First Appearance "Vulnerable"

Hope Garrett was the manager of Jubilee Towers nursing home and the prime suspect in the murders of several elderly people at the home.

Garrett would poison residents with highly-concentrated doses of epinephrine, then try to save them in order to look like a hero. Some residents were saved, but three died this way. Before this, Garrett fatally poisoned seven patients at Oak Glade, another nursing home where she once worked.

After Dr. Melinda Warner's testimony against her, Garrett was convicted and executed for seven counts of premeditated murder. (SVU: "Vulnerable")
