TV’s Lisa Hughes Recently Sat Down with Four Frontline Nurses to Discuss the Nursing Crisis, Medication Errors and Pending Legislation to Protect Patients

The following is from "The Women’s View with Lisa Hughes" section of the CBS 4 Boston Web site:

Medication Errors
An investigation is underway to determine why a nurse gave two newborns overdoses of Tylenol at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. While this case has made headlines, medication errors happen all the time. I sat down at Boston College’s School of Nursing with 4 veteran nurses. They talked openly about why they believe errors happen and what they think needs to be done.
