A look at some notable cases of caregivers killing patients
A former Texas nurse suspected in the killing of dozens of children is one of numerous caregivers sent to prison for the deaths of patients. Sixty-nine-year-old Genene Jones pleaded guilty Thursday to the 1981 death of an 11-month old. She was sent to prison in 1984 after being convicted for the death of one child and for giving an overdose to another. Other notable cases of caregivers being convicted of killing their patients include Niels Hoegel, the former nurse in Germany who liked to put patients into cardiac arrest because he enjoyed resuscitating them. He was found guilty last year in the deaths of 85 patients and sentenced to life in prison.
