    Four families suing Somerset Medical Re: Victims of Killer Nurse

    Somerset Medical Center waited four months to notify authorities about suspicions that an employee was killing patients, and during that time nurse Charles Cullen murdered five more, according to taped conversations recently made public.

    The hospital is defending the delay and says it thought the appropriate step instead was to contact the state Department of Health and Senior Services about possibly abnormal laboratory results in several patient deaths.

    Chief medical officer William K. Cors, in a recorded July 2003 conference call with the state poison control center, said Somerset was not ready to alert police, even though the poison control chief warned the hospital it appeared to have a killer on its hands.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    A convicted serial killer who targeted hospital patients while he worked as a nurse will be charged next week in the deaths of five more people, according to a published report.

    Eight families who gained a $95 million civil judgment in 2010 against serial killer nurse Charles Cullen — but likely won't see a dime of it — have failed in their latest attempt to drag St. Luke's University Hospital back into their lawsuits.

    The families had asked a panel of state Superior Court judges to reverse Lehigh County Judge Edward D. Reibman's order dismissing St. Luke's from their cases.
