A former male nurse has been charged with killing 97 more patients in Germany.
Niels Hoegel is already serving a life sentence for convictions in two earlier patient murders.
Hoegel’s swarthy appearance leads me to observe that he may be mixed race. He’s certainly not the Aryan superman ideal associated with the Germans.
Lingering questions remain about how he could have committed his murders without any other medical personnel noticing. Socialized medicine appears to have offered cover for a thrill seeking monster.
A German nurse serving a life sentence for two murders has been charged with another 97 hospital murders, prosecutors said Monday. If found guilty, it would make him Germany’s deadliest post-war serial killer.
The male nurse, identified only as Niels H. under reporting rules, is accused of intentionally bringing about cardiac crises to relieve boredom. The charges relate to two hospitals where he worked in Lower Saxony, Germany, over a seven year period.
Niels H. was sentenced to life in prison in 2015 on two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder and battery.
During the trial it was heard he confessed to the killings of 90 more people during his employment in Oldenburg and Delmenhorst hospitals, prompting investigators to carry out toxicological examinations on dozens of other patients who died at the hospitals.
Oldenburg public prosecutors office confirmed Monday that, following extensive investigations and toxicology analyses, Niels H. is being charged with an additional 97 murders.
62 of these murders allegedly happened while he worked as a nurse in Delmenhorst between 2003 and 2005 while the remainder occurred during his employment in Oldenburg between 1999 and 2002.
In three additional cases investigators deemed suspicious, tests didn’t produce enough evidence to add them to the charge sheet.
During his trial, the court heard the nurse was a, “thrill seeker,” trying to break up a boring routine by bringing people to the brink of cardiac arrest before attempting to resuscitate them.
A variety of drugs were used in his resuscitation attempts. He did this to present his resuscitation skills to colleagues and supervisors and to fight his boredom, the prosecutor’s statement said. The prosecutor added that the nurse should have been aware that the drugs he used could cause life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias, even ventricular fibrillation and hypotension.
Police said that earlier intervention from health officials could have stopped the male nurse. Investigations into the involvement of former staff at the facilities are ongoing. A date for a new trial has yet to be confirmed.
We in the aging West have a serious problem associated with hostile and/or indifferent medical techs holding sway over us in the healthcare system.
The word “care” is, according to some reports I’ve seen, the missing word in patient care. In the US and I suspect in Europe and Australia, there are now large numbers of nonwhite “care givers” who attend to white patients. While all of them may not be serial killers, there is the old adage that doctors bury their mistakes. And that was when doctors were good, solid white men.
Hoegel is a psychopath. How many more are lurking out there, doing their deadly deeds unnoticed. A patient asking for a clean-cut white nurse and doctor would be accused of racism, with possible negative consequences.
Helpless Caucasians are now at the mercy of some very shady, seedy characters. Hoegel is probably just a small sample of the reality.
