Serial killer German nurse may have killed 178

A German nurse admitted to at least 30 killings.

“A German nurse has admitted killing 30 of his patients by injecting them with cardiovascular medication.

The 38-year-old, identified only as Niels H, told a court-appointed psychiatrist that he had wanted to show off his ‘excellent’ resuscitation skills. He is suspected of having killed 178 patients who were in his care at Delmenhorst hospital, near Bremen, in northern Germany, between 2003 and 2005.

The psychiatrist, Konstantin Karyofilis, told a court in Oldenburg that the accused administered a cardiovascular drug by injecting it into patients’ veins in order to orchestrate medical emergencies that would then require him to resuscitate the patients in the hospital’s intensive care unit.”
