Download from Smashwords (eBook)

This book captures the stories of five doctors who have killed their patients, including, Harold Shipman, Marcel Petiot, Michael Swango, H.H. Holmes, and John Bodkin Adams. It is amazing that these people chose a profession to help save lives, but preferred to kill.

Is it not their job to curtail suffering and death? We sometimes put our lives in the hands of doctors, trusting that our best interests are the most important to them. Thankfully, there are only a handful of doctors who have been inclined to murder their patients, and they do not represent the millions of doctors who genuinely care and uphold their oath. 


Excerpt

In this book, I have written about several doctors who have killed their patients, including Harold Shipman, Marcel Petiot, Michael Swango, H.H. Holmes, and John Bodkin Adams. These are only some of the dozens who have been convicted. It is amazing that these people chose a profession to help save lives, but preferred to kill.

The Hippocratic Oath is pledged by every physician, swearing to practice medicine in an ethical manner. In my opinion, doctors that kill are actually ‘Hypocrites,’ which the dictionary defines as “a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.” Is it not their job to curtail suffering and death? We sometimes put our lives in the hands of doctors, trusting that our best interests are the most important to them.

Thankfully, there are only a handful of doctors who have been inclined to murder their patients, and they do not represent the millions of doctors who genuinely care and uphold their oaths.

Nevertheless, it’s not only doctors who have killed in healthcare; there have been several nurses convicted for serial killing as well. Nurse Donald Harvey, for example, killed eight-seven patients and claimed that he started killing to “ease the pain” of patients, but eventually found it to be a sadistic pleasure. His methods included cyanide, arsenic, massive amounts of morphine, turning off ventilators, overdosing on insulin, adding tainted fluid to IVs gathered from patients with Hepatitis B or HIV, inserting a coat hanger into a catheter to cause kidney failure, and suffocation. Harvey is currently serving three life sentences.



Professional Reviews

Glenn Langohr
Doctors Who Killed by R.J. Parker is a comprehensive, detailed dossier of the vile and malicious nature of a small percentage of the medical profession who has killed, intentionally. The pictures and layout make this book a treat. You can relate the info and place it to a face. Also, the author's genuine take on the acts, bring a human feeling to the psychological acts behind the murderer's hiding behind a medical uniform.

Debbee S.
I made the mistake of reading this book while waiting for my son to undergo a biopsy at Mass General. I had to put my kindle fire away and go for a walk to put my self in check. I will never understand how these doctors have been able to get their degree and ability to write prescriptions for dangerous narcotics. The extent some went through to hide their crime only gave proof to their hideous intelligence! If you're a R.J. Parker fan then add this book to your collection, he will not disappoint you!

Orange County Weekly
You expect the highest of standards and integrity with doctors, but these health professional operators are killers! A compelling read, chalked full of detail and hard to put down.
