People undergoing dialysis are generally in poor health and have a shortened life span, so it was not unusual for DaVita Dialysis Center patients to have to be rushed to the hospital, in the clinic in Lufkin, Texas however, the number was unprecedented and considered too high. The parent company sent investigators, everything was checked, and checked out. Everything but the employees. Then one day two patients reported seeing a nurse inject bleach into the IV ports of two patients. It was unbelievable, but true.
Of the 34 patients rushed to hospital in April 2008, 5 died. All were found to have been injected with bleach, the only known case of a serial killer using bleach to kill.
Kimberly Clark Saenz was a LVN at the center. Fellow employees reported her odd behavior during emergencies, she appeared to not want to help. Then two patients stated they had seen her inject bleach into the IV ports.
We get some biographical information about Ms. Saenz, but most of the book is about the victims, the crimes and the trial. Even though he gives a very detailed account of the trial, it not word for word transcript and he keeps it interesting, explaining the complexities of Texas law as he goes along. If you like books heavy on the trial and light on the personal information, I recommend this book.
