Good Nurse Bad Nurse

Good Samaritan Nurse Bad Pediatric Nurse

December 10, 2019

This week Tina is joined by friend and fellow podcaster Christine from Antidotes Podcast: Stories in Medicine. Together they tell the terribly sad story of pediatric nurse Kelly Ripstra. Kelly was a nurse at Texas Children's Hospital when her daughter Rachel was born. A few short years later Kelly is being accused of unthinkable crimes against her daughter. They start off the show with a news story about a nurse practitioner in Alaska being charged in the deaths of several patients who overdosed on narcotics prescribed by her. They close out the show with a heart warming story of a nurse on her way to family Thanksgiving dinner who saved a man's life.
