    'A German nurse has admitted killing 30 of his patients by injecting them with cardiovascular medication.

    The 38-year-old, identified only as Niels H, told a court-appointed psychiatrist that he had wanted to show off his “excellent” resuscitation skills. He is suspected of having killed 178 patients who were in his care at Delmenhorst hospital, near Bremen, in northern Germany, between 2003 and 2005.

    The psychiatrist, Konstantin Karyofilis, told a court in Oldenburg that the accused administered a cardiovascular drug by injecting it into patients’ veins in order to orchestrate medical emergencies that would then require him to resuscitate the patients in the hospital’s intensive care unit...'

    Oldenburg (Germany) (AFP) - A German nurse was sentenced to life in prison Thursday for murdering two hospital patients but authorities fear a far higher death toll after he admitted killing 30 people in a thrill-seeking life and death game.

    The 38-year-old man, identified only as Niels H., has admitted to injecting his patients with lethal drug doses in a bid to try to revive them and shine as a saviour before his medical peers.

    [...]
    Authorities said Monday they would exhume the bodies of more former patients to test them for traces of the lethal doses of heart medicine amid fears H. is one of the worst serial killers in German post-war history.

    The sweeping investigation is looking into some 200 fatalities recorded at the hospital where he worked and at his previous places of employment to find out whether the confirmed cases are only the tip of the iceberg.

    Identified only as Niels H under German court reporting rules, the accused told the court he acted on impulse.

    "Usually the decision to do it was relatively spontaneous," he said.
