RaDonda Vaught, an ex-Vanderbilt nurse, has been indicted in Nashville with reckless homicide for a medical error that allegedly killed a patient.
Vaught, 38, faces charges of reckless homicide and impaired adult abuse in the 2017 death of Charlene Murphey.
Murphey, 75, died at Vanderbilt after being injected with the wrong drug. Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Jennifer Smith laid out the basic facts of the case for the jury on Monday.
Vaught was stripped of her license by the Tennessee Board of Nursing in July, after the board initially chose not to investigate the death.
In testimony before the the board, Vaught admitted fault in administering the wrong medication, but has maintained her error came from flawed procedures at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. That testimony was not made as part of the criminal case against her.
