Canadian Nurses Protective Society Nursing Week Webinar: Nursing and Criminal Negligence
In a recent American court decision, a nurse was criminally charged after unintentionally administering the wrong medication to a patient, causing death. The nurse now faces several years in prison. This incident has led to many questions throughout the nursing community, including whether the sentencing is proportionate to the error and what impact this ruling may have on the reporting of medication errors and patient safety. In this webinar, the CNPS will aim to give you an overview of civil and criminal negligence in light of recent Canadian caselaw.
