Resuscitation Rambo

Niels Hogel, a German nurse, has been sentenced to a second term of life imprisonment in connection with the death of 85 patients who were in his ‘care’. He was sentenced to his first life term in 2015 following his confession to having given 90 unauthorised injections to patients; 30 of them died. It’s thought he may have killed more than 200 people.

He liked to take patients close to death and then show off his skill at resuscitating them, and enjoyed being known as the ‘Resuscitation Rambo’.
