This is a made for tv movie.
The first hour was just stiff, total paint by numbers reading the lines badly, but the second hour of it seemed to loosen up some. The story improved as did the acting.
The story is loosely based on actual events of several different situations. Just as the credits roll, three separate end tags appear explain this.
This is a bit scary, the whole fact that the events this film was centered around happened, that they happen all the time in the world. There was a scene were the lead character actually brings up the idea to her boyfriend that what if this doctor got into the medical field to kill? Kinda makes you not want to trust anyone.
