Hospital Nurse ‘KILLED up to 38 patients because she found them annoying’

Many people go to work each day dealing with their annoyances of fellow employees or customers just fine. They do their work, go home and deal. This hospital nurse was having a hard time with patients and now the italian police are investigating whether she could have killed up to 38 patients after she was accused of injecting one with a fatal dose of potassium.

Daniela Poggiali was arrested by officers in Lugo, northern Italy, after the unexpected death of a 78-year-old patient who was admitted with a routine illness. Today they revealed they had widened their inquiry to include 38 deaths, including ten which have been described as ‘very suspicious’.

One report by the Central European news agency said she was accused of giving her patients high doses of potassium because she found them or their families annoying. A staff member said Poggiali asked to have her photo taken next to a patient who had just died, according to several reports including in the Italian newspaper Libero Quotidiano.

Another reportedly accused the 42-year-old nurse of ‘joking’ about giving a high dose of potassium to a seriously ill patient.

I’m hoping that these stories are a mere coincidence and the woman is innocent but with the rampant culture of self gratification and blindness to human frailties it would not surprise me if they were true.
