SUMMARY ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Charles Graeber

To his family and friends Were it not for the hardboiled unrelenting work of two former Newark homicide detectives racing to put together the pieces of Cullen's professional past and a fellow nurse willing to put everything at risk including her job and the safety of her children there's no telling how many lives could have been lostIn the tradition of In Cold Blood THE GOOD NURSE does than chronicle Cullen's deadly career and the breathless efforts to stop him; it paints an incredibly vivid portrait of madness and offers a penetrating look inside America's medical system Harrowing and irresistibly paced this book will make you look at medicine hospitals and the people who work in them in an entirely different way. My sincere thanks to all the very dedicated Nurses and other medical staff that I know and love for their dedication to their careers and their patients I have faith that there are few people like Charlie Cullen The Good Nurse depicts Charlie Cullen as an angel of death In the truest sense this may be the term that is used to describe someone who murders hisher patients Though angels are not always good I've always seen them as such My picture of An Angel of Death is a person perhaps misguided who gives a very ill person an assist out of this world and puts an end to their suffering I do not consider this their right but can understand the concept A mercy killing I've never read any true crime story uite like this Throughout I continually shook my head It was bad enough that Cullen killed many people perhaps as many as 400 What I found incomprehensible and in the end despicable was the turning of the heads the ignoring of the facts the good references which allowed Cullen to continue nursing going from one hospital to the next for over 13 years this by hospital personnel and administration To maintain ratings; to prevent suits to get him out of their hospital Thank heavens someone a confidential informant finally helped police to stop Charlie CullenCharles Graeber did his best to provide a portrait of Charlie Cullen's actions and deeds I'm not certain he was ever able to truly scratch the service of what makes Charlie tick Writing 35 stars
