A former nurse in Germany, identified only as Niels H., has admitted to a psychiatrist that he murdered as many as 30 patients. He may have killed more than 100, as investigators are trying to determine.
From 2003 to 2005, nurse Niels H. was working at a clinic in the German town of Delmenhorst. He began the practice of injecting his patients with a very dangerous heart medication, to the point that their heart would stop. He then practiced his resuscitation skills to “bring them back to life”. If they were revived, he would often inject them again so that he could practice some more.
He claims that at least 60 patients survived his attacks, as he was able to revive them and not kill them again in the process. As for those that did not survive, he recently admitted that there are at least 30 that he could not resuscitate. In actuality, it is possible that as many as 170 people died in his hands. From 2003 to 2005, the death rate at the clinic that he worked at more than doubled.
In 2008 he was sentenced to serve seven and one half years in prison for the attempted murder of one patient. He is now on trial again, since September of 2014, for the murder and attempted murder of two patients. During this trial, he told the court appointed psychiatrist that he had already murdered 30 patients, and revived another 60.
When asked why he killed so many, he claimed that he wanted to practice his resuscitation skills. He also claimed that he was “bored”.
Obviously, this is another example of a horrible nurse that decided to take lives, rather than uphold his duty to save them. This story reminds me of the Italian angel of death nurse that killed over 100 patients because they, or their family, were annoying. In that case, she not only killed them, but she also took many selfies with her and the corpses.
What do you think about this deadly German nurse that decided to kill his patients because he was bored?
