  • Nurse Who Killed 38 Patients Because She Found Them “Annoying” Gets Fan Mail in Jail

    Daniela Poggiali, an Italian nurse, was arrested last month for allegedly killing up to 38 patients because she found them or their relatives annoying. One of her victims, Rosa Calderoni, brought her crimes to light after she died from an injection of potassium. Officials suspect that Ms. Poggiali may have killed two more patients on the same day of Calderoni’s death. Under Italian law, killing a patient through direct euthanasia with an overdose of drugs is illegal. Not that it would make it any better, but Ms. Poggiali didn’t claim that she killed her patients because she saw that they...

    DALLAS — A Dallas nurse who recovered from Ebola will soon be reunited with her dog, which has been sequestered since his owner became ill. The King Charles Cavalier spaniel named Bentley is in quarantine at an abandoned Navy base in Dallas. His owner, Nina Pham, was diagnosed with Ebola earlier this month. She contracted the virus while caring for a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who died Oct. 8. City spokeswoman Sana Syed said Thursday that the dog has tested negative for Ebola and that his 21-day quarantine — the Ebola incubation period — ends Saturday.

    The White House has declared a quiet war on the governors of New York and New Jersey for ignoring what administration officials snidely insist is their deference to “science” embodied in their opposition to quarantining health care workers who may have been exposed to Ebola. The White House has heaped scorn on Govs. Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie for refusing to allow potentially symptomatic health care workers to travel on public transport, but has incurred some criticism for interning nearly a dozen American soldiers who served in West Africa in an isolation ward in Italy. Some suggest that this...

    The second nurse, Amber Vinson, took a commercial flight from Cleveland to Dallas while she was potentially contagious. Vinson, like Pham before her, was on the hospital's "self monitoring" program. Essentially, workers who provided care to the patient have been instructed to monitor themselves for symptoms, use their best judgment to decide when those symptoms are serious, and report themselves to the hospital. This is the process which the CDC and the press have been bragging took only 90 minutes in Pham's case. But that number is meaningless, as it is only how long it took from when she decided...

I spent about 30 days on the day shift getting familiar with everything. I would witness...

    Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has filed charges against a nurse who works for late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart. The charges follow the conviction of late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, who killed babies in gruesome abortion-infanticide procedures and killed a woman in a failed abortion. Lindsey Creekmore, the only person who works as a registered nurse at Carhart’s (left) abortion business in the Omaha area, faces medical disciplinary charges. Bruning’s charges accuse Creekmore “of administering incorrect intravenous dosages of sedatives and a labor-inducing drug to 11 patients between January 2011 and March 2012,” according to an Omaha World Herald report....

    In 1943, two Hollywood movies were made about the heroic nurses of the Philippines, “Cry ‘Havoc’ ” and “So Proudly We Hail,” but the real-life Angels of Bataan and Corregidor were almost forgotten after they were interned. The letters they wrote to their families in America never arrived and were found after the war in a Manila warehouse. Mrs. Manning later said that the prison camp had no showers, beds or kitchens. A single toilet was used by hundreds of people. Yet somehow she and the nurses persevered. They maintained strict military order among themselves, always wearing their uniforms and...

    An elderly woman living at a retirement home in Bakersfield, California died after a nurse at the facility refused to administer CPR to save her. A new video has been released with portions of the 911 call during which dispatchers plead with the nurse to save the woman’s life. During the call, the nurse said it was against the facility’s policy. “Is there anybody there that’s willing to help this lady and not let her die?” the dispatcher asked. “Not at this time,” the nurse said. The incident happened on Tuesday when 87-year-old Lorraine Bayless collapsed at Glenwood Gardens. The...
