She was hired to nurse them back to health...instead, she took their lives.
For months, the DaVita Dialysis Center in Lufkin, Texas had been baffled by the rising number of deaths and injuries occurring in their clinic. In April alone, they’d rushed thirty-four patients to the hospital. But no one expected such a horrific cause to be behind it all.
Kimberly Clark Saenz was a well-liked licensed vocational nurse at the center. The East Texas nurse was a mother of two, and known for her smiles and the stories she told to help patients pass the time. But on April 28, 2008, witnesses came forward to say that instead of lifesaving medication, they’d seen Saenz adding toxic bleach to IV ports. Turns out, it wasn’t the first time. Once caught, the shocking story of Saenz’s murderous practices began to unravel…KILLER NURSE-John Foxjohn

Inventions are born from various circumstances. Some from necessity, some by accident and some just for fun! However, many inventors never take the next steps in manufacturing or marketing their products because of what they predict to be a lengthy process full of headaches and worst of all- a failure. It is important to remember that if inventors gave into their fear of failure, we would have missed out on products and methods that not only make our lives easier, but save lives in healthcare!
Today, we sit down with Sarah Mott, a Registered Nurse and inventor of the Lotus Stethoscope Holder. She also happens to be the founder of Nurse Born Products, a company that encourages other nurses to pursue their ideas and sell their products. Sarah guides nurses through the process and will share some of her tips for success with us today!
