In 1980-81, 43 babies died at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children from a supposed digoxin overdose. Serial murder was suspected, leading to the arrest of nurse Susan Nelles. In order to clear Nelles’s name, an investigation was launched to find an alternate explanation.

No one on the Grange Royal Commission of Inquiry had expertise in diagnosis. The post-mortem diagnosis of digoxin poisoning was based on a single biochemical test without knowledge of the normal values. Gavin Hamilton’s extensive research shows that a toxin found in natural rubber, a digoxin-like substance, might well have been the culprit in the babies’ deaths.

Currently there is great interest in the role that forensic medicine plays in crime investigation. At least six television programs (three "CSI's,"two "NCIS's" and "Body of Proof") all stress how medical procedures are used to determine the guilt or innocence of alleged criminals. Unfortunately the limitations of these studies are rarely identified. Dr. Gavin Hamilton's book, "The Nurses are Innocent, The Digoxin Poisoning Fallacy," addresses this issue in great detail. He identifies the medical problems that resulted in the indictment of a nurse at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada for the deaths of children alleged due to her administration of the cardiac drug Digoxin. His clinical observations on the contaminants present within intravenous solutions, as well as the misuse of postmortem blood digoxin levels provide the fascinating scenario which eventually resulted in the nurse's proof of innocence. I recommend this book for all "CSI" buffs who want the insight of an astute observer into the many phases of forensic medicine as well as their potential limitations.
