A veteran died as a nurse’s aide played video games instead of checking on him, report says

"The nurse’s aide responsible for monitoring him overnight didn’t check on Bill Nutter on the night he died. Instead, she was playing video games on her computer, the Globe reported, citing a person with firsthand knowledge.... Immediately after Nutter’s death, Bedford VA Medical Center reassigned Patricia Waible — the aide who reportedly failed to check on him — to a cafeteria job. The nurse who made the “cut-throat” gesture was still on her probation period, and was terminated, the Globe reported.Waible initially insisted — and signed paperwork — claiming she had checked on Nutter as required. She eventually admitted the truth after she learned that hospital cameras showed her never leaving her computer during her shift." -The Washington Post
