    'Room to Breathe'

Contributions during the COVID pandemic have only cemented Pandian’s status as a researcher and caregiver. It’s extremely impressive, and almost as unlikely.

    On the Pulse Podcast: Medical Errors

    Recently, a nurse was convicted of criminally negligent homicide and impaired adult abuse after mistakenly administering a medication that killed a patient in 2017. This is a rare conviction but one that calls for us to reconsider how we ensure accountability for everyone. The latest episode of On the Pulse, with SON Assistant Professors Jennifer Milesky and Nicole Mollenkopf, focuses on creating environments that can reduce medical errors and improving systems for better outcomes, accountability, and quality of care.
