CASK

Carer-Assisted Serial Killing

Murder of patients in hospitals and nursing homes is a serious and escalating problem.  This is CASK.  Not short for casket, but…

With the activities in recent years of serial killers such as doctors Michael Swango (OH IL SD NY USA), Harold Shipman (UK), Jayant Patel (QLD Australia), Virginia de Souza (Brazil); and nurses Arnfinn Nesset (Norway), Genene Anne Jones (TX USA), Charles Edmund Cullen (NJ PA USA), Beverley Allitt (UK), Orville Lynn Majors (IN USA), Edson Guimares (Brazil), Lucy Isabella Quirina de Berk (Netherlands), Ariel Vomero and Marcelo Pereira (Uruguay), Roger Kingsley Dean (NSW Australia), Victorino Chua (UK), Megan Jean Haines (NSW Australia), Niels Högel (Germany), Garry Steven Davis (NSW Australia), Elizabeth Tracy Mae Wettlaufer (Canada), Lucy Letby (England), and mass murderering psychiatrist Radovan Karadzic (Butcher of Bosnia), it is clear that medical murder is to remain a problem in future.
