**UPDATE May 2022**
Tennessee nurse, RaDonda Vaught, was sentenced to 3 years of supervised probation, evading a possible prison sentence of up to 8 years. The lighter than expected sentence sparked criticism from the nursing community that feels they are above the law and offered all kinds of excuses including insufficient staffing and a negative workplace culture.
If you are unfamiliar with the details of the sentencing of nurse RaDonda Vaught for felony reckless medical homicide and abuse of an impaired adult see this article. To be clear Vaught was found guilty of two (negligent homicide and gross neglect) of the three counts on March 25, 2022. She awaits sentencing where she faces up to eight years in prison. Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the United States.
Former Nurse Radonda Vaught’s Conviction Proves Allopathic “Medicine” is NOT Above the Law
Incredibly, allopathic physicians decry that a nurse’s conviction for “gross neglect of an impaired adult and negligent homicide” is somehow going to make their profession “worse”.
In an incredible display of prototypical allopathic hubris, the American Nurses Association issued a statement in response to the conviction of a nurse for “gross neglect of an impaired adult and negligent homicide” of a 75-year old patient.
Their statement read, in part, that they believe that the conviction sets a “dangerous precedent” of “criminalizing the honest reporting of mistakes.” They go on the claim that some medical errors are “inevitable,” citing nebulous and undefined more “effective and (more) just mechanisms” than criminal prosecution to address medical negligence.
I’ve written before about the dangers of having two sets of laws, and have compared medical boards to the Taliban who act to enforce devout compliance to whatever version of “medicine” they happen to have the most faith in this month. They persecute ethical physicians who tell the truth. They reward physicians who lie to their patients about vaccine injury & death risk.
The American Nurses Association complained that “(t)he nursing profession is already extremely short-staffed, strained and facing immense pressure — an unfortunate multi-year trend that was further exacerbated by the effects of the pandemic” and that “(t)his ruling will have a long-lasting negative impact on the profession.”
The “profession” of allopathic medicine has acted as if they are above the law for decades, treating criminal acts of their members as if they were internal matters. In my book, Cures vs. Profits I outlined the case of Dr. Farid Fata of Michigan, a cancer physician who, at age 50, pleaded guilty in 2015 to subjecting patients to cancer treatments who he had intentionally misdiagnosed with a terminal blood cancer called multiple myeloma. Some of the patients died (e.g., Kenneth Paul Loewen, RIP, d62) as a side effect of the chemotherapies he ordered for them. Fata was never charged with murder, or even manslaughter. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to 13 counts of Medicare fraud, one count of conspiracy to pay or receive kickbacks, and two counts of money laundering.
Over 550 families have filed information on Fata’s malpractice. In all, Fatah administered over 9,000 doses of unnecessary medicine. In May 2020, the convicted killer had the gall to apply for early “compassionate release” – get this – to avoid contracting COVID-19 in prison. His request was, justly, denied.
Other physicians get by via slick language manipulation, right under the noses of the citizens, their representatives, and the legal system. Take, for example, the current case. Directly from the nurse’s association statement: “We are deeply distressed by this verdict and the harmful ramifications of criminalizing the honest reporting of mistakes.”
The convicted felon, RaDonda Vaught, was never charged with “honest reporting of mistakes”. She was charged with “gross neglect of an impaired adult and negligent homicide”. Let that sink in. The American Nurses Association is trying to use DoubleSpeak to convey a completely different meaning of the former nurse’s conviction. Their language shows contempt for the US legal system.
The nurses who want no accountability to society for illegal actions include Janie Harvey Garner, founder of “Show Me Your Stethoscope”, a nursing group on Facebook with more than 600,000 members. She is cited in this story as stating that she is worried “the conviction will have a chilling effect on nurses disclosing their own errors or near errors, which could have a detrimental effect on the quality of patient care”.
The problem is not just hubris. It’s not just ignorance. It’s IRRATIONALITY. The value of feedback from society on what is working, and what is not working, which practices and medicine are safe, and which are not, is invaluable information that allopathic medicine should have been using all along to improve their industry. They have abandoned (literally) their oath to first, do no harm; they turned for profit in the mid-1980’s, and instead of heeding the warnings and feedback from patients and their families, they spend millions on denialist programs to hide the darkest parts of their industry and narcissistically gas-light and blame their victims.
Allopathy has proven that it cannot learn from its own internal system of “justice”. In their topsy-turvy world, there’s a thin white line: Medical boards penalize doctors and nurses for honest reporting of vaccine injury and death, but only prosecute medical negligence in the most egregious cases. The rest is swept out of sight by settlements paid out via medical malpractice insurance.
Some people cannot stand by silently while humanity is pushed through the allopathic sieve and ground to dust by fixed protocols and intentional misdiagnoses done for profit.
THIS is why over 100,000 nurses have left the “profession”. It’s not “unfortunate”. It’s a long overdue course correction in medical ethics.
It’s also about time society lay down the letter of the law. Kill us, and we’ll hold you accountable.
It’s time that those who still practice allopathic “medicine” take this message – and lesson – to heart and start using their brains.
It’s time you learn from your mistakes instead of burying them. It’s time that allopathic medical professionals with warped views of reality stop acting like spoiled brats and start acting like professionals.
