How American hospitals protected a serial killer

During his 16 year career as a nurse, Charles Cullen moved from job to job at nine separate hospitals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, killing at least 40 patients -- and possibly hundreds -- by injecting lethal drugs into their IV bags.  Administrators at many of those hospitals either suspected or knew that Cullen was killing patients, yet they told nobody, and in at least one case, actively obstructed a police investigation.  The story is told in Charles Graeber's extraordinary book, The Good Nurse, which was the basis for this segment on 60 Minutes last night.
