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.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
