What was she thinking letting her sleep it off? Didn't she have a procedure in place for medication errors? Did she have an medication administration training at all? That's unbelievable. I work with vulnerable adults, and we have policies in place for medication errors that we are trained in at least yearly. Bad enough that the med error happened in the first place, but to not get her medical care as soon as the error was found is unforgivable.

Doesn't look like she has what takes to run the camp, best to close it or sell it to someone who does.

Have there been other errors documented at this camp? It has been there many years and served the residents of many group homes and if this is the first serious problem they have had it sounds like they may have been doing a good job. Or is there more to this story? Doctors make fatal mistakes every day. Their practices don't get shut down until they have made numerous fatal mistakes.

This is blatant abuse and neglect of a vulnerable adult. I hope the old bitch slowly dies in jail as the guards watch.
