The Good Nurse



The Good Nurse After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed The Angel of Death by the media But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.Cullen s murderous career in the world s most trusted profession spanned sixteen years and nine hospitals across New Jersey and Pennsylvania When, in March of 2006, Charles Cullen was marched from his final sentencing in an Allentown, Pennsylvania, courthouse into a waiting police van, it seemed certain that the chilling secrets of his life, career, and capture would disappear with him Now, in a riveting piece of investigative journalism nearly ten years in the making, journalist Charles Graeber presents the whole story for the first time Based on hundreds of pages of previously unseen police records, interviews, wire tap recordings and videotapes, as well as exclusive jailhouse conversations with Cullen himself and the confidential informant who helped bring him down, THE GOOD NURSE weaves an urgent, terrifying tale of murder, friendship, and betrayal.Graeber s portrait of Cullen depicts a surprisingly intelligent and complicated young man whose promising career was overwhelmed by his compulsion to kill, and whose shy demeanor masked a twisted interior life hidden even 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 lost.In 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.

    How could you resist wanting to read a book about a good nurse gone bad Since I work in the OR myself, I just was so curious about this book because it just seems so unbelievable I mean, how could someone who is trained to care for patients and be there for their every need want to kill them I wanted to see what could possess someone to do such a thing.The first quarter of the book was interesting It gave some insight to the nurse s background and habits I was mesmerized by the fact that he How could you resist wanting to read a book about a good nurse gone bad Since I work in the OR myself, I just was so curious about this book because it just seems so unbelievable I mean, how could someone who is trained to care for patients and be there for their every need want to kill them I wanted to see what could possess someone to do such a thing.The first quarter of the book was interesting It gave some insight to the nurse s background and habits I was mesmerized by the fact that he was such a hard worker and worked the hours that no one wanted to work, but would suddenly turn when he found something else outside of work to possess I was astounded by the fact that he could go from hospital to hospital after all of the suspicions that followed him and yet had no problems getting jobs and in area where people were dying It was sickenin...

    Absolutely chilling account of a killing sprees performed by a registered nurse on her most venerable patients It hits close to home, it really does All the methods of manipulating medication dispensers on the units, injecting digoxin or insulin into IV bags, or pushing wrong medications directly into patients IVs are still commonly performed and widely accepted on many units, and no one thinks about it twice Pharmacy sends and restocks medications constantly without second guessing orders N Absolutely chilling account of a killing sprees performed by a registered nurse on her most venerabl...

    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 his her 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 mis 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 his her 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 quite 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...

    I think the scariest part of the Exorcist was not the head spinning, stomach writing or projectile vomiting It was the test and treatments in the hospital Yes, hospitals can be the scariest place on earth and if you have a nurse like Charlie Cullen working there, run don t walk to the nearest exit.Charlie Cullen worked the hospitals of Pennsylvania and New Jersey from the late 1990 s to 2003 leaving a mysterious trail of dead patients in his wake Dead from overdoses of insulin and digoxin and I think the scariest part of the Exorcist was not the head spinning, stomach writing or projectile vomiting It was the test and treatments in the hospital Yes, hospitals can be the scariest place on earth and if you have a nurse like Charlie Cullen working there, run don t walk to the nearest exit.Charlie Cullen worked the hospitals of Pennsylvania and New Jersey from the late 1990 s to 2003 leaving a mysterious trail of dead patients in his wake Dead from overdoses of insulin and digoxin and epinephrine either injected into their IV bags or directly into the patient themselves Many were not even his patients When suspected of the deaths but lacking solid proof the hospitals would terminate his employment but give him a neutral job appraisal so Charlie would just go to the next hospital down the road and start killing all over again The why is never very clear It was just a co...
