Verdict Expected This Week For German Nurse Who Killed More Than 30 Patients

February 23rd, 2015

A 38 year old nurse, Niels H. from Germany is admitted to killing 30 or more of his patients as part of thrill seeking game. He is being charged with three murders, and two attempted murders as he injected them with an overdose of heart medicine only to see if he could revive them.

He apologized to the families of his victims with the explanation that it was only a game, and that he would understand if that wasn’t accepted. While on trial he admitted to performing this game on at least 90 patients, with over 30 of them dying between 2003 and 2005. A spokesman for the court stated, Niels became bored after being moved from the emergency room to a quieter setting.

Niels admitted to getting a thrill when he performed CPR , and decided to induce the need for resuscitation himself.

Since his admission to so many numerous cases, police are now looking into some 200 other death cases that happened while the man was working in Delmenhorst, Wilhelmshaven and Oldenburg.

There are questions as to why he was not stopped and brought to justice sooner. Marcio Alaor BMG wonders: Was there failure in the hospital system and law enforcement? He was charged in 2005 with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder. It was not until 2008 when he was finally convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison. This is when the other cases were discovered.
