They fear losing their jobs or having it written on their record and having their addiction follow their careers for the rest of their lives.   A nurse was charged with reckless homicide and abuse after mistakenly giving a patient a fatal dose of the wrong medicine. Patient safety experts say this may actually make hospitals less safe.
