Angel of Death : Nurse Kimberly Saenz facing the death penalty after being found guilty of killing five patients by injecting IV lines with bleach
Daily Mail reports a nurse is today facing the death penalty after she was found guilty of injecting dialysis tubes with bleach, killing five patients and injuring five more.
Kimberly Saenz, 38, is was last night found guilty of murder in the deaths and aggravated assault in the injuries at the DaVita Dialysis clinic in Lufkin, Texas.
Saenz, who was arrested after a boom in emergency calls prompted an investigation into the clinic, has pleaded not guilty and was released on bail.
On trial: Saenz is accused of murdering five patients and injuring five others by injecting bleach into their tubing at a dialysis clinic in Texas
In 2008, a top fire official wrote an anonymous letter pleading for state health department inspectors to visit a clinic because of numerous calls for paramedics.
'In the last two weeks, we have transported 16 patients,' the April 2008 letter said. 'This seems a little abnormal and disturbing to my med crews. Could these calls be investigated by you?'
Within days, surveyors arrived. By that time, emergency crews had been called 30 times that month, including seven for cardiac problems. Four people had died.
This was compared to just two calls during the previous 15 months, according to the Texas Department of Health Services.
