RaDonda Vaught to join nurses on healing trip to Costa Rica

RaDonda Vaught's conviction for a fatal medication error kickstarted a national dialogue about patient safety culture and made her a household name within the industry. Though Ms. Vaught has largely remained out of the public eye after her sentencing, she is giving nurses a rare opportunity to get to know her during a vacation to Costa Rica.

 "Nurse Erica," a Las Vegas-based hospice nurse, nurse advocate and social media influencer is hosting the seven-day trip with Ms. Vaught in September. 

"RaDonda's case unified nurses around the world. It highlighted the corruption that nurses face every day. This is a rare opportunity to get to know RaDonda and I in a safe, close group of likeminded individuals," Erica, who does not publicly share her last name, wrote in the trip description. 

The trip will be an opportunity for nurses to come together and heal from the trauma of Ms. Vaught's conviction, which spurred an outcry from nurses across the country who said the ruling sets a dangerous precedent for the profession and discourages nurses from speaking up about errors. 
"RaDonda continues to receive words of support from nurses around the world. They are curious about her journey, how she's managed to heal and rebuild her life," Erica told Becker's.
Nurses have until the end of July to register for the trip, which costs $2,499 per person. As of June 7, seven spots were still open.
