    My son was killed by a trusted, intelligent, seemingly normal person.
    I'm so very sorry about your son. I extend my condolences.

    I know there's been a few killers over the years in Australia as well.

    This one was earlier this year.
    He set fire to the nursing home he was working at.

    There are mentally ill people in every profession. Stories like this make me strive even harder to provide the best patient care I possibly can. It is not up to me to decide when people should die...that is up to a power far greater than me.

    I would imagine most serial killers would have such emotional problems as to make finishing nursing school difficult, if not impossible.
    They aren't psychotic. They have no feelings of guilt. They study "normal" people when growing up and learn how to act. They are great at blending in. Otherwise people wouldn't trust them and they couldn't take advantage of their victims.

    I have always been fascinated by Genene Jones. If only the first hospital had taken more action!The deaths at Sick Kids in Toronto is also fascinating as they never found a guilty person. Susan Nelles was accused but found innocent.
    There is some question now as to whether there was actually a murderer at all in this case. They certainly jumped the gun in persecuting Nelles.

    Not necessarily nurses, but there also seem to be a lot of serial killers in Washington state....I tease my older brother about it all the time!

    I've also heard that Washington state has many depressed people and the highest suicide rate of all the states in the union. Perhaps the incessant rainfall, gray skies and lack of sunshine affects peoples' mental health negatively. Who knows.

    I thought this would be about mistakes you could make like giving people to much K+.
