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. 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 more lives could have been lost. THE GOOD NURSE-A True Story of Medicine, Madness and Murder-Charles Graeber
A discussion with the Wife of patient that after complaining of his level of care and the workers in the clinic, he was terminated for what appears to be trumped up reasons. He has since been blackballed from other clinics in his area; with no clinic to go to he has been forced into HOSPICE.
This appears to be an ongoing problem with DCI, Fresenius and Davita. This patient was a Davita patient. Dialysis Advocates went to their Legal Department and Javier Rodriguez the CEO of Davita. It appears that no one cares at the CEO level; we’ve asked him and the Legal Department to help with this patient. Nothing came from our request to CMS to help this patient who had no appeal and is not allowed to face his accuser.
This is happening much too often in too many clinics where complaining about care or workers leads to retaliation. What if any investigation is done at the clinic level is often poorly done and biased in favor of the worker or clinic. Patients are not allowed to see the results of an investigation nor are they allowed to face their accuser. A patient it appears has to go to legal to clean up a record they are not allowed to see.
We are having too many patients with the same situation Nationwide. One even having to strip down naked before getting dialysis.

Our guest, Jim Bouchard, is the Director of Marketing & Development for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH). Your hosts, Burl and Merry, received compassionate support in caring for Burl’s mother, Mary Ann Hall, during the final months of her life from AHCH. In gratitude, we wish to share the empatheic and responsive care Mary Ann and we, as caregivers, received with our listeners.
AHCH “cares for the health, independence, and quality of life of Maine residents and their families in the comfort of their home and community. When a person is ill or homebound, the power to heal involves more than medical treatment. It's also the touch of a hand or the warmth of a smile.” The agency has a longstanding community service mission focused on building and sustaining a continuum of in-home services to address the acute, long-term and end-of-life care needs of individuals and their families.
Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
We are especially moved by the final days Mary Ann and we spent at Hospice House, thoughtfully designed to be sensitive to the needs of patients and their families, "allowing family members to be relieved of the role of caregiver and focus solely on gathering together to support their loved one.”

Camille Adair is a registered nurse, filmmaker and entrepreneur. After the 2008 premier of her documentary film, "Solace: Wisdom of the Dying", Camille completed the Solace Teachings, a documentary series with accompanying training materials focused on end of life, hospice and palliative care.
The Solace Teachings are an excellent tool for healthcare organizations, community groups and anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of death and dying.
Based on her career in hospice and palliative care, Camille’s passion for creative healthcare solutions led her to create FairCare, a sustainable healthcare model based on the principles of the triple bottom line, where businesses consider their relationship to the planet, people and profit.
Camille joins a growing number of like-hearted colleagues who are committed to positive change and a new healthcare paradigm based in environmental justice, social equity and the impacts of the aging population contrasted by the shrinking healthcare workforce.
