According to Dunyanews an Italian nurse who has been arrested under suspicion of killing 13 patients, is suspected to be a "serial killer." According to the news article:
Fausta Bonino, 56, allegedly killed the patients aged between 61 and 88 between January 2014 and September 2015 at a hospital in the Tuscan town of Piombino
Bonino is accused of having given her victims up to 10 times the usual dose of the drug, including in certain cases where it had not been prescribed by the physicians treating the patients.
The result, police said, was to rapidly trigger multiple and irreversible internal bleeds which killed 12 of the alleged victims. The other one died from cardiac arrest.
Police at Thursday’s press conference said the arrest had potentially averted further deaths.
But local newspaper Il Tirreno suggested the hospital authorities may have had suspicions about Bonino early last year. The nurse was moved from the intensive care unit in October 2015 to a role in which she had no contact with patients.
Italian Health Minister, Beatrice Lorenzin, referred to Bonino as possibly one of the biggest serial killers in Italian history.
