Pennsylvania nurse linked to 17 nursing home deaths (USA)

Heather Pressdee faces grave charges for killing 17 patients by administering excessive insulin doses. She targeted both diabetic and non-diabetic patients, often choosing overnight shifts to evade immediate hospitalization. The victims’ ages spanned from 43 to 104. Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, Michelle Henry, expressed profound dismay at a nurse betraying the trust of patients and underscored the paramount need for safety and care in medical facilities. Unreported murders may be occurring in care homes across Canada and the USA. Canada’s euthanasia law lacks adequate oversight, relying solely on the opinions of two medical professionals without robust checks. The substantial number of euthanasia-related deaths in Canada in 2022, totaling 13,241, raises concerns about the law’s oversight and implementation.
