Nurse accused of killing 20 elderly patients

  • A Japanese nurse was accused of tampering with intravenous drip bags at the hospital she worked

Kuboki told police the attacks were timed for the patients to die when she was not at work so she would not have to deal with heartbroken relatives.

Kuboki was arrested Saturday on suspicion of killing 88-year-old Sozo Nishikawa by injecting disinfectant into his intravenous drip.

A 31-year-old nurse suspected of having a hand in the death of 48 patients at Oguchi Hospital in Yokohama in the summer of 2016, has reportedly confessed to murdering the ill patients that were already on the verge of death.

Several days after security cameras were installed at the hospital following the deaths of Nishikawa and Yamaki, the cameras caught Kuboki walking in the hospital while carrying a box containing insulin, a drug used to decrease blood glucose levels of patients with diabetes.

"It would be a nuisance if that responsibility fell on me", she explained.

A former nurse in Japan may have killed dozens of patients by poisoning their intravenous drips, police have said.

Police found the same solution in the bodies of two other senior patients, an 89-year-old man and 78-year-old woman, who died around the same time as the two men. She added that she had not noticed anything unusual during her shifts at the hospital.

Staffers told Asahi Shimbun there were no red flags.

In their investigation police found 10 more antiseptic-contaminated IV bags with needle holes in the rubber seals among the 50 bags stored near the nurse's station on the floor where Nishikawa died - the floor where Kuboki worked as a nurse.

Another said: "She was the kind of person who was hard to figure out ... but she was considered competent".

When police investigators checked all uniforms worn by nurses in charge of the patients on the fourth floor, they found the antiseptic on only one uniform - that worn by Kuboki - around the pocket.

Kuboki was registered as a nurse in 2008 and worked at another hospital before joining Oguchi.

Police questioned Kuboki in late June after she quit the hospital.

Doctors said Nishikawa died of natural causes, but Kuboki would later admit to injecting Nishikawa's intravenous drip bag with a disinfectant, The Guardian reported.

Some 48 patients died at the Oguchi Hospital from "unusual circumstances" in a three-month time span in 2016.

Former colleagues said they were shocked to learn that Kuboki, who started working at the hospital in 2015, had been arrested.
