As a Dialysis Patient Safety Advocate, critical of delivery of care in many units (Davita problems can be seen at www.qualitysafepatientcare.com ) I believe that all are innocent until proven guilty. I should remind all who follow this case that this facility had problems with care long before this nurse worked in the facility. At one point, from recall, someone from corporate came to the unit to meet with staff - before this nurse arrived. There is much that happens behind the scenes that can result in patient harm. Although Davita professes they give quality safe care, inspection reports clearly show different. Personally, again, I believe all are innocent until proven guilty. There might be more to this case than meets the eye.
