T.L.C.: Tender Loving Crimes relates a story that could happen anywhere.
A male nurse begins working the fourth floor of a hospital. He requests the night shift. Suddenly, a number of patients start dying on during the night.
The unusually high death rates are noticed by a pharmacist who tells his supervisor, but nothing is done. He goes over his supervisor’s head, and still nothing is done. Then the pharmacist goes to the police and an investigation is ordered.
When the statistics are examined, a correlation is found between the deaths and the nurse’s shift. The nurse is fired, as well as the pharmacist! The whistleblower goes back to Chicago, leaving behind his fiancée and his dreams for their future.
What happens in the next hospital where the nurse applies some TLC?
