Blind Eye by James Stewart. Talks about a doctor who liked to kill people too and how he evaded the system for awhile. Little bit of a hard read but I enjoyed it.

Was this actually happening?

Yeah, it did. ITwas not a nurse or direct caregiver and it was just one person (I typed people inside of person, oops) they did it to was a significant other but it was well known locally at the time and was spooky.

Not to mention the nurse who "arranged" for codes so she could come off as a hero while resuscitating them...

Not a famous guy but I worked for a doctor recently on one of my travel assignments in very rural New Mexico and I SWEAR he was killing patients on purpose. All the permanent staff had seen him at one time or another, doing things that would purposely kill patients. They tried to report him but he was well connected and never got into trouble. I personally saw him refuse to treat someone with new onset facial droop and slur- never allowed me to get a CT for them so I can't definitively know it was a stroke but patient didn't make it.

Have never known anyone who would have been suspected of activities as far out of the norm as these cases. I can see why hospitals think they are in a bind with suspicions though; some nurses jump into every code because they are adrenaline junkies but they are not many. Never been an adrenaline junky myself, if I see 10 people in the room they do not need another body squeezing in.

Cullen, as I recall, was killing ill, elderly patients so I can see how it went on longer. I am more at a loss over how jones did this to healthy toddlers (or why, mt God what a horrible death!)

In the department of odditys' @ 15 years ago a Texas NA named Chante Mallard, drinking and driving, hit a homeless man and drove home with her unfortunate victim. She then went on to a 2-3 'party' at her home drinking and using meth, she went into the garage a couple of times and he was embedded in the windshield still alive. She apologized and left him there. @ 3 days later finding him dead she dumped him in a park. As he was homeless she thought they would not put a lot of resources into the cause of death; she was wrong.

She was charged with murder and I believe is still in prison.

"Hard read" like very disturbing?

You all seriously need to join me on Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community for all your true crime needs!

I am over there under another name and have noticed you there.

I don't participate, I'm just interested in what people come up with. Unfortunately, there are some ridiculous hand-wringers, far-fetched theories and users that try to match the most unlikely missing people to does. It can make one roll their eyes.

You are not like that, meanmaryjean, and I wish other posters were as level-headed. You do an excellent job explaining the medical aspects of cases to laypeople. I'm glad I finally feel able to compliment you on that.
