Who's going to cast suspicion on Lifesaver Rambo? When everyone is lauding the hero, who wants to be the voice of dissention?

REminds me of the story of Orville Lynn Majors, he was an LPN. Murdered his patients, you can google it. Just terrible.

Crazy - on one of his shift the whole unit died (4 patients) if that doesn't raise suspicions I don't know what does.

They thought it was more like 130 patients, only charged with 6. No one in management was watching. There was a drastic increase in deaths when he went to work there and no one noticed.

Worked with a nurse like this. She would always be applauded for record time med passes when in reality she didn't pass 1 damn pill. She would pull them and throw them in the trash. When management was told about it, they didn't punish her, they gave her a raise and a promotion because she made their numbers look good with the state. Don't know what she's doing now but I got the hell out of there quick!

Just like Richard Angello,LPN,killed patients after pretending to rescue save them from the brink of death, Good Samaritan Hospital

did not catch him early enough.He was the hero nurse who rescued so many ,what a horror.

This case puts into perspective the situation of the poster who lost her job for stealing BP medicines. Of course she can still probably find a job in nursing given that so many serial killers maintained careers for so long. Then again Ted Bundy, got alot of dates and I've known many guys who couldn't get a single girlfriend so perhaps things are more complex. However, in the final analysis one of the potential solutions is simple. Hospitals need to have more of the EICU systems that "monitor" patient rooms (and digitally save recordings for possible future analysis). This is one thing that I used to love at Methodist because the service also came with experienced nurses and MD's who could "in a pinch" give me emergent orders (or instructions) if a patient was crumping and fast action needed to be taken (although their calling me on my phone and telling me that I was late on a glucose check or lab draw when I already knew I was behind and working feverishly to catch up was quite annoying).
