Kimberly Hiatt Nurse: For Her The World Has Come To An End
After this had happened it was the end of the world as Nurse Kimberly Hiatt had know it. She was fired for the only mistake she had done in her 24 years of her medical career.
I can relate to this story because she was 50 years old when she committed suicide after accidentally giving a baby an fatal overdose of medication. She made a mistake of giving 1.4 grams of calcium chloride instead of 140 milligrams of the medication to baby Kaia.
I am 50 years old and if I had done this I would have ended my world too! I would not be able to live knowing I had killed a baby even if it was an accident.
On April 3, she was so devastated that all of this had happened to her that she committed suicide.
What made this worse for Nurse Hiatt is the parents did not pres any charges because they knew that their baby girl had had severe heart problems and she had been in and out of the Seattle Children’s Hospital since birth.
I am a mom of two and this would have ended the world for me if I had been told that my baby was killed by accident. I would have kept going but I would not have looked at the world the same. The nurse had came attached to the baby and this is why she was devastated that this had happened.
