Because he had a hangover and wanted to rest, the German nurse Mario G. administered deadly drug mixtures to his patients.
His head was pounding and he had a sinking feeling in his stomach. Going to work with a hangover was the order of the day for German nurse Mario G. (26). This had deadly consequences for his patients: After a night of drinking, G., who works in the Munich Klinikum on the right side of the Isar, wanted to have his patients in peace and therefore injected them with deadly or life-threatening drug mixtures.
Two people fell victim to his negligent way of working. “I had a hangover and my goal on duty was to be able to use my cell phone. That’s the truth,” said the nurse at the start of the trial before the Munich I Regional Court on Tuesday.
Three bottles of vodka and 25 beers in one day
As the “Bild” writes, citing the court process, the accused is said to have drunk massive amounts of alcohol on a regular basis. “For me there were only two daily routines. Celebrate. Or work, »said G. in the courtroom. He is said to have drunk up to three bottles of vodka and 25 bottles of beer on a day off. As the newspaper writes, he is said to have sometimes consumed a bottle of Jägermeister and ten beers immediately after getting up.
His daily alcohol consumption cost him 150 euros. “When I had to go to work, I put half a bottle of perfume on myself so that you wouldn’t smell the flag,” the nurse continued. Several times he fell asleep at work or was asked about his flag.
Nurse enjoyed helplessness of doctors
The drunk nurse now has to answer to the court for two counts of murder and six counts of attempted murder. He is also said to have stolen from a patient. This emerged from the indictment read out on Tuesday before the Munich I Regional Court.
According to the public prosecutor’s office, however, the defendant not only wanted to recover from his hangover, but also to test the effects of medication on patients. In addition to calming medication, he is said to have injected them with blood thinners or stimulating adrenaline.
The orderly was mainly on duty in the hospital’s waiting rooms, where patients are transferred from the intensive care unit after an operation before they can return to the regular ward. The two murder victims, aged 80 and 89, died several days after being given the non-prescribed medication without regaining consciousness.
The public prosecutor found that he felt he was being treated from above by the doctors and wanted to feel like a doctor himself. After administering the medication that was not prescribed, he enjoyed the helplessness and helplessness of the doctors, who could not explain the deterioration in their patients’ condition. The nurse felt that he was in a position of power. Dates have been set for the trial until May.
Among the victims is the well-known poet Enzensberger
The well-known writer and poet Hans Magnus Enzensberger († 93) was one of the nurse’s patients. Of the six accused cases of attempted murder, three are due to attacks on Enzensberger at the beginning of November 2020, but he all survived. During the third attack, the nurse Enzensberger is said to have injected six ampoules of adrenaline, triggering a life-threatening increase in heart rate.
Contrary to his living will, the doctors gave Enzensberger artificial respiration and, according to the indictment, were able to save his life. Enzensberger died last November, two years after the attacks, at the age of 93 of natural causes. (dzc/AFP)
