. We're here to get Bruce's opinion on the case that recently rocked the healthcare field.
