Overview

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 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

Not many things are more scary in life than contemplating the idea of a nurse killing her patients. A few have been found to do this because the patients were in great pain and going to die within days—they are often called angel killings. But when the killer nurse murders people who could have years of life yet to live, are happy, and in a most diabolical way, the horror is incredibly, well, horrible. John Foxjohn’s true crime story about such a nurse is riveting. He goes into great detail about all the facts and how the crimes were discovered. Possibly over thirty attacks were made on residents at the Lufkin, Texas, DaVita Dialysis Center. Two were witnessed, and this led to the arrest of Kimberly Clark Saenz, an LVN at the center who was apparently upset about a change of assignment that day. Although we never learn from the killer what her true motivation was for these murders, Foxjohn ties together events to give the reader a probable cause. If true crime is a genre you like to read, I highly recommend this one. But be warned, it is unsettling and not for everyone. Think carefully before picking it up to read.

This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I have read all of John Foxjohn's books, but this one is special. You can see the amount of research and work that went into this book. It is a must read!

This is really a book worth reading! The author makes you feel as if you are right in the court room, taking it all in from each witness. I am definitely a John Foxjohn fan now.

Being a nurse myself I could never have done what Kimberly Clark Saenz did to those placed in her care. Extremely well written and hard to put down. Mr. Foxjohn puts you right there in the dialysis center and then in the courtroom. I cannot say enough about this book. If you like true crime, don't miss this one. JS
