    UK - Nurse accused in insulin poisonings, deaths at Stepping Hill Hospital, 2011

    Last Tuesday a nurse at Stepping Hill Hospital noticed after a round that many patients on her ward had very low sugar levels.

    She informed her superiors, checks were done and it was discovered that bags of IVI saline had pin pricks and had been injected with insulin

    Three patients have died and another is seriously ill.
    Have we got another Allitt at work here?

    Good series of articles at this link

    Few details at present. 26 year old, female hospital nurse arrested on suspicion of murder.
    Hospital staff and police seem to have worked very effectively here


    Few more details on Telegraph Website

    Daily Mail has a major go at it:

    Nurse, 26, arrested on suspicion of murder of three patients who died after drips were tampered with
    *Fourth 'victim' critically ill as damaged drip found on maternity ward is reported to police
    *Staff at the hospital had been told to work in pairs
    *60 detectives investigating medication sabotage after three deaths

    etc. etc.
    Long article, with pictures of a diabetic actor, the sadly deceased (who all look like people you'd be glad to
    know), the investigative stalwarts, an agency-worker building, the front of the hospital, etc., at DM link above.

    Ah, the Mail, they have her convicted already. 'Fun-loving,' they say - the kiss of death from them! And - "she often changes her hairstyle." GUILTY AS CHARGED, THEN. Can't get them for libel, though - they've put 'party girl' in quotes, the wily scamps.

    I'm guessing she will be found not guilty. Police were up against it on this one, have to charge somebody.

    I just checked, she is still on the nursing register. They cannot suspend her unless she is charged.

    Her Facebook, I wonder if the baby is hers?

    I must say I am a bit surprised that she has been named, would think that the media would be a bit more cautious after the Chris Jefferies fiasco

    Reading through her FB seems she does a lot of nights and complains of being tired a lot.
    May have applied for a promotion in the spring but doesn't say whether she got it.

    I must have missed this DM pic the first time around. They've now got her down as a wine lover who buys cigarettes! Gasp! They've not only convicted her already, they've given her a whole life term. I HATE TABLOIDS.

    Nurse still being questioned, held in custody. I do not understand this crime at all.
    I am a RN and cannot imagine why someone would do such a thing

    Two more dead, this takes the total to five and a 41 year old man remains critically ill.
    No charges yet,
    From above link;
    "Detectives have been given extra time by a superintendent to question her. They now have until 1800 BST, or will have to apply to the magistrates' court for further time."
