Italian Nurse May Have Killed 38 Patients and Taken Selfies With Them

Cops are investigating a nurse from northeastern Italy in connection with the deaths of 38 patients in her care. Daniela Poggiali, 42, is suspected of injecting the patients with potassium chloride, which can induce┬ácardiac arrest, because she found them or their family members “annoying.” She may have also taken selfies with the dead bodies.

Poggiali became a suspect after co-workers noticed patients would worsen or die during her shift. They described her as a “cold person but always eager to work.” Now they know why.

The investigation was triggered after a 78-year-old patient was found to have died from potassium chloride. Police found a photo on her phone from a few months ago where she was giving a thumbs up next to a patient who had died moments earlier.

Proving her part in the other deaths may be more difficult as the potassium leaves no trace after a few days.

Another co-worker said the nurse was once reported for giving powerful laxatives to patients at the end of her shift to spite the nurses working after her.

Poggiali is the type of person that’d draw a dick on your face when you pass out at a party or stick you with a needle of ebola if you stepped on her shoes. That is to say, she may be prone to slightly overreacting.
